Child Protection Roster Mediator Details

I specialize in Conflict Resolution third-party intervention. I have formal training in mediation, negotiations, and conflict coaching. I have also successfully completed B.C. 'Hear the Child training', in 2020. My work history includes many sectors from education, government, social services, as well as solution-based counseling for non-profits associations. In this time of counselling I assisted clients with mental health and addictions, domestic violence, family reconnections, and civil separations. When working with clients my goal is to provide a fair, friendly, professional, and safe environment. I am looking forward to exploring the next steps with you and your family.
I would like to respectfully acknowledge the traditional, ancestral, unceded territory of the Hupačasath and Tseshaht First Nations, where I live, work, and play. As a guest on this land, I have been blessed to witness many ceremonies of healing, and resolution. It has been an honor for me to sit in circle, being able to learn and apply the teachings to my life and my work. Over the years, I have also enjoyed facilitating family group conferences, parenting circles, and restorative justice peacemaking circles.
