I have worked as a facilitator for over 18 years working with child and family services, treatment centers, recovery houses, schools, international mediation firms. I was a divorce mediator for almost 8 years and then in my last month of working I assisted a family with working through their issues to such an extent, that they ended up staying together. This was a massive shift in my professional approach and went back to school and got a Masters in Science (Applied Psychology) specializing in mental health.

I then began working for nation-wide organizations such as Homewood Health & Morneau Shepell. Just prior to coming to  Navya Hypnosis, I was a Crisis Management Specialist for Homewood Health in Nova Scotia. My primary work was debriefing front line Hospital, University and Fire department Staff. Offering Cognitive Behavioral Therapy & Emotion-Focused Couples Therapy (EFCT) involving mental health issues including; family and relationship issues, conflicts, substance abuse, and trauma. Prior to that I worked for Family Support for Children with Disabilities (FSCD) for a few years, supporting families in crisis with issues involving depression, anger management, life transitions, personal issues and other physical, social and emotional problems.

I have more than 8 years of experience in a collaborative approach with psychology & mediation specializing in addiction issues. I have attended extensive workshops and courses on chemical dependency at Caron Institute in Philadelphia and Hazelden youth and Family Centre in Minneapolis. My approach is mainstreamed by building a safe space for you and your partner to feel comfortable enough to share your triggers with one another. Secondly, I can assist with an effective Emotion-Focused Couples Therapeutic approach, supporting the underlining feelings that arise from your triggers.
