Welcome

 

About

I am a Canadian-born artist and arts administrator currently living in London. While I primarily consider myself an actor, producer, and inclusive theatre facilitator, I am also interested in writing and directing. I hold a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Theatre (Acting) and Psychology from the University of British Columbia, and am currently pursuing my Masters of Counselling through Athabasca University.

In terms of counselling practice, I am interested in working with children and families in care contexts, using expressive arts based therapies, narrative therapy and solution focused approaches.

Please take a look around. I hope to make this site more comprehensive as I get better at using it, but please get in touch if you need more info so we can connect!

Facilitation

Arts Education & Inclusive Arts Practice

For the past four years much of my work has revolved around working with young people. Some of the organisations I have worked with in Canada include Quest Theatre (Calgary, AB), Gateway Theatre (Richmond, BC), Gilmore Elementary School (Richmond, BC), and Ronald McDonald House (Vancouver, BC). 

In London, I presently work with Chickenshed Theatre (K&C, H&F and Westminster), DreamArts (Westminster), and Active London (North London). 

I have a particular interest in working with neurodiverse young people and adults in theatre settings. I am in the beginning phases of creating a multi-sensory theatrical adaption of a classic novel, with the eventual intention of producing a small scale tour to support centres around London.

Counselling

Second year graduate student and trainee counsellor

My practical and research interests include working with neurodiverse young people and the parents and carers around them. I have experience working one-to-one with young people with autism, both in traditional settings behavioural settings (home settings and schools) and arts contexts. 

 

My theoretical inclinations include narrative therapy, expressive arts therapy, systemic family therapy, sensorimotor psychotherapy and solution-focussed therapy. I pursue a holistic and client-centred practice.

In Fall 2019 I will start my eight-month practicum placement as part of the Masters of Counselling degree requirements for Athabasca University at The Children's Foundation.
