Expressive play therapy utilizes many forms such as sand tray, puppets, dollhouse, art, and crafts. These expressive mediums provide a developmentally appropriate way for children to process thoughts, feelings, and experiences.  Play is a child’s natural language and it encourages children to explore and understand how they feel about themselves and the world they live in.  


The toys and other materials Jaime has available in her office allow children the freedom to choose their own way of exploring and expressing themselves.  Jaime's role as counsellor is to be attuned to the child in the present moment, to follow and guide in the expressive play, and to assist in processing experiences.

"Play is children's language and toys are their words".

(Gary Landreth, 2012)


Sometimes life experiences can leave us struggling to cope with daily expectations and relationships. In addition, traumatic events can impact one's ability to function and enjoy life. Jaime has experience supporting people to regain a sense of safety and hope in their lives. 


Jaime offers individual counselling for adults, youth, and children who face a variety of challenges.




Jaime is approved through the British Columbia Association of Clinical Counsellors to provide clinical supervision and consultation. Jaime has experience providing supervision and consultation for counsellors who are graduate level students, counsellors working in private practice, and in a contract capacity for counsellors in agencies and non-profit organization settings. 

Jaime's goal is for supervision/consultation to be a rewarding and caring experience. It is an interactive process that aims to improve the quality of client care, increase counsellor clinical skills, and nurture professional growth. You can expect a respectful and collaborative space to receive support and a safe environment in which to explore client-related concerns, celebrate success, and explore challenges.

Clinical supervision/consultation is an important part of a clinician's development and sustainability. You as a person are a vital part to the clinical
process so topics such as self care, boundaries, and work-life balance are often common in the supervision/consultation process. 


 Jaime is an approved provider for personal sessions at all levels for Somatic Experiencing students and is also approved for individual and small group consults at the Beginning level. These sessions and consultations count towards the necessary hours required for students to earn their Somatic Experiencing Practitioner designation.
