Meet Allie

Hi! My name is Allie and I am a Registered Social Worker and BSW with Kids Zen. I am also a mom to a busy two year old. Life has so many beautiful moments but it is also has overwhelming, stressful, and anxiety provoking moments as well. This is especially true for parents and their children trying to navigate and cope with the busy demands of life. Our children have the biggest hearts and at times have the biggest emotions that can be challenging to regulate. When our children and teens are experiencing these feelings, it can be difficult for them to express their emotions in an effective and helpful way. As parents it can be hard to know what to do or say in these moments. I believe that everyone has the strength and resilience to overcome these challenging times through learning new skills and coping strategies in a safe space that allows you to process through life’s heavy moments. I enjoy supporting people with learning new ways to regulate their emotions, improve their interpersonal relationships, and to learn new ways to cope in distressing situations.  


I have experience working with individuals and their families individually as well as in a group setting. I have training in Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy. I have experience working with adults who struggle with parenting, trauma, and addictions. I also have worked with children and teens who have experienced trauma, abuse, and neglect. My goal is to start with where you are at and work collaboratively to find coping strategies that are impactful and effective for you.  


In my spare time I enjoy being with my husband and our toddler. When I am not spending time with my family, you will find me spending time with friends, travelling, or watching dinosaur or whale documentaries. I look forward to working with you and your family by walking alongside you during your mental health healing journey.
