Hi, I'm Lurline.
Welcome to Allius!
You have taken an important first step toward transforming your life into one that best reflects who you want to be. We all recognize that life is not always going to be easy. There are going to be times when we all could use some help to work through challenging situations and experiences. Struggle is universal. Seeking out professional support demonstrates your willingness to invest in yourself and your relationships. I look forward to meeting you and working with you.

I have been working professionally with children, teens and their families for over two decades. I have specialized in working clinically with young people and their families since 2008.
I am a family-focused therapist who uses parent-child attachment and the neuroscientific principles of parenting to work with behavioural difficulties, anxiety and trauma. To best support young people, I use a blend of creative, cognitive, brain-body and developmentally sensitive counselling solutions.
With adults, my counselling practice prioritizes healing trauma and relationship wounds; improving anxiety and panic symptoms; navigating key life transitions; learning to work through conflict while mending disconnection from our most valued relationships.
I continue to focus my professional development training in areas that support clients' well-being based on science, evidence and research outcomes.
