You’ve Come To The Right Place!

Erin Margetts Helkaa is a mom to a wonderful little girl, a qualified Birth and Postpartum Doula, as well as a Maternal Mental Health Specialist, Childbirth Educator and Acupuncture Detoxification Specialist. Erin began learning American Sign Language in 2012. With an honours degree including a major in Psychology and minor in Child & Family Studies, Erin is passionate about all aspects involving the emotional and spiritual well-being of others. She worked in the mental health field for over 11 years, supporting children and youth in care, developing, promoting and delivering mental health education programs/courses, facilitating groups and providing peer support.

Erin shares, "I am passionate about working with children and their families and supporting them in finding tools that will assist in the attachment process. I strongly believe that sign language is a powerful communication tool that can help to accomplish this. I have used sign language with my daughter since she was about 6 months old and have seen firsthand the profound impact that it can have on a child’s confidence and ability to communicate effectively. My daughter experiences a number of challenges and had a severe speech regression at about 18 months. Sign language helped to lessen her frustration and enabled her to use an alternative method to share what she needed to share with those around her. I love helping families learn to use sign language as a way of strengthening their bond and to facilitate communication in a fun and interactive way! "
