Whatever difficulty or concern that invites someone to counselling, I strive to offer the same safe and collaborative space for goals to be reached. Sometimes this means supporting clients to re-connect with the resources they hold within themselves. Other times, this means acquiring new information, skills or abilities.
Ultimately, it is my hope that throughout the therapeutic process clients may be better able to find wholeness and healing within themselves and their relationships with others. Some of the people I most enjoy working with are those who may be exposed to trauma through their work as Public Safety Personnel, such as Police, RCMP, EMS and Fire Fighters, and are experiencing symptoms of PTSD.
I am a Registered Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists and a member with the Psychologists’ Association of Alberta. I have over ten years of experience in the mental health field and have devoted my work primarily to private practice since 2011, with a growing interest in trauma-related work.
My areas of Specialty
I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Prolonged Exposure (PE) for trauma-related work. I also draw from Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Attachment/Systemic Therapies, and Mindfulness.
