There are challenging times in everyone's life when we find our skills and ways of coping are just not enough. As a registered psychologist, I strive to help people develop the skills and resilience they need to navigate the inevitable and sometimes necessary changes they face.
I use an eclectic approach to help guide the healing process with emphasis on solution focused, cognitive behavioral therapy and mindfulness techniques.
I have worked with a variety of clientele diverse cultures, backgrounds, sexuality, abilities and ages experiencing a wide range of difficulties.

I am a masters level trained psychologist, with 18 years of various clinical experience. I have extensive experience working with adolescents suffering from mental health issues. I have also had practical work with youth and adults engaged in addictions. Through out my practical experience, I have studied how trauma and PTSD impact all areas of an individuals life acquiring a specialization in the treatment of trauma. My love of learning and passion for helping has facilitated to me engaging in a variety of courses and intervention techniques, including: suicide and self harm, anxiety interventions, working with individuals impacted by depression, advanced CBT interventions, trauma and attachement, addictions and trauma, codependency treatment, sound therapy and more.
