"The part of you that loves you more than anything else has created roadblocks to lead you to yourself. You are not going in the right direction unless there is something pricking you in the side, telling you, “Look here! This way!” ".- A.H. Almaas
As a Registered Psychologist, I use a person-centered foundation for my work assisting clients to move through challenging and painful life experiences. I believe in the uniqueness, courage and ability of each person to achieve a life of wholeness. I work with a range of clients, from teenagers to adults experiencing struggles in relationships, mood disruptions, stress, chronic pain and trauma. I have a strong background in working with survivors of sexual abuse, and a special interest in working with those who devote their lives to helping others (such as First Responders, Medical Professionals, Correctional Officers, Child Protection Workers, Therapists and Teachers).
I am also interested in supporting professionals entering the career and offer Supervision to Master's level counsellors and Provisional Psychologists.
I have advanced training in the areas of Prolonged Exposure Therapy, Clinical Hypnosis, and in my Advanced year of Somatic Experiencing training. I am a Certified Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapist and EMDRIA Approved Consultant. I offer direct billing through Blue Cross, Veteran's Affairs, RCMP, Canadian Forces and Health Canada- FNIHB.
