I am a Registered Psychologist working in the Edmonton area. Deciding to go to therapy can be a difficult step, so it is important to me that I provide a safe, welcoming, and non-judgmental space for you to explore whatever brings you to counselling. As a strength-based counsellor my goal is to empower and support you in finding solutions to, or new ways of looking at, your concerns. In a therapy session with me, I will work with you to discover what skills and resources you bring to the table and support you in figuring out how to use them to live a happier and healthier life. People are not “one size fits all” so I use a variety of therapies to help my clients achieve their goals, including Solution Focussed Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Narrative Therapy, and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
Prior to getting my Masters in Counselling from City University of Seattle, I spent several years working in post-secondary as a resource to adults with a variety of disabilities and mental health concerns. I also have experience with sexual violence and childhood sexual abuse through past work at a sexual assault centre. I am a member in good standing with the College of Alberta Psychologists. My interests lie in working with adults with a range of concerns including, ecogrief, depression, anxiety, grief, self-esteem, trauma, sexual violence, life transitions, relationships, and infertility.
