I am a Registered Psychologist with specializations in working with adolescents, young adults, couples, and families. My approach to psychotherapy is holistic and is based on the foundations of various evidence-based modalities of treatment, including Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Additionally, I have attended workshops and trainings for other modalities including Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Gottman Couples Therapy. I have trained and worked in a variety of mental health settings throughout Alberta including experiences in community mental health clinics, health centers, emergency shelters, and addiction treatment facilities.
It is important that my clients feel seen, heard, and understood. I believe that people do well when they can, and are capable of growth and change when psychological barriers are removed from their path. My practice is trauma and attachment informed and you can expect that I will attempt to help you make sense of your world through this perspective. I believe that the patterns in which we attempt to get our needs met through interpersonal relationships is a crucial piece of understanding our mental health.
