MEd, BA(Hon)
Registered Psychologist
Life is filled with very few certainties, but we can be certain that life will always change. Sometimes that change is big and explosive, while other times change happens so slowly that we barely notice it. Sometimes we seek that change for ourselves and other times that change can be thrust upon us. However you find yourself in relationship with the notorious thing called change, please know that you are not alone and that you can and will get through this.

I am a Registered Clinical/Counselling Psychologist in good standing with the College of Alberta Psychologists (#4539). I have both my Masters and PhD (to be conferred June 2024) in Counselling Psychology from the University of Alberta. For the last 15 years I have trained and worked in a variety of mental health settings including addictions, acute mental health, sexual assault centres, and have extensive experience in health psychology with a focus on end-of-life, grief counselling, and cancer care. I work with adults across the lifespan from young adults to seniors and elders addressing challenge such of depression, anxiety, grief/loss, fertility concerns, perinatal mental health, and changes brought by cancer.

Working with me, you will find someone who deeply wants to understand your unique experience and all the factors that have shaped who you are. I use an integrative counselling approach drawing from my diverse background and skills to develop a therapeutic experience personalized to your needs and counselling goals. My goal is to hold you with compassion while offering a firm but gentle hand in helping you navigate whatever changes life holds. At the centre of my practice is a core belief that you are capable of healing, development, and integration, and I will strive to help you see that possibility within yourself. I look forward to talking with you to see if I am the right fit for you.
