I believe in the benefits of giving voice to experience and the rich possibility this can bring.
I completed undergraduate work at the University of British Columbia and the University of Western Ontario. I received my Master’s degree in counselling psychology from City University of Seattle. I have experience and clinical training in working with children, adolescents, adults, families, and couples.
In my work I am curious and principled; I am encouraging and strategic. My approach is evidence-based and influenced by
solution-focused brief therapy
cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
family systems therapy
I have training in emotionally focused couples therapy and response-based therapy for trauma. I am qualified to offer accelerated resolution therapy (ART), which integrates eye-movements with mindfulness, breath work, visualization, and somatic grounding techniques. I am committed to life-long learning through ongoing training and research review.
I have worked with clients on a wide range of issues, including
grief and loss
the effects of separation on the family system
I bring a strong background in adult learning and narrative interviewing to my clinical practice. I have worked in the corporate sector for Silicon Valley and Calgary companies, helping organizations and individuals navigate rapid and at times unforeseen changes.
