I completed my Masters and Doctorate degrees in clinical psychology at Simon Fraser University as well as additional doctoral training at The University of Manitoba. I offer treatment for concerns such as low self-esteem, depression, anxiety and stress management, grief, procrastination and motivation, phobias, relationship difficulties, family issues, anger management, assertiveness, LGBT -related issues, and computer / Internet addiction.
I have worked in hospitals, forensic settings, psychiatric institutions, community services, universities, counselling centres, private clinics, and I am the owner of Green Leaf Psychological Services in Halifax.
When choosing a Psychologist one of the most important things to consider is the “fit” between you and your therapist. Do you trust your Psychologist? Do you feel respected and listened to? Do you actually ‘like’ meeting with him or her? Therefore, for a sense of my style, here is my take on therapy: I believe that developing hope, finding purpose, and feeling in control of your life are extremely important factors in personal growth and overall well-being.
My therapeutic orientation is Solution-Focused with Cognitive-Behavioural elements wrapped in a friendly, Client-Centered approach. I assist clients in identifying clear, attainable goals for personal change and use empirically validated methods to help achieve these goals. However, I believe that this work is only possible when clients experience therapy as warm, non-judgmental, respectful and supportive.
