My education and clinical training have afforded me diverse opportunities. I have a PhD in Clinical Psychology from Lakehead University and a Masters in Gerontology from the University of Waterloo. I welcomed the opportunity in 2003 to return to my home province as a Pre-Doctoral Intern at the QEII Health Sciences Centre. Since beginning my journey as a Clinical Psychologist, I have been fortunate to have worked in a variety of settings, including a Mental Health Day Treatment program for individuals with severe and persistent mental illness, a Mental Health Outpatient program, a Pain Management clinic, and a University Counselling Centre. I have been in Private Practice since 2005.
I use empirically-validated approaches to therapy and am continually updating my skills and knowledge of the research. Although I have strong foundations in Cognitive-Behavioural and Mindfulness Strategies, I tailor the treatment to the specific needs of the client. I believe the benefits of therapy depend on a strong therapeutic alliance grounded in trust, authenticity, and connectedness. I have a down-to-earth, genuine style and it is important that my clients feel comfortable and free of judgment. I believe it is a privilege to be witness to my clients’ journeys through self-discovery and transformation. They have been my greatest teachers.
