I am a clinical psychologist who works with adults and couples of all ages, genders, sexual identities, backgrounds, and relationship formats. I am passionate about helping people through many types of difficult experiences including anxiety, sadness and depression, emotion dysregulation, stressful life transitions, identity development, and relationship strain. I am also a sex therapist, with specialized training in helping people who are experiencing difficulties related to their sex lives (e.g., desire, arousal, erection, orgasm, atypical sexual interests, non-traditional relationship formats). Finally, I am a WPATH trained clinician who offers Trans Health Readiness assessment services to adults seeking gender affirming surgeries.
My therapeutic approach integrates scientific evidence from several therapeutic frameworks (e.g., cognitive behavioural, dialectical behaviour, mindfulness-based, emotionally-focused, motivational, and solutions-focused) with my own clinical expertise and each client’s preferences. For me, each client is the expert on their own life and a strong therapeutic relationship is the foundation of meaningful change. I am originally from Newfoundland and obtained a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of New Brunswick. I am firmly dedicated to continued growth and education – I believe in growing along with (and often because of) my clients.
