About

I am a registered psychologist with a Master of Counselling degree in Counselling Psychology and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology. 

I am a member of The College of Alberta Psychologists and The Psychologists’ Association of Alberta.

My practise is in Country Hills, Calgary AB.

I believe in approaching mental health holistically and experientially. I work from a neurobiologically and trauma-informed perspective. I utilize body-centred approaches, emotion-focused approaches, and mindfulness in my work with clients. I believe in helping clients develop self-awareness and a deeper understanding of the more unconscious feelings and beliefs that influence thoughts and behaviours. In doing this, we are able to address the root of the issue to create lasting change to your mental health.

 

I also have a special interest in ecopsychology, which examines how our relationship with nature influences our experience and mental health.

I am LGBTQ2S+ affirmative. My office is a safe space for everyone.

Please email me or visit my online calendar to schedule an appointment.

Psychodynamic Approach

I draw from a psychodynamic theoretical orientation in approaching mental health. This means taking into consideration not only what is happening in your life now, but also what has happened in the past to influence your current attitudes, beliefs, and responses.  One of my goals is to assist you in becoming self-aware, so that you can develop a more conscious way of coping with difficulties.


By becoming aware of your emotions and learning to express them in your work with me, you can begin to heal past hurts, tolerate difficult emotions, and use your emotions to help you lead an authentic, connected life. My office is a place where you can practice feeling and expressing emotions that you might normally suppress or deny.

My areas of practise include:

 

  • Trauma and PTSD

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Relationships and attachment

  • Self-esteem

  • Stress

  • Sexuality and gender

  • Race and racism

  • Identity 

  • Life transitions

  • Grief and loss

  • Spirituality

  • Disaffiliation from high demand religions
