* Rare Disease/ Chronic Illness Therapist & Trauma Specialist* Everyone deserves safety, trust, and hope. These build the foundation for our belief in ourselves, connection with others, and help us to live a meaningful life. Stress, transitions, health diagnosis, and unexpected challenges can uproot us. When that happens it’s my privilege to create a safe, grounding connection to help you find your way back to a meaningful life. Through a combination of trauma-informed and evidence-based counselling interventions, I provide a soft place to land, where you are seen, heard, and are safe to speak your truth on the road to healing.

Living with chronic illness , disability, or neurodivergence is hard. Getting through the overwhelm of everyday life feels impossible. You're starting to feel like all you think about is your condition and everything it has taken away from you - work, hobbies, sleep, relationships. Your family and friends don’t get it. They try to help and probably mean well, but sometimes the dismissive way they say things makes you feel worse. You try to hide your symptoms to seem “normal” but inside, you feel like you might break.

I have a special interest in working with individuals and their caregivers who are at various stages of their health journey – pre/post pregnancy, maternal health, new diagnosis, chronic illness , terminal illness or with those wondering about end-of-life planning.

I have a growing specialization in health psychology, with a focus on chronic illness , psychosocial oncology and adjustment and rehabilitation following neurological/physical injury.
I see the therapy room as a place where people discover that "home" is an internal state. Trust is difficult, and it can feel like an immeasurable risk to explore the most vulnerable of spaces: your innermost thoughts and feelings. I seek to understand my clients' experiences and see the world as you do. Not all clients are alike, and I aim to tailor my approach to the needs and worldviews of each client. I describe my approach to therapy as integrative with a collaborative stance and an emphasis (where appropriate) on interpersonal and existential issues.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Calgary are psychologists, licensed counselors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualized treatment.

Services offered, education and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Calgary then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.

How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Calgary, or Child Psychologists in Calgary.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Calgary psychologists specializing in EMDR.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Calgary specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
