In particular, I work from models of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy.
I am not currently accepting new clients. I believe making the decision to come to therapy is a hopeful action. You may be feeling stuck and finding that anxiety or depression are keeping you from living life in a way that provides real purpose and meaning. I have specialized training and interest in working with individuals who struggle to manage emotions, whether that be that emotions feel particularly overwhelming and out of control, or whether you are more commonly feeling numb or disconnected. I also have a special interest in the difficulties faced by teen girls and young adult women, especially shame and self-criticism.

Feeling stuck? Over it? Ready to focus on wellness and well-being in your life? If you are looking for a safe, compassionate, accepting space to explore historical and present day troubles and concerns this could be it. I have had the honour of accompanying people on their journey to wellness for over 30 years, and am always inspired by the strength and resilience of the human spirit. My work has taken me to a number of different settings, including residential treatment centers for behavioural and emotional difficulties in children and addictions in young adults, First Nations communities, schools and private practice.

My passion for helping others started with working in homeless shelters. This experience instilled a passion to hear people’s stories and recognize each person as unique and valuable. One of the most difficult times that has shaped much of my journey as a therapist is my own journey being diagnosed with a critical illness near the end of my graduate training in 2014. This was one of those phone calls that I would have never imagined. It is through this challenging circumstance I was able to grow as an individual in walking through my own journey of healing, benefitting from some of the same evidence based practices I can now u

Supporting others begins with the presence of a safe space of openness and acceptance that facilitates a client’s innate yearning for healing, growth, and self actualization. My own journey has led me to the joy, mystery, and wonder of self discovery, the healing experience of healthy relationships, and finding meaning and purpose in life. The enjoyment in my work as a therapist comes from guiding clients on their journey to discover what brings them joy and to help them reconnect to their inner resources – their strengths, wholeness, peace, deeper nature, and internal guidance and wisdom.

Acceptance and Commitment (ACT) Counsellors
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) is a type of psychotherapy that helps you accept the difficulties that come with life. ACT is a form of mindfulness based therapy, theorizing that greater well-being can be attained by overcoming negative thoughts and feelings. Essentially, ACT looks at your character traits and behaviours to assist you in reducing avoidant coping styles. ACT also addresses your commitment to making changes, and what to do about it when you can't stick to your goals.

If you're looking for ACT therapy in Edmonton or for an Edmonton ACT counsellor these professionals provide acceptance and commitment therapy, ACT group therapy, ACT therapy, and acceptance commitment therapy. They include ACT therapists, ACT psychologists, ACT psychotherapists and ACT counsellors.
