About

Finding lasting relief from difficulties like depression, anxiety, trauma, or medically unexplained physical symptoms (e.g., IBS, tension headaches, or pain) can be difficult. Perhaps you have been trying to address your issues via coping skills, self-help books, or by accessing various health care providers. If you continually feel stuck, are in pain, or are confused about why your symptoms aren’t improving, you might be ready to look into the underlying emotional factors contributing to your symptoms. Together, we can understand and address the roots of your problems so that you can stop suffering and start living.
I specialize in psychodynamic therapy from an Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP) framework. ISTDP is an evidence-based, emotionally oriented, advanced treatment that looks beyond symptom management/coping to target underlying, automatic self-defeating patterns that contribute to emotional and physical symptoms.
I am a registered psychologist with a PhD in Counselling Psychology from the University of Alberta. I have advanced training and expertise in treating adults with a variety of mental & physical health issues. Outside of private practice, I have enjoyed working with individuals in acute psychiatry (inpatient), as well as community-based mental health clinics.
