About

In my private practice, I provide therapy to the general public, Calgary Police Service & other First Responders who have experienced traumatic events of different kinds. I routinely work with individuals & couples facing a range of mental health and adjustment concerns. Some of these have included post-traumatic stress disorder, anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, relationship issues, stress management, grief & loss, anger/aggression, & other emotional & behavioral issues. I am also regularly engaged to speak at community-based events on topics such as trauma, resiliency, work-life balance, & non-verbal communication/behavior.
I am committed to using evidence-based treatments in my practice. This includes Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Prolonged Exposure & Accelerated Resolution Therapy. I regularly employ mindfulness based techniques to assist with anxiety & use the Gottman Therapy approach for couples experiencing relationship difficulties.
I believe that effective counselling fundamentally involves working both with the mind and the manifestation of emotional experiences stored in the body. Every client has a unique path to healing and emotional processing. I provide a safe and supportive environment for clients to achieve their therapeutic goals.
