I am a Clinical Psychologist with 35 years of experience working in hospitals, university and currently only in private practice. I worked overseas in a pediatric oncology and in a Pain Clinic. As the Director of the Psychology Department at the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton, I helped cancer patients and their families; I supervised graduate students and was involved in published research. I achieved the level of Clinical Professor of Palliative Medicine at the University of Alberta. Following my departure from the Cross Cancer Institute, I worked at the University of Alberta Hospital in the Burn and Trauma units.

I developed a keen interest in medically related problems and their psychological impact. I enjoy working with individuals, couples and families. I continue to enjoy supervising Provisional Psychologists. My expertise focuses on Health Psychology, Psycho-oncology, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), depression, grief, anxiety and relationship issues.

I am very flexible and laid back in my style.I am client centered and work with empathy and respect for the client.I individualize the techniques I use to fit the needs and issues of the client. I have a lot of experience working with Physicians.
