About

Life can feel overwhelming at times and it's important to realize you are not alone. I am a registered psychologist who provides assessment and treatment services to adults and seniors with mild to severe mental health issues—specifically, depression, anxiety, chronic pain, self-esteem, life transition, addiction issues, bipolar and psychotic disorders, as well as posttraumatic stress among MVA survivors. My work conducting psychological assessments offers another angle in promoting self-exploration and identifying opportunities for growth. I also provide vocational counselling in the context of life and career transitions.
I focus on cognitive-behavioural and solution-focused approaches and adapt DBT and ACT concepts when appropriate. I conduct psychological, cognitive, vocational, and disability assessments for government organizations and private practice clients. I have 26 years of mental health treatment and assessment experience within both public and private settings.
I believe everyone can learn and grow but we can get sidetracked by negative or unrealistic thoughts that cause distress and result in problems. I welcome the chance to help you reach your full potential. I know that finding the right therapist can be a challenging process. I offer a free 15-minute phone consultation to ensure I am a good fit for you.
