About

I am a Registered Provisional psychologist with a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology from the University of Alberta. My approach to therapy emphasizes the importance of confronting our painful emotions and experiences from a place of safety, curiosity, and honesty. I work with individuals and couples as well as teens and youth. I also have a special interest in working with men. I believe that men are often under resourced when it comes to accessing, expressing, and understanding their emotions, often leading to painful, yet avoidable, experiences.
I rely on an integrative approach to therapy that combines elements of CBT, ACT, DBT, EFT and EMDR. I work with clients around anxiety, depression, grief and loss, anger management, self-esteem issues, stress management, marital distress and communication concerns, as well as emotional regulation, mindfulness skills training, distress tolerance, and trauma.
Through therapy, you will have the opportunity to develop your individual strengths and foster personal growth. Although therapy can be a terrifying prospect for many, my goal is to provide you with a safe haven where you can explore your struggles without fear of being judged or rejected. I welcome the opportunity to work with you. See you soon!
