I am a Provisional Registered Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists and a member of the Psychologists Association of Alberta. I completed a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology through Yorkville University.
Connecting with others and aiding them in their journey of healing and self-discovery is my passion. I have supported children, teens, and adults working through experiences such as: trauma, grief and loss, depression, anxiety, sexual abuse, relationship issues, eating disorders, career navigation, behaviour issues, codependency, and emotional disturbance.
I believe in building a trusting, collaborative, and mutually respectful relationship with you as I listen to your story. By doing this, I hope to build an environment in which you feel safe. I utilize different therapeutic approaches including Psychodynamic Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and Solution Focused techniques. The approach or combination of approaches I employ will be decided by your unique needs and personality.

Trauma Focused Counselling
Trauma-focused counselling is a form of therapy that is designed to help people who have been traumatized. It is based on the idea that trauma can have a lasting impact on the mind and that the therapist’s role is to help the patient heal these wounds.
Strength-Based Therapy is a type of therapy that focuses on building up the strengths of the patient. It is based on the idea that everyone has strengths and that these strengths can be used to improve the patient’s life.
Somatic therapy is a form of therapy that focuses on the body. It is based on the idea that our thoughts, feelings, and behavior are all related to our physical body. The goal of somatic therapy is to understand the physical causes of mental illness.
Prolonged Exposure Therapy is an effective treatment for PTSD. It has been shown to reduce the symptoms of PTSD, including flashbacks, avoidance, and numbing. It can also help to improve functioning and quality of life.
Positive psychology is the scientific study of happiness and well-being. Positive psychologists are interested in studying the factors that contribute to human happiness and well-being, and in using this information to help people lead more fulfilling lives.
The goal of person-centered therapy is to help clients to develop a more positive view of themselves and their lives. Person-centered therapy is an evidence-based counseling approach that has been shown to be effective in treating a variety of mental health disorders, including depression, anxiety, and eating disorders.
