Engaging in therapy can be an overwhelming and vulnerable experience. The right psychologist for you is someone you can trust, who listens to your story and responds to your individual/family needs. Throughout my time as a psychologist, I have come to recognize that each individual and family is unique. As a psychologist, my role is to create that space for you to open up, and also to provide support and direction. I work with you where you are at and offer choices for next steps.

Areas I offer support include:

  • Eating Disorders
  • Body Image Concerns
  • Women’s Health
  • Life Transitions
  • Parenting
  • Family Communication
  • Trauma
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Addiction

I work with pre-adolescents (10+), adolescents, adults and families with an emphasis on family systems work when applicable.

My Therapeutic Approach is to focus on YOU

Self-discovery and healing are a journey. I operate from a client-centered and collaborative approach to support your healing journey using my psychological training and experience and your experience of being you. This includes evidence-based interventions and strategies that have shown to be most helpful for the challenges you are currently struggling with. Specific therapy approaches I use in my practice include:

ART is a form of psychotherapy used to treat trauma. This intervention supports individuals in moving beyond the distressing memories and  images caused by traumatic experiences.

Accelerated Resolution Therapy – Treating Trauma

CBT is a psychological intervention, based in science, that has shown to be effective in helping people to change their thoughts (also called cognitions) and their actions (behaviours). It focuses on the here and now and utilizes strategies that support individuals in making  changes in their present lives. 

DBT is a psychological intervention, based in science,  that has shown to be effective in helping people to understand and manage challenges related to relationships, emotional and cognitive functioning, and overall distress. It operates from the premise that all feelings and experiences are valid (acceptance), but that current ways to manage these feelings and experiences are no longer working but can improve (change).  

EMDR is a form of psychotherapy used to treat trauma. It focuses on alleviating the distress associated with traumatic memories.

More about EMDR

FBT is an evidence-based, manualized treatment, which has been proven to be effective in helping young people recover from Anorexia Nervosa. FBT empowers parents to take a lead role in their child’s recovery until their child is able to do this on their own. Clinicians who practice FBT guide, coach and consult with parents as they work towards this goal. 

Family Systems therapy views the family as a unit and believes that individuals are inseparable from their relationships. Family systems interventions work with the entire family to support positive and healthy change.

Mindfulness is learning to be in the present moment without judgement. Mindfulness has been shown to effective for a wide variety of psychological issues and to improve overall psychological health.

Motivational interviewing focuses on helping individuals change their behaviours by exploring and resolving ambivalence about making such changes.

Narrative therapy allows individuals and families to see the problem as separate from the person who is struggling with the problem. In doing so, this starts to create space between the person and the problem and allows for other interpretations to occur.

A Person-Centred approach identifies that every individual strives for and has the ability to participate in their own personal growth and change. 

Somatic Therapy operates from the premise that the mind and body are connected, and that past and present stress impact the central nervous system. By developing an awareness of how the mind and body are impacted and working with both, people can move towards healing.

A Strength-Based Approach involves the individual and therapist working together to identify the strengths and abilities already present within the individual and that these can be fostered to create a sense of purpose and happiness for the individual.

*Please note these are simplified explanations of what these therapeutic interventions are and what is involved. For more specific and detailed explanations, please  speak to a professional who has been trained in these interventions.
