Caring, compassionate and confidential services in a calm, supportive and safe space in which you can reflect on your situation, life or goals, resolve to make a change or try something different, and renew your relationship with yourself, your dreams, or with others.

You're going through a hard time right now. Maybe you're struggling to get through each day. Maybe you're struggling to make a decision in your life. Perhaps you don't feel like yourself and you wonder what happened. But you've made a decision that something has to change. You're ready now to start feeling better. You're ready to move forward. And THAT takes courage. I believe that we – all of us – have within us the capacity to make change. I provide confidential, caring and compassionate counselling/psychotherapy to help you as you deal with challenges you may be experiencing to your psychological, emotional, mental or personal well-being.
I am Registered Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists in the province of Alberta and I currently practice in both Edmonton and St. Albert. I bring over a decade of professional counselling experience, have completed a Ph.D. in Counselling Psychology from the University of Alberta, which is one of only four such programs accredited by the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA), and a Masters of Arts in Counselling Psychology with the Adler School of Professional Psychology in Chicago, IL.

I have completed additional training in Compassion Fatigue with the Traumatology Institute in Toronto, ON and am a Certified Compassion Fatigue Specialist via the Green Cross Academy of Traumatology in Minnesota, US. In addition to my clinical work, I have taught courses in Psychology and Educational Psychology at both the University of Alberta and Grant MacEwan University , respectively, and co-facilitated seminars in Patient-Centred Care at the University of Alberta’s Faculty of Medicine.

At this time I work primarily with individuals (adults and seniors) and with groups. At this time I do not work with couples but hope to add services for couples in the future.
I am committed to creating and maintaining a calm, supportive and safe environment in which you, as the client, can    

reflect on your situation, life or goals

resolve to make a change or try something different, and

renew your relationship with yourself, your dreams, or with others

Reflect. Resolve. Renew.
