I received my Bachelor of Science degree (major in Psychology, minor in
Criminology) from the University of Toronto in 1990. I received the Master of Education degree (Counselling Psychology) from
the University of Alberta in 1998 and was Registered as a Psychologist in the province of Alberta in 2000. From 1990 through
2000 I worked in several positions that mainly involved assisting adults and adolescents with sexual offending behaviours,
as well as with survivors of sexual, physical and emotional abuse. I
also worked as an educational consultant, completing assessments
and consulting in schools providing support to teachers,
students, and parents.
a Registered Psychologist in private practice, my focus has shifted
somewhat: I continue to work with survivors of childhood abuse, as well
as with people who have addictive or problematic sexual behaviours.
However, I no longer work with people who are sexually aggressive.
Since 1995 I have also completed many assessments on children and
adults in the school system, focused on learning difficulties,
behavioural disorders, and emotional functioning.
I enjoy professional presentations and have led
workshops on learning disabilities, ADHD, personality disorders,
behavioural management within the classroom, and sexual development
in children. I am also a Sessional Lecturer at Concordia University
College of Alberta, where regularly I teach courses in Introductory Group Therapy
and Human Sexual Behaviour. I have also taught Introductory
Psychology, Ethics, and Introduction to Personality.
I am currently a professional member of the College of Alberta
Psychologists and Psychologists’ Association of Alberta.
