Sometimes the waters in life can get a little rough -- or we get caught up in the shallows. It can be tough to navigate on your own. Maybe bringing a good co-navigator on deck can help with setting a clearer course and steering toward calmer waters.
I am a registered psychologist based in northwest Calgary. Let me help you through the storm. I offer counselling and support for adolescents, adults, couples, and families. I provide supports for concerns including stress, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, grief and loss, relationships, addictions, and trauma.
I've worked in primary care settings directly with physicians, clinics, and patients. I've provided client supports in single-session counselling organizations. I've developed and facilitated groups supporting with addictions, stress, anxiety management, depression, parenting, and abuse. I've supervised psychology interns working with multiple university programs. I've conducted parenting assessments and supervised both parent and children's groups oriented toward improved family relationships. I'm currently completing my dissertation toward a PsyD degree.
My approach to counselling is premised on an unwavering confidence in the strengths and internal resources you bring to our collaboration -- and your ability to access these strengths and resources in moving toward goals you identify for yourself.
My orientation is primarily solution-focused and narrative, as well as cognitive behavioural theory. I have specialized training in EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing) for trauma and trauma-related concerns, in clinical hypnosis, and in Radical Exposure Tapping. I am a Certified Sex Addiction Therapist (CSAT) and Certified Multiple Addiction Therapist (CMAT) with IITAP, and I also have certification as a Rapid Resolution Therapist (RRT). I am an approved FNIHB provider for treaty-status clients.
I offer daytime and evening appointments -- including Saturdays. I also offer a variety of payment options including cash, cheque, interac transfers, and Paypal payment. Psychology services are supported by multiple insurance providers -- and they can be submitted as a deductible medical expense on your annual tax return.
Call to consult. Together, we can decide where and how you choose to launch and set sail -- and what supports you need on board. You're the captain at the helm of your own ship. That's exciting. Imagine where you might travel with an experienced crew and solid support on deck with you. I'm not afraid of storms, and the sea can seem less daunting when you're not alone.
The sea is made for sailing. Choose change. Make waves.
