I am a Clinical Psychologist with 35 years of experience working in
hospitals, university and currently only in private practice.
Prior to my Ph.D, I earned a Bachelor’s and a Master’s degree from McGill University.
As part of my doctoral training, and after graduation from the University of Alberta,
I spent two years as a doctoral intern at the Montreal General Hospital.
I have also worked overseas in a Paediatric Oncology unit and in a Pain
Clinic. Then I was recruited to be the Director of the Psychology Department at
the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton,
AB. As well as helping cancer
patients and their families, I supervised doctoral students and interns and was
involved in many research projects. I was cross-appointed to the University of Alberta where I taught and supervised
students and I continue to supervise Provisional Psychologists. I achieved the level of Clinical Professor of Palliative medicine. Following
my departure from the Cross Cancer Institute, I worked at the University of
Alberta Hospital in the Burn and Trauma units.
I have expertise working with individuals and couples with a variety of issues, including: medically related problems, grief therapy, anxiety/depression, PTSD and couple therapy.
