Hello and Welcome!

I am a registered psychologist in the province of Alberta and I feel fortunate to do the work I do. Throughout my 11 years of clinical experience, I have had the opportunity to help various individuals, couples and families live more satisfying lives. In my work, I use a creative and mindful approach to assist individuals and couples in working through personal obstacles and identifying the factors that often lead to frustration and a feeling of being stuck. My commitment is to understand you and assist you in developing techniques that will create preferred experiences in your life.

Main Areas of Specializations:
  • Couple's Counselling - communication, trust issues, pre-marital counselling, couple’s counselling with one, intimacy and sexual desire
  • Personal Growth and Developing a Sense of Self - Understanding and addressing what is in the way of you living the life you want to live, the art of self-confrontation
  • Parent and Adult Child Relationship - Working through relational challenges between a parent and an adult child
  • Parenting - Help and coaching on how to address challenging times with your child and adolescent
  • Faith Transition - Addressing the impact of leaving a religion you grew up in (e.g., loss of community and building a new one, interactions with family members who are still part of the religion, parenting, inter-religious marriages)

I also address the following:
  • Anxiety
  • Stress
  • Depression
  • Eating disorder
  • Self-esteem
  • Anger management and regulation of emotions
  • Family counselling

My Approach in Counselling:
 My process of counseling is tailored to your own personal needs and experience. Together we can:
  • Build a therapeutic relationship where you feel trust and safe to share your most personal issues
  • Address your needs, your story, your truth
  • Facilitate an understanding of your concerns and experience
  • Identify the missing elements and limiting beliefs that often lead to a feeling of being stuck
  • Explore, develop and experience ways and techniques that will expand beliefs, create preferred experiences and open up the possibilities of change
  • Develop practical tools to integrate your work in counseling into your everyday life
I invite you to visit my website for further information. I look forward to meeting you!
