North & South LocationView Team
I am a Registered Psychologist and a PhD graduate from Palo Alto University in California. I am trained in providing multiple methods of treatment, including traditional and non-traditional therapeutic modalities. In response to the unique needs of the individual, I utilize my experience to offer Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural therapy techniques, Psychodynamic Therapy (the deeper meaning and understanding of the effect of patterns and history on current life), Humanistic and Feminist style, as well as Embodied Awareness techniques. As a Holistic Psychotherapist, I incorporate all of the techniques I learn to guide you in the connection of mind, heart, body, and spirit.
By utilizing all four of these aspects of the human experience, you are more able to overcome obstacles and challenges in your life and thrive. I am known for my insightful and empowering therapeutic style.
I have provided therapy to individuals and groups since 1998. In 20 years of practice, I have provided psychological services in a variety of treatment settings including private practice, mental health clinics, outpatient and inpatient facilities, community service centres, a specialty program for people who were accused of sexual abuses, a skilled nursing facility for the elderly, the Operational Stress Injury clinic in Calgary, veterans’ hospitals, the National Center for Post-traumatic Stress Disorder in Menlo Park, CA, and Inner Solutions, Inc. in Calgary.
I specialize in treatment of trauma and trauma-related difficulties, such as depression, anxiety, sleep difficulties, and affected relationships. I work with those of you healing personal physical and sexual abuse, as well as veterans recovering from military-related trauma. I am skilled at helping you navigate transitions and find your personal power. My goal is to help you develop a sense of your own power and identity, while improving the relationships in your life. We work together to translate your inspirations and ideas into action that makes your life everything you dream it can be. I am your teacher, your guide, your coach, and your cheerleader. Sometimes I am the "expert" with the knowledge and experience, other times I am a listening, caring ear supporting you in your painful moments. At all times, I am here entirely for you and always on your side.
