Are you looking for a caring and experienced therapist on the South side of Edmonton? 

My therapeutic approach is grounded in empathy, respect for diversity (including LGBTQ+), and evidence-based practice. I use cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), solution-focused brief therapy, and other therapeutic techniques.

I welcome adults and adolescents aged 16+ who are experiencing:

  • difficulties with adjusting to the pandemic
  • anxiety, chronic worry, phobias, panic attacks
  • stress, insomnia
  • depression (including post-partum mood and anxiety disorders)
  • eating disorders (requires coordination with your doctor or psychiatrist)
  • OCD/obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • skin picking and hair pulling (trichotillomania)
  • grief following a loved one's death, a personal loss, or an illness diagnosis
  • breakups, separation, divorce, blended family adjustment
  • difficulties with life stage transitions such as new parenthood or retirement
  • PTSD/post-traumatic stress disorder (I use Prolonged Exposure and EMDR)
  • and various other concerns - please feel free to contact me with questions

Please note that currently, I am not providing: couples' therapy, psychological assessments, or counselling for work-related injury (WCB) cases. I'm also unable to see teachers who work at Strathcona or Avalon schools.
