Biography

I am a Registered Psychologist in both Alberta and Northwest Territories, and a Masters trained Marital and Family Therapist.  I have over 30 years of experience in the helping professions, all of it working with children, youth, families, and organizations.  In my therapeutic world I work from a Bowenian Family Systems perspective, and bring in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Eye Movement Desensitizing and Reprocessing, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Mindfulness, and other pertinent interventions as required given the nature of the difficulties. My clients often present with an array of complex issues, and while these can become longer-term therapeutic relationships, I also work well with short-term, solution-focused strategies to quickly move toward healing and resolution.

In my corporate work, I have training and experience in Executive and Educational Coaching, Critical Incident Stress Management, and have provided extensive training and support to a variety of corporate clientele on a number of topics such as vicarious traumatization, compassion fatigue, working with difficult children and youth, and other topics of interest and need. I have extensive experience working with individuals as well as groups, large and small.
