I hold a Master of Arts in Clinical Psychology from the Adler School of Professional Psychology. My Bachelor of Arts is in Psychology from the University of British Columbia.
I have a wide array of experience due to my interest in investigating problems and their influences on our lives. I have experience working with individuals, couples and families with different life experiences. I have worked with children and families in an effort to support their desire to raise healthy and happy children. I currently work with adults struggling with chronic pain/illness, addiction, and mental health concerns. In addition to my work with adults, I work with youth related concerns. Some of the problems investigated in my work with youth are: addiction, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, anger, criminal behaviour, bullying, sexual identity, self-esteem, trauma, chronic illness, and anger.
In my experience I have learned that problems do not live in isolation. Often, a single problem can have more problems lingering around. Depression can bring anxiety, chronic illness can bring depression, bullying can invite addiction and a lowered self-esteem, and so on.
Given this, and my interest in investigating problems and the ways in which people overcome them, I strive to continue gaining experience and knowledge in how different problems operate and influence lives. I have a passion to learn and continue developing my clinical skills in order to offer the best support possible.
