About My Practice

I have 25 years experience working with clients in both clinical and hospital settings. I offer individual psychological therapy to adults and seniors using evidence based approaches. I use cognitive behavioural and interpersonal dynamic therapies and include mindfulness-based strategies.  

I have completed the Occupational Awareness Training in Treating First Responder Trauma (Silver endorsement--BC Professional Fire Fighter Association and Bronze endorsement--Sask Professional Fire Fighter Association).  I am also a certified B.O.S. (Before Operational Stress) clinician.

Individual psychological therapy sessions by video now available to individuals living in Saskatchewan.  Research has demonstrated that mental health treatment using video platforms can work just as well as in-person therapy.  Advantages to video sessions include the convenience (no travel time or transportation costs) as well as comfort and privacy of meetings from your home or workplace. Video sessions improve access for individuals living in rural or remote locations.

Cognitive behavioural therapy assumes that people can become more aware of their thoughts, understand how thoughts influence behaviours, and modify thoughts and behaviours to improve functioning.

Interpersonal dynamic approaches examining the connection between current difficulties and relationships and repetitive patterns of relating that can be traced back to childhood.

Mindfulness-based approaches involve the development of intentional, non-judgmental acceptance and awareness of our thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations, and surrounding environment.

Is Psychological Therapy For You?

I work with clients to address most mental health issues including but not limited to:

  • Operational stress injuries experienced by public safety personnel (e.g., police, fire, paramedic, 911 dispatch, correctional officers) or military personnel
  • Depression/Mood disorders
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder
  • Anxiety (including obsessive compulsive disorder, social anxiety, phobias, and panic).
  • Trauma experienced as a child or adult
  • Relationship difficulties
  • Aging issues
  • Grief and loss
  • Chronic pain and illness management
  • Coping with end of life issues
  • Job stress/burnout
  • Stress management

What if things aren't THAT bad?
You do not have to have a "serious problem" to benefit from the services of a professionally trained psychologist.  Psychological therapy is also useful to enhance psychological well-being.  Therapy can help you thrive in your career, improve relationships, better understand the challenges you face, live more comfortably with your personal situation, understand your purpose in life, recognize your own strengths or talents, understand why things bother you and what you can do about it, or define and reach wellness goals (e.g., fitness or healthier diet goals).
