Brief Personal Statement

I am a registered psychotherapist, who works with individuals and couples, and families. I have over 20 years experience as an officer with the Canadian military in operational environments. I help individuals (16 years of age and older), couples and families work through problems and issues. My therapeutic goal is to assist clients to be heard and validated, to empower clients to discover and develop their unique strengths, and support clients in the resolution of issues or conflicts.

Individual Practice

Practice Approach

I have a special interest in assisting current or retired military personnel, first responders and their families who have been effected by work related stress, personal trauma, PTSD, loss and grief. I understand the challenges individuals, couples, and families face with operations, deployment and reintegration into the family and community.

As your therapist, I am  compassionate in assisting individuals, couples or families understand and explore issues associated with sexual and/or gender identity and related challenges they may face. I also work with trauma, including sexual trauma in childhood and adulthood, post traumatic stress, depression, anxiety and anger.

I provide services under the supervision of Augustine Meier, Ph.D, C. Psych and Shelley Briscoe-Dimock, Ph.D, RP, RMFT.
