I began my journey to becoming a Registered Psychologist in Alberta in Manitoba where I completed my honours undergraduate degree in Psychology. I then pushed and challenged myself to move to Grand Forks North Dakota to attend the University of North Dakota to get my Master's degree in Counselling Psychology. I worked in Crookston Minnesota with adults struggling with severe and persistent mental illness.
I then returned to Canada and moved to Kindersley Saskatchewan where I worked with children, adolescents, adults and couples. My work varied from stress, marriage issues, parental neglect, crisis management, trauma, developing seniors programs - you name it!
In 2016 my family and I relocated to Medicine Hat and it is here where I have opened my practice.
My goal in providing therapy is to help reduce the stigma around mental health and actually getting therapy. Seeing a psychologist should be as normal as taking your car to a mechanic.
Through my career I have taken trainings in trauma, CBT, mindfulness, suicide, play-therapy, FASD, the brain, schizophrenia, and critical incident stress management - just to name a few.
