Therapeutic Approach:

In therapy, I work from several related models:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), a type of therapy that looks at the relationship between thoughts, feelings, and behaviours.
  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), an active form of therapy where clients explore what is important to them and learn skills to handle difficult thoughts and feelings more effectively
  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), an integrative psychotherapy approach that has been extensively researched and proven effective for the treatment of trauma
  • Brainspotting Therapy (BSP), which is a therapeutic process that uses specific points in the client’s visual field to assess unprocessed trauma in the subcortical brain.

Clinical Experiences:

I completed my clinical internship in Saskatoon, SK, working with both children and adults in health and community settings. I taught at the university level and worked in a university student counselling setting. I have had ongoing contact with the Canadian Forces and was previously employed in a Mental Health Center working with military members. I have been part of the Centrepointe Team since 2003.
