Welcome! It would be my privilege to hold some space for you and to support you through further exploration of the challenges you may be facing.
I hold a Master of Social Work Degree from Dalhousie University and a Bachelor of Social Work Degree from the University of Victoria. I am registered with the Alberta College of Social Workers with authorization to perform psychosocial intervention. I am a member of CASW (Canadian Association of Social Workers) and a member of EMDR Canada and EMDRIA (EMDR International Association). I have been a practicing Social Worker in Alberta for over 20 years. I have training in Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Ego State Therapy. I am also Certified in EMDR and specialize in PTSD and trauma work. I work within a framework of task-centered and problem solving models. This includes a strong focus on client centered practice from a strength based perspective. I pull from multiple theories of practice including biopsychosocial theory, systems theory and social learning theory when determining the best therapeutic approach for successful client outcomes.
