Description

I am a clinical psychologist and provide psychological treatment to adults, including individuals, couples, and groups. I also provide supervision to mental health clinicians.

I am trained in emotion-focused, cognitive-behavioural, dialectical behavioural, and mindfulness approaches. In addition, I have trained in Behavioural Sleep Medicine and CBT for Insomnia. Together we will choose the approach that is most beneficial for the issues you want to work on.

My therapeutic style is down-to-earth and informal while my work remains grounded in science and clear goals.
