My areas of expertise

I provide individual therapy to adults with anxiety, depression, grief, and adjustment difficulties, particularly in the context of chronic health issues.

My therapy approach primarily centres on cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT). Depending on individuals’ needs, I integrate other evidence-based modalities such as mindfulness-based approaches, motivational interviewing, and dialectical behaviour therapy. I also provide cognitive behavioural therapy for insomnia (CBT-I) for clients with persistent sleep difficulties.

In my clinical work, I am committed to providing interventions that are well-supported by scientific evidence. I strive to create an open and supportive therapeutic environment, while taking a collaborative approach that integrates clients’ strengths and individual perspectives.


I am a Registered Psychologist in the province of British Columbia.

I completed my doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario. In addition to my private practice at Changeways Clinic, I work as a Psychologist at GF Strong Rehabilitation Centre where I provide assessment, intervention, and consultation to individuals in the context of major injuries and neurological disorders.

I have published in the areas of brain injury, ADHD, and substance use.
