Approach to Counselling:

My approach to counselling is action-based and focused on helping my clients develop practical strategies to make changes. Rather than solely focusing on what isn’t working in their lives, I aim to provide specific, actionable steps that clients can take to improve their mental health and well-being.

The underlying foundation for my work draws from three types of therapy: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). In session, I typically implement a three-pronged approach. I begin by identifying what drives you, your values, and the life you want for yourself.

Once we have a picture of this, we may implement techniques to identify the narratives you tell yourself about perceived barriers, difficulties, or anything else which may hold you back. Once we have developed this level of insight, we utilize a hands-on, active approach, highlighting our therapy's proactive aspect, which I admit is my favourite. Here, we develop strategies to regulate emotions, increase assertiveness, and address relationship conflicts through interpersonal effectiveness.

 

Education and Credentials:

  • Registered Psychologist (#7124) with the College of Alberta Psychologists
  • Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from the University of Puget Sound (Tacoma, Washington)
  • Master of Arts in Mental Health Counseling from New York University (New York City, New York)
  • Doctorate of Clinical Psychology from the California School of Professional Psychology (San Diego, California)

 

Background / Experience:

I have ten years of experience working in mental healthcare settings. I graduated with my doctorate in clinical psychology (PsyD) in 2022. I completed a doctoral internship at the St. Louis Veteran’s Health Administration Hospital, where I worked exclusively with US military Veterans. After completing my internship, I embarked on a post-doctorate experience to receive specialized training in evidence-based treatment and assessment.

 

Services Offered:

  • Counseling services (adolescents, ages 13-17)
  • Counseling services (adults)

 

Who I Work With:

I currently work with teens (ages 13-17) and adults for counselling. I have specialized training and experience working with the following presenting concerns:

 

Teen Counselling Services:
  • Adjustment to life transitions:
    Changes in family dynamics, transitions between grades.
  • Social-related challenges and issues with peers:
    Bullying, isolation, difficulty connecting with friends, etc.
  • School-related issues:
    Perfectionism, difficulty managing academic pressure.
  • Sense of self:
    Struggles with self-esteem, self-worth and self-confidence. 
  • Identity-related exploration:
    Exploring questions pertaining to gender identity and sexual orientation.
  • Substance use
  • Anxiety
  • Depression

 

Adult Counselling Services:
  • Life transitions:
    Relationship changes (endings/beginnings), career changes (hirings/firings), and life changes (new medical diagnoses, births of children).
  • Substance use disorders:
    I enjoy working with individuals facing substance-use concerns or those with family members experiencing substance-related difficulties. 
  • Grief/bereavement
  • Caregiver-related concerns:
    Including burnout about the care of a family member or loved one and/or the stressors that come with navigating long-term care-related difficulties. 
  • Relationship Challenges:
    This includes romantic and platonic relationships, including navigating challenging interactions with family members, parents, children, etc.
    Learning how to establish mountain boundaries within relationships.

    Specifically, using food to cope with negative emotions or life events.
  • LGBTQ+ related themes:
    Exploring sexual orientation or gender identity, experiences with stigma and acceptance.

As a counselling professional, I believe in transparency regarding my areas of expertise and limitations. While I am trained to provide individual counselling services, I refer clients seeking services for young children (younger than age 13), couples, and families to other specialized therapists. I am also happy to provide recommendations for professionals who specialize in the following areas:

  • Eating disorders (anorexia, orthorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder)
  • Attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) treatment
  • Work-related injury cases
  • Cases involving legal proceedings or court-related cases
  • Brain injury or concussions
  • Panic disorder
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorders
  • Phobias
  • Personality disorders
  • Psychosis

 

About Me:

I am relatively new to Edmonton, Alberta, and Canada, and while I have not been here for an extended period, I love my time here thus far. On weekends, I enjoy trying out different culinary experiences (how have I never had a green onion cake or donair before?!), festivals (folk fest was a highlight of the summer) and exploring numerous dog-friendly establishments in the city. When not in session, you may find me exploring vintage clothing stores, volunteering with local harm reduction agencies, or picnic-ing along the River Valley. I’ve also recently started exploring the hobby of refurbishing old furniture, so you can find me at a local hardware store near you!
