I am educated and trained in a broad range of physical and mental health approaches, and I have over 20 years of experience as a healthcare professional. After a degree in human nutrition and a brief foray into medical school, I trained as a dietitian and pursued further graduate study in eating behavior and health psychology. My interest in psychotherapy led me to complete another graduate degree in counselling psychology. Becoming a registered clinical counsellor has deepened my knowledge and skill base, particularly in dynamic, systemic, and expressive approaches. I have family therapy experience and a certificate in traumatic stress studies. In addition to EMDR, other approaches I draw from include relational/dynamic, sensorimotor, cognitive, mentalization, and mindfulness therapies.
