I have been practicing as a social worker for 40 years, with a focus on clinical social work and counselling for the past 28. I have been mandated as a Clinical Social Worker under the Alberta Health Professions Act since 2007. I completed EMDR Basic Level 1 and 11 training in 2006 and have practiced using EMDR when appropriate since that time. I have maintained and updated my EMDR practice through extensive reading, attendance at workshops and conferences, webinars, and DVDs. I have received training from experts in the EMDR community such as Ad de Jong (2017); Richard Keisling (2017); Andrew Leeds (2018) ; Dr. Susan Brown (2017); Phillip Mansfield.

I have worked over the years with couples, adolescents, children, families, and individuals. More recently I have streamlined my private practice to work exclusively with adult individuals who may be presenting with a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, trauma, grief/loss, relationships, sexual orientation/gender identity, addictions. I primarily practice from a Mindfulness Based CBT modality, utilising EMDR as an additional tool as needed. I utilise a strengths based approach with a strong focus on the therapeutic relationship.
I welcome any questions prospective clients may have during a telephone intake interview.
