About Me

I practice using a cutting edge model of therapy designed to re-pattern the nervous system and the disorganization in the lower brain centers, areas that are often un-addressed in many current therapy models. Education and Training I am a Registered Psychologist and have completed extensive training in Play Therapy, Sandplay Therapy and Eye Movement and Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy. I have also completed addition training in Theraplay, Synergetic Play Therapy (SPT), Child-Parent Relationship Therapy (CPRT), Autplay Therapy, First Play Training and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy. I am a Certified EMDR Therapist, a Certified Synergetic Play Therapist and am also a trained Demartini Method Facilitator. In addition to my clinical work. I also provide supervision to other professionals. I am a Certified/Registered Play Therapy Supervisor in Canada, in the United States and Internationally. I specialize in Play Therapy with toddlers, preschool and school-aged children, Family Therapy, and Individual Therapy with adolescents and adults. I am currently an EMDR Consultant in Training and offer consultation towards becoming a Certified EMDR Therapist.

Education & Experience

I really enjoy working with students and have found different ways to incorporate play, art, and sandplay into the supervision process. These avenues provide supervisees with more insight into their cases as well as into themselves as therapists.
