Education & Experience

I have 31 years of experience providing services to adults, adolescents, and children. I have worked extensively with public safety personnel and occupational groups who have exposure to potentially psychologically traumatic events, including but not limited to critical incident stress, vicarious trauma, operational stress, and post-traumatic stress injuries. My experience with this cohort informs my intention and passion to continue to develop this specialty area of practice. As a therapist, I practice EMDR as a complete psychotherapeutic modality. I integrate elements of Guided Imagery, Mindfulness-Based (MBCT), Attachment-based, Somatic, & Ego State Therapies into the first two phases. I have experience working with public safety personnel and first responders who have been diagnosed with PTSD, or who are experiencing PTSIs or OSIs. I have provided support to partners, and family members. Using a trauma-focused, person-centred, anti-oppressive approach, my passion is to support you “where you are at”. My aim is to increase recovery, promote resilience, and create space for transformative healing. Ages: individual services to adults. Education: Master of Social Work, Bachelor of Social Work, Bachelor of Arts (Sociology/Human Justice)
