About Me

I am a licensed psychologist located in San Francisco, with 20 years of experience helping individuals at various stages in adult life overcome challenges and live a more fulfilling and empowered life. For me, being a therapist is more than a career - it’s a calling. I am honored to accompany people in their personal work, as they seek healing and fulfillment. I listen actively, with warmth and respect, and provide EMDR treatment that is tailored to each person’s needs, goals, and values.

Education & Experience

I grew up in Western Canada and lived in the United Kingdom and Eastern Canada before settling in the beautiful Bay Area 16 years ago. I completed my PhD in clinical psychology at the University of Ottawa, Canada, followed by postdoctoral research and clinical fellowships at the University of California, San Francisco and the Veterans Health Administration in Palo Alto, California. I opened my private practice in 2012 and quickly appreciated the prevalence of trauma and trauma-related symptoms among my patients. I completed my EMDRIA-approved trained in 2019 and am a certified EMDR provider. I regularly attend trauma-related trainings by instructors such as Bessel van der Kolk, Janina Fisher, Peter Levine, and Richard Schwartz. I am also constantly learning from my clients, as I observe the range of approaches that truly help people to heal and grow.
