MACP., Registered Psychologist
I am a diverse but down-to-earth individual and approach my work with that same attitude. I appreciate my peaceful country lifestyle and love working in rural health care. Self-admittedly, I am a science nerd who would be a permanent student if she could and is always exploring the scientific basis for how the world around her works. When I am not working, I can be found in my garden or hanging with my critters and family. I am incessantly curious and always love learning new things, from woodworking to music.
I understand how overwhelming life can seem at times, but it can get better. You deserve a peaceful path through the world. I would be honoured to walk with you as you navigate life’s challenges to achieve your goals. I genuinely look forward to hearing your story and sharing your journey toward your best, most fulfilled self.
I enjoy working with the unique challenges experienced in rural populations, Veterans, First Responders, and Health Care Professionals. I am a provider for the AgKnow mental health program servicing Farm Families in Alberta. My areas of interest include complex trauma and grief, emotional regulation, personality disorders and their impact on families, ADHD, depression, anxiety, and interactions between physiological and psychological health.
I enjoy helping clients explore their thoughts, feelings, and experiences while considering how these have shaped their core underlying beliefs, impacted their success, and influenced their happiness. This supports the client in identifying patterns that are not helpful, realizing healthier, adaptive ways of thinking, incorporating these into their behaviours, and improving their quality of life.
