I am a Registered Clinical Counselor specializing in individual therapy. Recently, I have collaborated with Jenny DeReis, MA and Garth Walmsley of Walmsley and Associates. We are working under the shared banner of Counselling Centre for the North which will offer specialized therapeutic services for individuals dealing with emotion dysregulation, Borderline Personality Disorder, and other psychological issues. This therapy will empower clients to gain skills in emotion regulation which will help them lead a life worth living. Our centre will offer services to children, youth and adults.
I completed my undergraduate degree in Psychology from the University of Alberta and a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University. I also hold a specialized certification in Stress and Wellness from the Canadian Stress Institute. I provide face to face therapy, telephonic therapy and online therapy via my private practice in Prince George, BC, Canada. I work with adults and adolescents.
My clinical interests include emotional dysregulation, stress and wellness, chronic pain management, therapy for sleep issues, caregiver burnout and associated mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and addictions.
I have over 28 years experience working with adults and youth in educational, recreational and mental health and in my current clinicial practice I work with a broad spectrum of clients with a wide range of issues.
My therapeutic approach is interactive and solution-focused and I draw from many evidence based therapies such as T.E.A.M. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) in order to provide a unique approach tailored to each client's needs. I am a Level I Certified T.E.A.M. CBT therapist.
With passion and understanding I work with each individual in order to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to achieving. My goal is to provide therapy that will empower clients to achieve personal growth, solve problems and gain freedom from emotional pain.
