How I work: Drawing on an understanding of your strengths and challenges, we will come up with goals and strategies to make the changes you are trying to make as easy as possible. We will find ways to make your emotions work for you and face pain points together. I use evidence-based approaches such as cognitive behavioural therapy, dialectical behaviour-informed therapy, and acceptance and commitment therapy. 

Who I work with: Adults & Older Adults, Individuals

What I treat: Anxiety, Depression, Complex Trauma, Perfectionism, Fertility Concerns, IBS/IBD

A bit about my training and activities: I completed my PhD at Simon Fraser University in Clinical Psychology in 2014, with a residency at the Calgary Clinical Residency Program. I’ve been registered with the College of Psychologists of BC since 2015 (CPBC Reg #2217). 

I work part-time at BC Mental Health and Substance Use Services and worked at the North Shore Stress and Anxiety Clinic for 8 years before moving my practice closer to home with EBH. I supervise graduate students through SFU and BCMHSUS and I have served as an examiner with the College of Psychologists of BC.

How I work: I help my clients take practical and active approaches to their problems, learn ways to handle difficult thoughts and feelings more effectively, and ultimately have richer and more meaningful lives. I use evidence-informed approaches including CBT (cognitive behaviour therapy) and ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy). I’m happy to see clients even for one or two sessions so that we can formulate a plan and direct you to evidence-based self-help resources, with occasional follow-up sessions if desired.

Who I work with: Adults & Older Adults, Individuals

What I treat: Anxiety (including perinatal anxiety), OCD, PTSD, Stress, Habit Disorders, Insomnia, and Depression

A bit about my training and activities:

 I completed my PhD in Clinical Psychology at UBC in 2000. I completed a pre-doctoral internship at UBC Hospital, and a postdoctoral fellowship in the Department of Psychiatry at UBC. I’ve been registered with the College of Psychologists of BC since 2001 (CPBC Reg #1513). I’m certified in cognitive behaviour therapy by the Canadian Association of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy.

I also practice at North Shore Stress and Anxiety Clinic in North Vancouver, and serve on the UBC Behavioural Research Ethics Board and the Anxiety Canada Scientific Committee.

I’ve previously held positions as a psychologist at the Heart Centre at St Paul’s Hospital, at Boreal Wellness Centre, and at TELUS Health Care Centre, and as an Instructor in the UBC Midwifery program. I’ve done research on cognitive behavior therapy for OCD and PTSD, and I still collaborate with UBC faculty doing research in perinatal anxiety and OCD.
