I am a Registered Psychologist in the province of British Columbia (CPBC # 2275)
As a psychologist, I believe in my clients’ resilience and ability to overcome challenging life conditions. Sometimes however, clients can benefit from professional help that is empowering and safe and promotes clients’ readiness to address concerns and receive evidence-based treatment.
I provide effective cognitive behavioural interventions that integrate mindfulness, multicultural and social justice perspectives. My approach to therapy and assessment is collaborative and relational. I have completed an externship in Emotion focused therapy that enhances my work with individuals, couples and families.
I have extensively worked with clients in helping them overcome depression, anxiety and stress related problems. Furthermore, I have delivered integrated treatment for trauma, alcohol and drug related concerns. Additionally, I have gained extensive experience working with university and college students, as well as international, immigrant and refugee populations.
An important part of my training has been to honour diversity and raise awareness around discrimination, social oppression and systemic inequalities that marginalize my clients.
