I am a registered clinical psychologist in Vancouver B.C. My mission is to provide professional psychotherapy and psychological assessments to assist and treat adolescents and adults of all ages, and their families.
I primarily offer a Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) approach. The goal is to help individuals learn to identify their triggers, how their mental health impacts their life (i.e., school, work, family, social life), recognize any cognitive distortions, learn adaptive coping strategies, and manage a range of emotional and/or psychological difficulties. I am relatable, open-minded, and candid in my approach.
I also offer in-person group therapy, as well as virtual services. My group therapy sessions focus on many topics including stress, anxiety, and depression to name a few. We incorporate evidence-based techniques to provide patients with the tools to go beyond the therapy environment. Group sizes are kept small to ensure individual attention and optimal learning. Regardless of your age or the topic you wish to explore, our group therapy sessions provide a safe and confidential space for individuals to express themselves, receive support, and develop valuable coping strategies.
I provide comprehensive psychological testing to assess for common psychiatric issues (i.e., mood, anxiety, posttraumatic stress, ADHD) and learning disorder assessments (including giftedness). Psychological testing is available for adolescents and adults. Results can be used to assist with diagnosis and treatment planning.
If you are an adult seeking help or a parent seeking services for your teenager, my hope is to be of assistance to you. You are invited to call, e-mail, or use the contact form to arrange a free consultation to determine if this is the right fit for you and/or your family member.
I look forward to speaking with you.
