I received my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Queen's University at Kingston Ontario in 1991. I have extensive experience in the diagnosis and treatment of a wide spectrum of clinical problems. In addition, I have a background in psychological research and prefer to utilize research-proven (evidence-based) interventions.
I bring a sensitive, practical problem-solving approach to my work using a broad range of psychological theories and approaches depending on a client's needs and concerns. In particular, I draw upon mindfulness practice, CBT (cognitive-behavioural therapy), attachment and family systems theory. Please visit my Website to learn more about me, my work and how I might assist you.
In addition to my private practice work, I have taught psychology at the university level, developed and presented workshops as well as published research findings on a range of topics. I routinely seek out educational opportunities in order to add to my knowledge base as well as keep myself up-to-date.
