I'm a qualified and skilled mental health professional with 30 years experience in the field. I worked as a Registered Nurse (CNO) in mental health inpatient- as well as outpatient/community based settings and most recently in private practice as a Registered Psychotherapist (CRPO). When working with adults and their families my approach is focused on the needs and dynamics of each individual, respecting their knowledge and experience. My areas of practice and expertise include working through the effects of acute stress disorder as well as developmental trauma disorder (PTS), anxiety (OCD), depression, substance use, biographical transitions, questions of faith and search for meaning. I'm comfortable with ethnic and cultural diversity, process of grief and chronic illness.
