My Approach & Values

As an educational psychologist I apply the art and science of psychology and psychotherapy in the broad field of learning and development. I offer a safe and welcoming space for children, adolescents and adults to explore, optimize and enhance their educational and psychological health and well-being.

My practice is focused primarily on providing psychotherapy to children, adolescents, young adults and their families.  I have a particular interest in working therapeutically with trauma. I have specialized training in newly developed psychotherapy approaches, namely Brainspotting (Phase 1 and 2) and BrainWorking Recursive Therapy (BWRT) (Level 1 and 2). I also provide career counselling, motivational coaching and a variety of psychological assessments.
