As a Registered Psychologist and Certified EMDR Therapist, I provide psychological services to youth, adults, families, and groups.I help clients resolve current life difficulties, identify life goals, and develop strategies for reaching those goals.I select and customize strategies for the needs of each client, therefore, therapy may look different for each client and/or family.Training & QualificationsAs for my training and qualifications, I have been working providing clinical services for approximately 20 years. I hold a Masters Degree in Counselling Psychology and I obtained my status as a Registered Psychologist in 2010.I am a Certified EMDR Therapist and with specialized training in play therapy, Jungian sand tray work, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (a body-based approach). I primarily use EMDR to help clients heal from overwhelming experiences.When using EMDR, I use a phase-oriented approach to treatment and I am guided by the theory of structural dissociation of personality (e.g., the different parts of ourselves...which we all have), attachment theory (e.g., how we learn to relate to other people and our ability to trust others, ourselves, and the world) and adaptive information processing theory (e.g., reprocessing experiences so they no longer lead to maladaptive thoughts, behaviors, or symptoms).Services can be Accessed Privately or Through the Following Plans:Automobile Accident Insurance (Section B)Extended Health Care Plan (Blue Cross, Manulife, Sunlife, etc)IRS (Indian Residential Schools Resolution Health Support Program)NIHB (Non-Insured Health Benefits Program)Veteran's AffairsWorkers' Compensation Board
