Professional Biography

I have a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Trinity Western University where I was recognized with a special award for the Integrative Practice of Professional Psychology. During my training, I worked with teenagers in a high school setting and found solution-focused therapy to be particularly effective. While undergoing training for Observed Experiential Integration, I worked with trauma clients suffering from dissociative symptoms and found that to be effective. Finally, while working in a non-profit community setting, I saw clients suffering with anxiety, dissociation, life transitioning issues, etc. and found that client’s best responded to a client-centered approach.


After receiving my Master’s degree, I continued training with the International Society for Logotherapy and Existential Analysis and now have a Certificate of Basic Training in Existential Analysis. If you want more information about existential analysis visit our Canadian website "Existential Analysis Canada". I now come from not only a client-centered approach, but a meaning-centered approach. This approach empowers the client, helps to strengthen the ‘self’ and improve relationships with others. It helps you to find your ‘yes’ to life and freedom to move forward with a sense of purpose.


I am also a Level II Practitioner in Observed Experiential Integration (OEI). This method is highly experiential and from my own personal experience, is quite effective at helping to integrate past traumas/old hurts so that they no longer interfere with present day functioning. If you are feeling stuck or find yourself repeating old patterns in relationships, professional encounters, etc, then you could be ‘reliving’ a past trauma.
