Director of Mental Health Services

Biography

I am the Director of Mental Health Services at the Wellness Centre where most of my time is spent directing the day to day operations of our Mental Health Services.  I also supervise interns from our Counselling Psychology Master's program as well as provide counselling and mental health support to TWU students and staff. I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor and have worked at TWU for the past six years.  I practice from a client centered, trauma informed approach, tailoring therapy to the needs of each individual client.  Much of my work is informed by Attachment theory and Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) which allows me to meet my clients in their pain and suffering but also offer hope as connection to self and others is restored.  I have training in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), Observed Experiential Integration (OEI) and Clinical Supervision.

In my spare time I enjoy trail running and entertaining family and friends.
