I am a Registered Psychologist in the Province of British Columbia who has a practice in Surrey where I have been working with individuals, couples, families, and organizations since 1986. My clients include people experiencing major life changes and trauma, (e.g. job loss, death and dying & recovery from injury). Some just want to "play a better game of golf" or enhance their performance as a parent or professional. I also treat many disorders including anxiety, depression, and chronic pain. Treatment methods include cognitive behavioral therapy, EMDR, Mindfulness, and Performance Enhancement Training.
I have been using Gottman Method Couples' Therapy since1996, EMDR since 1993, and Mindfulness since 1992 and was the first Psychologist in Canada to hold the Gottman Method Couples' Therapist designation.
Professional Background: I hold Memberships with the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy, with both the Canadian and American Psychological Associations, and have been elected to the International Council of Psychologists (Lifetime Member). I am a Member of and have been awarded the Distinguished Service Award by the BC Psychological Association. I am an EMDRIA Approved Consultant, and a Board Certified Expert in Traumatic Stress with a Diplomate from the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress. I am listed in the National Registers for the Canadian Register of Health Service Providers in Psychology, and for the International Association for the Study of Pain.
Although I am English speaking, I work with clients from many different cultures in which I have travelled or lived. I have worked with clients from age 4 to 74 but now mostly work with teens and adults.
