Provisional Registered Psychologist
Designation and Experience:
I am currently a registered provisional psychologist. I finished my M.Sc. in Educational Psychology with a specialization in counselling from the University of Calgary. I have over a decade experience working in the mental health field. I help children, teens, and adults find their strengths and better cope with life challenges by using a combination of collaborative therapeutic modalities. My areas of specialization are developmental diversities such as autism, ADHD, learning disabilities, giftedness, and selective mutism. I have worked with many FSCD and PDD clients and have extensive experience working with families to organize, create and implement plans for treatment goals that fit each of their unique lifestyles. I also have training in Gottmancouples counselling to help support couples in strengthening their bond. I am LGBQT2S+ and BIPOC allied. Finally, I can speak Mandarin-Chinese for those that need a language bridge.
What inspires you?
In general, I am inspired by people’s strengths and stories. I am humbled by individuals that have the courage to seek help when it is necessary and to allow themselves to be vulnerable.
What are your proudest accomplishments?
I am proud to be an ally for the marginalized communities I work with. Specifically, I take great pride in giving back to the community. I started a non-profit during my undergraduate degree to help provide support and resources to women and children with disabilities and I have been a director of both a First Nation’s cultural group as well as a local animal rescue.
What are your hobbies and interests?
In my spare time, I like to be active, especially with my two fur babies, dancing (I love teaching others how to dance!), video games, and fantasy, and being a self-proclaimed foodie.
