Registered Psychologist

Biography

Since receiving my doctorate degree in Applied Psychology from the University of Toronto in 1987, I have been helping people overcome personal issues and improve their lives. The most rewarding part of my career has been seeing the life-enhancing changes experienced by my clients.

I began my professional career in 1985 in Toronto doing clinical and research work with eating disorders. My doctoral dissertation focused on the family relationships of clients with eating disorders. I was fortunate to have been involved in the establishment of the first eating disorder treatment centre in Canada at Toronto General Hospital. Here, I participated in research projects and was a clinician providing assessment and therapeutic treatment in the centre.

I moved to Vancouver, B.C. in 1987 and began a post-doctoral internship at the British Columbia Children's Hospital. I was then hired to work in the Neo-natal Follow-up Clinic where children born prematurely were assessed to monitor their development. A few years later, I worked at the Counselling Centre at the University of British Columbia. In 1994, I took a position at St. Paul's Hospital in the Eating Disorders Clinic, providing assessment of eating disorders and individual and group therapeutic treatment. Later, I moved back to the British Columbia Children's Hospital where I worked in the Psychology Department and in the Eating Disorders Program, providing assessments, as well as individual, group, and family therapy. During this time, I began a private practice providing individual psychotherapy for children, adolescents, adults, and couples. I also worked with a large employee assistance program, treating a broad variety of clients and cases.

Since 2005, I have worked exclusively in my expanding practice and have provided both individual and couples therapy as well as psycho-educational assessments for learning disabilities. I currently treat a wide range of psychological conditions including depression, anxiety, abuse, loss, eating disorders, parenting difficulties, stress, and relationship and work issues.

My experience in the field has been both specialized and wide-ranging. I have worked in the psychiatry departments at major hospitals, particularly in specialized eating disorders programs, at counselling centres, employee assistance programs, and in private practice. This experience has given me the ability to assess a wide range of issues and determine the most effective treatment.

I have offices in North Vancouver and in the Kerrisdale area of Vancouver and provide services in English and French.
