I have a Bachelors of Science in Psychology with a concentration in Behavioural Neuroscience and a Masters of Science in Health Psychology with a concentration in Nutrition. I am a Registered Psychologist in the Province of Alberta, Canada.
My passion is to help individuals understand how their own unique personality, life experiences, and social conditioning have impacted and are currently impacting the quality of their relationships and lives. Science and evidence-based approaches allow me to individualize interventions to each person I have the privilege to work with. I take a collaborative and holistic perspective when it comes to understanding the body and the mind and how to heal it.
Utilizing a strengths-based approach which draws upon cognitive-behavioural, solution-focused, dialectical behavioral and mindfulness based therapies, I work collaboratively with my clients to help them get to where they would like to go. Whether this includes behavioral modifications, a mindfulness practice, cognitive re-framing, skills training, distress tolerance, or empathic support, I promise to support you on your journey through life.
In addition, it is my belief that we can promote greater symptom improvement by utilizing the cutting edge technology of neurofeedback. NeurOptimal neurofeedback provides information to the brain to help your own brain organize and optimize itself.
Personally, I am a mom to two great boys, wife and an avid tennis, yoga, hiker, and lover of all things active. As a former Collegiate athlete in the sport of tennis, I am passionate about the role of physical health in our mental health and wellness. In addition, I am the co-founder of www.sheworth.org which is a movement to help women improve their self-worth and ultimately the quality of their lives.
