I am a current student at City University and am a registered member of the Psychologists’ Association of Alberta. I believe in client centered therapy and adaptability as every client is unique. Throughout my journey towards becoming a psychologist I have worked as an educational assistant in both preschools and elementary schools over the last seven years. Working as an educational assistant the last seven years alongside attending university to become a psychologist has highlighted the importance of empathy, patience, adaptability, and inclusivity for not only clients but in everyday life.
I believe that as a therapist it is my job to provide clients with a safe, comfortable, judgement-free, supportive, and caring environment. The main therapeutic approach I use is Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, due to its adaptability and inclusivity regarding clients. As a psychologist I believe I need to work alongside my clients and support them in their time of need with resources and skills that will best work and suit them. Each client is unique and therefore their therapeutic process and solutions will be unique to them.

I am a Métis psychological intern who is currently completing her Masters in Counselling Psychology through Yorkville University and holds a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from MacEwan University. My clinical supervisor is Marney Howard. My previous working experience includes working with families, adults, and vulnerable populations such as inner-city adults experiencing homelessness as well as adults living in Alberta Hospital. In these roles, I have worked with adults who have experienced trauma including family and domestic violence, developmental and intellectual disabilities, poverty, and substance use disorders. I have worked in a variety of settings, such as inner city, in home and shelter, and within community outreach programs. I enjoy using my advocacy skills and gravitate towards a more humanistic and solution-focused theoretical lens as I believe in meeting individuals where they are at and focusing on resilience. When I am not working, I enjoy hiking, snowboarding, spending time with family and am a huge animal lover.
