Clinical interests: As the Psychologist (Program Development) for five adult inpatient mental health units at an acute care hospital, students working with me can see clients with a variety of presenting issues.

My theoretical perspective is Relational Psychotherapy, and interventions are informed by Brief and Cognitive-Behavioural techniques.
