Clinical psychologist, PhD, Registered psychologist


I am a registered psychologist with the College of Psychologists of British Columbia, with my doctoral degree in clinical psychology. I also have an English undergraduate and a counselling masters’ degree.

I worked in college and university counselling centres, community mental health, psychiatric inpatient and primary care hospital settings before I joined UVic Counselling in 2008, seeing students individually, as a couple and in groups.

I taught courses at UVic, have been appointed as an adjunct assistant professor by the Department of Psychology, supervised graduate students clinically and co-coordinated the advanced counselling/psychotherapy practicum program.

In 2014, I took on the associate director’s role, overseeing day-to-day operations of Counselling and representing Counselling as an alternate to the director if needed.
