I provide counseling and personal consulting to manage crises, assess personal and professional functioning, clarify goals, and strengthen social and emotional skills. I specialize in online relationship counseling. Online counseling allows me to be accessible whenever and wherever it’s convenient for you, and you can continue to see me wherever your life takes you. My counseling style is trauma-informed, solutions-focused therapy. The methodologies I use include cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectical-behavior therapy (DBT), and emotion-focused therapy (EFT). My role throughout is to nonjudgmentally help you reach your goals as effectively as possible through research-based psychological strategies.

My Background

I have a Master's in Clinical Psychology from Lewis & Clark College and a Bachelor's in Psychology from the University of Toronto. I also contribute to the field through research, psychometric tool development, consulting, and peer-review. I have provided psychological consultation for several mental healthcare startups. My previous research was on the development of innovative measurements for fine motor skills, and my current research focuses on the treatment of tinnitus using mobile medical device apps. I also review for the journal, Ecopsychology.
