I bring to my practice many years of experience as a registered nurse administering bedside nursing care in a variety of wards in an acute care hospital. I continue to be an active member of the College & Association of Registered Nurses of Alberta.

As a student enrolled in a Master of Science Degree, Marital and Family Therapy, I gained extensive experience in counseling at the Salvation Army Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation Centre and two local churches. I am an associate member of the American Association of Marital and Family Therapists.

I have been in private practice since 2005 and have gained experience with a wide variety of issues brought to me from clients in the community.
