I have been working in the field since 2000, starting with Child and Youth Mental Health Services. In my time there I performed intake duties, urgent response, suicide risk assessments, mental health assessments, treatment planning and therapy with some of the most amazing young people in Kamloops. I worked with children as young as 6 and up to the age of 18 year old. In 2006, I also started doing some private practice work, expanding my experience to include working with adult individuals, couples, and families. I am now in private practice full time at Synergy Counselling Associates.
My claim to fame has been my work with individuals of all ages with anxiety disorders, panic, OCD, and social phobias.
I also have a special interest in working with people with distorted body image and/or disordered eating, suffering from grief/loss, separation/divorce, depression, and co-dependency related struggles. In addition, I have worked with a lot of men and women struggling with isolation, burnout, and relationship problems.
