My vision was to create a therapeutic clinic that feels like a home, a place you can kick up your feet, relax, and feel safe. I am a practical therapist who is able to adapt to the needs of individuals and families to support them in their journey to discovering peace of mind. My training in a variety of evidence-based therapies, such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR), and play therapies allow me to be flexible in meeting your needs whether you are a child, teen, or adult.
My practice integrates Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness-based approaches (e.g., Acceptance and Commitment Therapy; ACT) within the context of collaborative and supportive therapeutic relationships. I received my Master’s and Ph.D. in clinical psychology from the University of Manitoba and completed my clinical psychology internship at the Student Counselling and Career Centre at the University of Manitoba. My clinical interests include helping adults with anxiety (e.g., generalized, health, social, panic, phobias), depression, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), health concerns, stress management, life adjustment, return to work difficulties, Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), and Autism Spectrum Disorder. I also have extensive experience working with individuals with chronic pain and spinal cord injuries, as well as individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. In addition to my work with adults, I also enjoy helping young children (4-10 years), and their caregivers, with anxiety (e.g., separation, social, generalized, phobias, school refusal), Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), behavioural difficulties (e.g., Autism Spectrum Disorder - level 1/Asperger's Syndrome) and parenting concerns.
As a clinician, my primary focus is helping you feel better, improve your life, adjust to change and tackle adversity. I draw upon a variety of evidence based treatments in order to tailor my therapeutic approach to meet your unique individual needs: Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Stages of Change, Motivational Interviewing, Exposure of Response Prevention and Mindfulness-based practices. My clinical interests include helping adults cope with anxiety, depression, obsessive compulsive disorder, chronic pain, sleep issues, and chronic health adjustment. I obtained my doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of Manitoba and completed my clinical psychology internship at the QEII Health Sciences Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
In my work with clients, I strive to create a safe and judgment-free environment, in which you would feel understood, supported and comfortable. My therapeutic style is tailored to each client's unique situation and is based on the integration of several evidence-based treatment approaches. I provide psychological assessment and treatment for a range of mental health conditions and problems of living, including mood and anxiety disorders, panic attacks, adult ADHD, and sleep problems. I also see clients for difficulties related to stress, chronic pain, grief, adjustment problems, anger, and return to work issues. I received my Master of Arts Degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of Manitoba, and since then have practiced in a variety of settings, including a private practice, a physical rehabilitation center, a community counselling clinic, and an Employee Assistance Program. I provide services in English and Russian, and am registered with Psychological Association of Manitoba.
