In 1992, I completed a Master's Degree in Educational Psychology (Counselling) and worked in a school division, then later at the University of Saskatchewan in the Department currently known Student Wellness. During that time, I completed a Ph.D. in the CPA/APA accredited Clinical Psychology Program at the University of Saskatchewan, completing a pre-Doctoral Residency in Edmonton, AB. During my residency, I completed rotations in Adult Psychiatry, Brain Injury, and Pediatrics, at Alberta Hospital Edmonton and Glenrose Rehabilitation Hospital.
Between 2000 and 2022, I worked in Clinical Health Psychology, Royal University Hospital, providing outpatient and inpatient assessment and psychotherapy services to adults and children. As part of my role, I provided clinical supervision to psychology graduate students and predoctoral residents. In 2019, I agreed to temporarily take on the role of Training Director for the Saskatoon and Area Predoctoral Residency Program, accredited by the Canadian Psychological Association.
I have been on faculty in the College of Medicine since 2005 and have taught medical students and psychiatry residents seminars in the areas of learning models and behavioral interventions, and short term dynamic psychotherapy.
Alongside my public practice, I have worked in private practice since 1992, starting my own practice in 2001, and expanding to full time private practice in the fall of 2022.
