I am a Registered Psychologist in the Province of Alberta, Canada, who is practicing in Southern Alberta. My professional office is in Brooks. I am a member of the Canadian Register of Health Services Providers in Psychology, and I also maintain memberships in the College of Alberta Psychologists, the Psychologists’ Association of Alberta and the Canadian Psychological Association. My Ph.D. in Clinical, School and Community Psychology was completed in Calgary, in 1988. Previous degrees include a Bachelor of Education with an English major and a Master of Arts in Education, a degree which provided an important basis for my work as a Psychologist, because it was focussed on the ethical and philosophical implications of work in the “Helping Professions.”

Psychology is a Helping Profession, and so are all professions which involve work involve work intended to be beneficial to others, such as Teaching, Medicine, Nursing, Physiotherapy, Social Work, etc. I was a teacher for several years, before returning to the University of Calgary, to study in the field of School Counselling and then at the doctoral level, in Clinical Psychology. My studies were accompanied by valuable training in crisis work, as I was employed during my Ph.D. program, as a member of the Psychiatric Assessment Team in the Emergency Department at Calgary’s former Holy Cross Hospital. My subsequent psychological career has been mainly in private practice, in Calgary from 1988 to 2004, and in Brooks since 2006.
