Services Provided


Assessment Services:

Assessment services are only provided for Veterans Affairs Canada and the British Columbia Teachers’ Federation.

Please note that RCMP “E” Division Health Services removed me from their specialized providers list (i.e., de-listed me) and stopped paying my invoices. As a result, I no longer work with serving RCMP members.

For Veterans Affairs Canada assessments:

I conduct psychological assessments for VAC disability benefit/award. RCMP members requiring a VAC assessment for the disability benefit/award are also welcome to contact my office (these assessments are funded by VAC, not the RCMP). Your VAC Case Manager may request a psychological assessment for treatment purposes.

The purpose of these assessments is to gain a better understanding of a member’s or veteran’s social and emotional functioning, provide a psychological diagnosis (if relevant), and provide treatment recommendations.

Please contact my office for more information regarding VAC assessments.

For teachers who are part of the BC Teachers Federation:

Please ask your case manager to contact my office to discuss your request for a psychological assessment.

Psychological Counselling Services:

I provide individual psychotherapy to young adults and adults. I work with civilians, first responders (excluding serving RCMP members), and veterans.

I begin with a thorough assessment of your symptoms to ensure that the problem(s) and issue(s) are correctly identified. Based on this initial assessment, I will propose a specific treatment plan for you. The treatment plan will be tailored to suit your specific needs. I welcome your questions, concerns, and feedback along the way. If the treatment plan needs to be changed, we will discuss this together.
