Assessment services are only provided for Veterans Affairs Canada and the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
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 members of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police:
I provide annual psychological reviews, isolated post assessments, limited duration post assessments, and individual critical incident debriefing. Please contact my office for more information.
For Royal Canadian Mounted Police applicants:
I provide MMPI-2-RF testing once per month in a group format. I follow Covid19 protocols for sanitizing and physical distancing. A maximum of four applicants are allowed to write the MMPI-2-RF in group format with appropriate physical distancing measures in place. Please call my office for dates.
I provide RCMP applicant interviews. If you are required to complete a clinical interview following the completion of your MMPI-2-RF, please contact my office to schedule an appointment. Interviews are conducted weekly.
Psychological Counselling Services:
I provide individual psychotherapy to young adults and adults. My practice is currently focusing exclusively on first responders, the military, 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.
My primary treatment areas include:
- Operational stress injuries
- Panic attacks
- Trauma (including childhood trauma)
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder
- Chronic illness
- Chronic pain
- Life transitions
- Grief and loss
- Low self-esteem
- Making confident life choices
- Work-related stress
I offer a variety of evidence-based treatments:
- Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
- Solution Focused Therapy
- Exposure Response Prevention
- Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE)
- Clinical Hypnosis
- Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)
- Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
I also provide telephone counselling and videoconferencing sessions for those individuals who live remotely and/or are not able to come to the office.
When my clients finish counselling, they often feel calmer, more confident, and better able to cope with stress. They’re equipped with effective techniques they can use for the rest of their lives.
Contact me today for a free, confidential 10 minute telephone consultation to discuss how I can help you live a calmer, healthier life or to book an appointment.
