Designation and Experience: Registered Psychologist, Certified in Holistic Nutrition. I have been a practicing Registered Psychologist in Calgary for over 20 years. My focus has always been on psychoeducational assessments with children, teens, and adults, as well as play- and art-based therapy with children, and parent coaching. In 2012, I went back to school and became certified in Holistic Nutrition. There is such a strong link between what we put in our mouths and how our brain functions throughout the lifespan. I continue to enjoy completing assessments with all age groups and “supplementing” my recommendations with nutritional information to support their areas of challenge. I also am the only person in Calgary (I believe) that offers this combination of support of mental health and nutrition. If you are interested in receiving service inclusive of how nutrition impacts your mental health, please book your Initial Intake: Nutrition and Mental Health Counselling appointment.
