About Me

​I am a Certified NeurOptimal® Trainer and provide Neurofeedback training to clients.  I have 6 years of experience in the bio-psychology and mental health field with a focus on Neurofeedback and Counseling.  

I received a Bachelor of Science Degree with a combined major in Biology and Psychology from the University of Victoria. I also completed a post degree diploma in the Inter-professional Mental Health and Addiction (IMHA) program at Camosun College. Obtaining these degrees taught me discipline, motivation, and hard work.

I gained experience and knowledge in the following areas:

  • Knowledge of mental health, addictions, stages of change and concurrent disorder challenges

  • Maintenance of therapeutic relationships, planning, goal setting, and evaluation strategies

  • Knowledge of the biological structures of the brain and behavior

  • Knowledge of the molecular foundations and processes of the central nervous system

  • Cognitive behavioral therapy skills, counseling skills, and crisis response skills

  • Knowledge of trauma informed care, response therapy and harm reduction 

  • Personal and professional ethics in practice and knowledge of the mental health act

I have always had a fascination with the brain and  how the brain functions normally and how it can be altered when it is functioning abnormally.  I am also interested in structural plasticity of the brain and how this can be influenced by age, stress and traumatic brain injury. 

 

I am a huge supporter of  non-invasive rehabilitation therapies such as neurofeedback.  I think it is very important to find ways to rehabilitate the brain without medications in order to decrease harmful side effects, and make treatments more effective and sustainable for long-term use. I think neurofeedback is currently underestimated as reliable treatment and I am interested in conducting further evidence-based research to add to the research which already shows its potential and efficacy.
