Biography

I am a registered psychologist in Alberta, Canada & in Australia with expertise in trauma, addiction, professional ethics, and rural, northern practice. I have been an instructor for Athabasca University since 2000 teaching undergraduate counselling and psychotherapy and an international adjunct with CSU (AUS) for graduate studies since 2010. I am active with provincial, national, and international psychology organizations.

My research and publication areas include professional ethics, rural practice, psychology and Canadian Aboriginal peoples, psychosocial oncology, and existentialism.

My 2010 doctoral dissertation was titled, “Professional Ethics in Rural Canadian Psychology: Understanding the Experiences of Practising Psychologists”. This qualitative research project was an interpretive inquiry involving psychologists from across Canada.
