Hello! I am a Canadian counseling psychologist who has worked in institutional and private practice settings for the past 20 years, with a focus on eating disorders and trauma. In the latter 15 years of my practice, I used AEDP™ as my central modality, having taken Immersion, Essential Skills, and Core Training. I am a published researcher, including recent qualitative studies investigating the therapeutic potential of ceremonial ayahuasca use. I have personally experienced drinking ayahuasca in jurisdictions where it is legal to do so. My past research interests have included eating disorders and professional ethics. I locate myself further as a white, Western, well-resourced, able-bodied, cis-het woman with English-Irish ancestry, who lives and works on the traditional, unceded, ancestral homelands of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
