Services > Supervision and Mentorship > Supervision


An important aspect of my practice is combining clinical work with teaching and supervision. For the past ten years, I have enjoyed linking theoretical knowledge to clinical practice through teaching graduate counselling psychology courses at the University of Calgary and Athabasca University.

Teaching and supervision enhance my clinical work. Clinical or research supervision aligns well with my interests in individual and group counselling and psychotherapy, perfectionism, procrastination, interpersonal dynamics, eating disorders, and sport psychology. I also have an appreciation for multicultural and diversity issues as I have had the opportunity to live and study in different countries and interact with people from various backgrounds. These experiences have given me a unique perspective on diversity that I regularly apply to my teaching, supervision, and counselling practice.

I am sensitive to the unique student/supervisee needs and help assimilate these needs with the objectives of their graduate or postgraduate studies. I apply experiential methods in my teaching and supervision to demonstrate the importance of healthy and well-balanced students. My focus is on helping students realize that compassionate response to clients is best provided by individuals who can combine their skills and knowledge to provide effective and competent service to others. My interest in supervision stems from my work as a training coordinator at Mount Royal University, where my supervisory role included coordinating, supervising, and evaluating practicum students, developing training policies and procedures, and selecting new trainees.
