Registered Clinical Psychologist
Lesley enjoys working collaboratively and compassionately with her clients to process experiences that contribute to current physical and mental health problems. She draws from several theoretical approaches including cognitive behavioural, emotion-focused, psychodynamic, and mindfulness in order to help her clients get the most out of each session.
Lesley understands that many people feel stuck, facing the same problem time and time again, and have trouble figuring out what to do next. That is why she believes it is not only important to help you learn about and choose strategies to make problems more manageable, but also to better understand the underlying cause of your problems in order to help you get unstuck and more empowered to live the life you want.
Lesley has training and experience working with individuals (18 years old and up) with a wide range of problems; including anxiety, depression, relationship problems, self-esteem, stress /burnout, trauma (PTSD), and coping with chronic and/or terminal illness. Over the last few years she has also worked closely with Veterans Affairs to provide assessment and treatment to Veterans and First Responders.
Lesley completed her PhD in Clinical Psychology at the University of Saskatchewan. She has experience working in a variety of settings including hospital, long-term care, forensic, drug rehabilitation, and private practice.
