I obtained my Ph.D. from McGill University in 1985 with specialization in both Clinical Psychology and Biological Psychology. Prior to this I completed my M.A. in psychology at McGill and obtained my Honours B.A. in psychology from Concordia University, graduating Summa Cum Laude. I received several undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral scholarships from universities and from the federal and provincial governments. 

My Ph.D. program was approved for training in Clinical Psychology by both the Canadian Psychological Association and the American Psychological Association. Following my Ph.D.  I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of British Columbia. I was subsequently on  faculty as a professor at both UBC and Simon Fraser University. I continued as a Clinical Associate of SFU where I supervised doctoral students in the Clinical Psychology program and conducted research for many years, ending this relationship in 2003. 

I am registered to practice with the College of Psychologists of B.C. (Registration: #00953) and have an appointment as an Oral Examiner for new applicants to the College.  I am also a member of the British Columbia Psychological Association, the Canadian Psychological Association, and  the American Psychological Association.

I am a Certified Play Therapist (Supervisor Level, #470) with the Canadian Association for Child and Play Therapy. In the past I was a Registered Play Therapist - Supervisor, with the U.S.-based Association for Play Therapy, but recently switched my affiliation to the Canadian Association. I am a long-time member of the British Columbia Play Therapy Association.  

I have been qualified as an expert witness in both Provincial and Supreme Courts in B.C. as an expert in the assessment and treatment of children and adults, and in family relationships. 

You may request a copy of my Curriculum Vitae which provides further details of my education and credentials, and lists research grants (three), journal articles  (twelve), book chapters (four), and conference papers (twenty-one) that I have authored or co-authored. It also details my areas of internship training and extensive post-Ph.D. continuing education. 

A Note Regarding Client Testimonials:  Although potential clients may sometimes wish testimonials from previous clients, I would consider it unethical to ask my clients to provide testimonials regarding their experience with me, and indeed Registered Psychologists are not permitted to do so.   I am able to tell you that a substantial part of my practice comes from clients being referred to me by previous clients or by other health and mental health professionals.
