Mental Health Information, Resources and Consulting


Welcome.

I am a psychologist practicing in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. This site provides information about my practice and services.

Online courses. One current initiative is the development of a series of online courses for professionals and the public on psychological topics. Current courses for the public include Breathing Made Easy, What Is Depression?, and What Causes Depression? Professionals may find these courses of interest as well, plus we have courses designed expressly for professionals: Cognitive Behavioural Group Therapy for Depression, and Diagnosing Depression and Related Mood Disorders.

Here’s a preview of the most recent course:
