Steve is a Registered Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists. He specializes in treating a variety of concerns, such as anxiety, depression, trauma and PTSD, behavioural concerns, substance use, and relational issues and family dynamics. He uses Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA), Parent Management Training (PMT), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR). The type of therapy, or combination of types, that best supports your goals is chosen collaboratively, and can look different depending on what you want to achieve.
Steve works with some populations that may require a more specialized approach, including individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities, first responders or public safety personnel, and individuals with acquired brain injuries. Steve has considerable experience developing functional assessments and behaviour plans for both adults and children, and is available to provide this service to individuals under PDD or FSCD contracts.
Additionally, Steve provides assessments for adults who think they may have ADHD or Autism, and helps to develop treatment plans based on individual needs. Steve can also provide skills training for individuals with neurodivergent traits to help navigate some of the challenges they face in life.
Steve provides assessments of cognitive and adaptive functioning for individuals 16 and over who may need to know if an intellectual disability is present in order to secure funding, and also provides capacity assessments for individuals who may need guardianship or trusteeship.
Steve is an experienced trainer and presenter, and is available to provide consultation or training on any of the topics listed above for families or organizations in need of developing a knowledge base about mental health and behaviour.
