She completed her Bachelor of Science, Specialization in Psychology degree in Edmonton at the University of Alberta and subsequently moved to Toronto where she completed her Master’s degree at the University of Toronto. Moving through life as a bicultural person has made Elizabeth mindful of one’s belongingness to different groups and communities and how that might influence individuals’ experiences, worldviews, and self-view. She carries this awareness to inform her psychotherapy work. Elizabeth believes being a psychologist is an honour and strives to support her clients’ journey toward better mental health and overall well-being.
