Dr. Graham has dedicated the majority of her 12+year practice to the treatment of Addiction & Mental illness while developing and implementing Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) acupuncture-based programs for various public and private agencies in B.C.
Her vast experience in the Addictions field comes from years of dedicated personal study as well as hands-on work in various clinical settings including community drop-in centers (DTES), residential treatment programs, inpatient and outpatient hospital settings (LGH Psychiatric Services, Hope Centre, BC Women’s Hospital), and clinical research.
Dr. Graham’s areas of expertise include the treatment of trauma and PTSD, anxiety disorders, various mental illnesses (schizophrenia, bi-polar, depression, etc.) drug & alcohol addiction/withdrawal, detox, post-acute withdrawal syndrome and sleep disorders.
In March of 2014, Dr. Graham was recognized by the BC government and appointed as a professional member to the Healthcare Practitioners Special Committee for Audit by the Ministry of Health, and was re-appointed to this position in March 2015 for an additional two year term.
As an active member of her profession, Dr. Graham also works closely with her profession’s regulatory body (CTCMA) on projects surrounding practitioner competency and public safety, focusing on the development and advancement of TCM in BC. In addition to this, she also sits on the Program Advisory Committee for Kwantlen University’s TCM program, mentors students in a clinical setting, acts as editor-in-chief for a Canadian TCM magazine, and runs a successful private practice.
