About

As a member of the College of Psychologists, the Ontario Association of Psychological Associates and the Ontario and Canadian Psychological Associations, I provide diagnostic assessment and counselling services to children and adolescents. I have over 15 years of experience working with a wide variety of individuals within both the medical/hospital and school settings.

Some of the challenges I am experienced working with include anxiety disorders, depression, autism and disruptive behaviour disorders such as attention deficit and oppositional defiance. In addition, my strengths are in dealing with issues of self-esteem, relationships, parenting, grief and loss and stress management.

I have been published in well-respected journals such as the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Developmental Neuropsychology and the Journal of Developmental and Physical Disabilities, presented papers at professional conferences and have conducted numerous presentations within a school forum.

I maintain knowledge and implementation of both clinical and research initiatives for optimal service delivery. My orientations are cognitive-behavioural, dialectical, solution-focused, utilizing mindfulness and acceptance techniques, strength based resilience methods and positive psychology.
