Clinical and School Psychologist
I am a registered clinical psychologist who provides assessment and therapy services to children, adolescents, young adults, and their families. For assessment, I have a particular interest in Learning Disabilities, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and Gifted Learners. For therapy, I offer services to children and youth who struggle with a variety of challenges including anxiety, depression, and interpersonal problems. I am away on a health-related leave until fall 2020.

In therapy, I work from two related models: cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), a type of therapy that looks at the relationship between thoughts, feelings, and behaviours and; acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), an active form of therapy where clients explore what is important to them and learn skills to handle difficult thoughts and feelings more effectively.
As a clinical psychologist working primarily with children and adolescents, I have been part of the Centrepointe Professional Services team since 2011. Prior to this, I maintained a private practice in Orleans, Ontario and worked with the Regional Assessment and Resource Centre’s (RARC) Mobile Assessment Team.

On several occasions I have taught the third year “Exceptional Children” course at Carleton University.
