I completed my doctoral degree in school and applied child psychology at Western University and my predoctoral residency at the London Child, Youth, Family, and Forensic Psychology Consortium (forensic child and adolescent track). I am registered with the College of Psychologists as a psychologist authorized for supervised practice to provide services for children and adolescents. I am also a member of the Ontario Psychological Association.
Through my training, I have provided psychological assessment and intervention services in both French and English. My experiences have varied across several settings including schools, community mental health agencies, not for profit agencies, private practice, and youth justice. I have been fortunate to provide services for children and adolescents with a wide range of difficulties including mood and anxiety disorders, developmental (complex) trauma, neurodevelopmental disorders (like autism, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, intellectual disabilities, and fetal alcohol spectrum disorder), learning disorders, substance use disorders, and emerging personality disorders. I have also provided consultation to parents, educators, and mental health service providers.
At McKenzie Psychology, I provide assessment and treatment services for children and adolescents under the supervision of Dr. Sandra McKenzie. I prioritize using a relationship-oriented approach to therapy and assessment. Bringing curiosity, empathy, and compassion to my work, I aim to create a safe and trusting environment for patients to explore and understand their thoughts, emotions, and behaviours. Trained in CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy), ACT (acceptance and commitment therapy), DBT (dialectical behaviour therapy), and CFT (compassion-focused therapy), I believe in tailoring therapy to the needs of each individual rather than using a one-size-fits-all approach.
