I received my doctoral degree in clinical psychology from the University of Ottawa in 2019 after completing my predoctoral residency with the Thames Valley District School Board. I am registered with the College of Psychologists of Ontario to provide services to children, adolescents, and adults. I am also a member of the Canadian Psychological Association and the Ontario Psychological Association. In addition to my work with McKenzie Psychology, I provide psychological services through Old North Psychology, as well as the Thames Valley District School Board.
I have provided psychological services for children, adolescents, and adults in a variety of settings, including community mental health organizations, school boards, private practices, and a specialized acute-care hospital. I have experience working with a range of presenting issues, including anxiety and mood disorders, behavioural and emotion-regulation challenges, complex trauma and post-traumatic stress, relational and attachment difficulties, grief, learning disorders, and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. My services include assessment, psychotherapy, as well as parenting guidance.
My therapeutic approach is integrative in nature and entirely patient-centered. I firmly believe that the foundation for growth and change begins with a strong therapeutic relationship, which is prioritized in the work that I do with my patients. I am inspired everyday by the resiliency and determination of the individuals with whom I work, and I am truly grateful for the opportunity to walk alongside them for part of their journey.
