I obtained my doctoral degree in clinical psychology with a specialization in child and adolescent clinical psychology at the University of Windsor. I completed my predoctoral residency at the Regina Qu’Appelle Health Region in Regina, Saskatchewan. I am registered as a psychologist with the College of Psychologists of Ontario to provide services for children, adolescents, and families. I am a member of the Canadian Psychological Association and the Ontario Psychological Association.
I have worked with children, adolescents, and families across a variety of settings, including the Windsor Regional Children’s Centre, Maryvale Adolescent and Family Services, the Children’s Aid Society of Windsor-Essex, the Psychological Services and Research Centre at the University of Windsor, St. Clair Child and Youth Services, Regina Child and Youth Mental Health Services, and the Children’s Program at the Wascana Rehabilitation Centre. Throughout my numerous clinical experiences, I have provided assessment and treatment for a range of difficulties, including mood and anxiety disorders, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, behaviour and emotion regulation problems, trauma, attachment disturbances and disorders, family conflict, and relationship difficulties.
In my clinical work, I endeavour to create a safe and welcoming space and to develop secure and trusting relationships with my patients. I am continually amazed by the hope, perseverance, and resiliency shown by children, youth, and families in working through and rising above life challenges, and am honoured to be a part of that process.
