I obtained my doctoral degree in clinical psychology at Ryerson University and completed my predoctoral residency with the London Clinical Psychology Residency Consortium. Prior to pursuing my PhD in clinical psychology, I completed an MSc at the London School of Economics in Health, Community and Development and obtained a Certificate in Global Mental Health from the Harvard Program in Refugee Trauma (Harvard School of Public Health). I am currently registered for supervised practice with the College of Psychologists of Ontario to provide services for adults, couples and families under the supervision of Dr. Sandra McKenzie and Dr. Kathryn Dance. I am a member of the Canadian Psychological Association, Ontario Psychological Association, and International Society for Traumatic Stress Studies.
I have worked with adults, couples, adolescents, children, and families across a variety of settings, including several hospital and community-based settings. I have experience providing assessment and treatment for a range of presenting issues, including mood and anxiety concerns, behavioural and emotional difficulties, attachment disturbances, psychosis, alcohol and substance-use difficulties, and life and family stressors. I have a particular interest in providing treatment for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and complex trauma, with a special focus on providing trauma-informed care for expecting and new mothers, and Canadian Veterans.
In addition to my clinical work with McKenzie Psychology, I am currently completing a postdoctoral fellowship in PTSD and implementation science on a joint project between Ryerson University and Stanford University.
I bring a systems perspective to my clinical work, understanding that we all have different starting points and circumstances. I welcome the opportunity to work alongside individuals from all backgrounds, identities, and abilities. I strive to be genuine, curious, and collaborative in my therapeutic approach. Watching clients learn to harness internal wisdom to facilitate healing, improve resilience and achieve meaningful change is a privilege and the most rewarding aspect of my clinical work.
