I completed my master’s of science degree in child development at the Institute of Education, University College London and my master’s of science degree in health psychology at City, University of London. I am a member of the Canadian Psychological Association and the Ontario Psychological Association. I have taught university and college courses within Ontario, including courses on child development and clinical psychology at Western University, behaviour disorders in children and adolescents at Fanshawe College, and introductory psychology and developmental psychology at Humber College.
I have provided therapy services for children with autism spectrum disorder and developmental delays at Oakwood Academy in Mississauga. I also provided counselling and feedback to parents and participated in the formulation of students’ education plans at this setting. From my clinical experience I understand the difficulty that children with developmental issues endure and their social, behavioral, and communication challenges.
As a psychometrist I have worked with children, adolescents, and adults providing psychological and psychoeducational assessment services at a private practice in Toronto. I am skilled in conducting a range of assessments, including for learning disabilities, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, autism spectrum disorder, and social-emotional concerns. I have experience identifying intellectual abilities and deficiencies, emotional problems, and behavioural patterns.
At McKenzie Psychology, I provide psychoeducational assessments for children, adolescents, and adults. I enjoy conducting these assessments and focus on the strengths of the individual and the areas that may need support. My approach is filled with empathy, compassion, and patience. As a psychometrist, my goal is to be sensitive to possible anxieties, create a comfortable environment, and make the assessment experience a positive one.
