Psychologist

I focus on helping students (ages 4 to 20) by assessing what existing barriers may be getting in the way of their natural propensity to learn. This is done through the use of psychological & psychoeducational assessments aimed at comprehensively looking at a student’s various strengths, weaknesses, and specific learning profiles.

Clinical experience

I am a trained School and Clinical Child Psychologist with a passion and concentrated training in understanding learning disabilities and barriers students may have to learning and growth in life.

My focus is on fostering a gentle and compassionate atmosphere for parents and their children, while utilizing psychological testing to help provide them with information and recommendations on next steps in their development. Regardless of what the testing results reveal, I offer recommendations to help life-long learning for each student. I believe in a strength-based approach, identifying specific evidence-based interventions and approaches that can be used at school and at home.

I have worked in a number of capacities, including educational clinics, hospitals, not-for-profit organizations, and the Ottawa Carleton District School Board. I spent many years working with those with special needs, particularly autism and behavioural-emotional struggles. In my personal life, I am a huge nature enthusiast and I spend a great deal of my time hiking, skiing, and exploring the beautiful Ottawa-Gatineau area.

I look forward to working with you and your child in the future,
