Clinical experience

I am a clinical psychologist with over 10 years of providing psychotherapy and psychological assessment services to children, adolescents and adults. During my Pre-Doctoral Residency in Clinical Psychology, I completed rotations in Adult, Pediatric and Health Psychology at various hospitals in Edmonton, AB. Since obtaining my doctorate, I have years of experience working with multidisciplinary rehabilitation organizations helping clients with vocational planning and return to work, as well as providing various assessment and psychotherapy services to people in hospitals, schools, and in the community. I have also worked as a psychologist for the Ottawa Carleton District School Board (OCDSB) assessing the challenges that school children and adolescents have that impede their academic success, as well as giftedness. I continue my professional development through attending conferences, workshops, and reading current scientific literature.
