Under the supervision of a registered clinical psychologist, I provide individual therapy services to adults as well as psychological and psychoeducational assessments to children and adolescents.
I follow a collaborative and strengths-based approach to psychotherapy. To build and maintain a strong relationship, I create an atmosphere of warm, positive regard and openness to discover interventions that support the client’s growth. Within this context, I offer evidence-based therapy, often relying on cognitive-behavioural and mindfulness-based approaches. If appropriate for the client, I borrow from other approaches, such as experiential and emotionally-focused therapy. All individuals possess unique strengths, abilities, and coping skills, and I vary my therapeutic style according to each client’s circumstances.

I completed my pre-doctoral residency in clinical psychology in Fredericton, New Brunswick, within the Horizon Health Network, where I provided psychotherapy and psycho-diagnostic assessments to inpatient, outpatient, and group therapy clients. As a clinician, I have provided services to culturally and geographically diverse populations of adults, children, and adolescents. In psychotherapy, I have worked with clients to address anxiety, depression, interpersonal problems, post-traumatic stress, grief and loss, and adjustment difficulties. I have used my graduate research training to advance my clinical skills. For example, as part of my thesis, I guided groups of undergraduate participants through a brief mindful relaxation protocol to study the effects of this program on daily life stress.
Through experience within educational, medical, and community-based children’s mental health settings, I have developed a background in the diagnosis of learning, developmental, and behaviour disorders. I use my training in neuropsychology to conceptualize how cognitive abilities relate to brain development, and how they may be affected by a complex medical history. I am intrigued by individual differences in learning and how the discovery of a child’s pattern of strengths and weaknesses can be used to design an individualized program of remediation and therapy.
As a scientist-practitioner, I am committed to lifelong learning. By attending workshops and lectures as well as reading scientific literature on best practices, I maintain my development as a therapist and diagnostician.

Anxiety (Social Anxiety, Generalized Anxiety/Worry, Phobias, Panic)
