Psychologists’ Association of Alberta
I am a Registered Provisional Psychologist with over ten years of experience working with children, adolescents, families, and adults. I am registered with the College of Alberta Psychologists and am a member of the Canadian Psychological Association. I completed my undergraduate degree at Mount Royal University and my Master of Education Degree (School and Applied Child Psychology) at the University of Calgary. I have worked primarily with children with developmental and behavioural challenges in respite, treatment-based, early intervention facilities, and school-based environments.
Since completing my education, I have gained experience in private practice working at Rocky Mountain Psychological Services. There, I specialized in conducting PsychologicalAssessments, Counselling (i.e., Cognitive Behavioural therapy, Play-based therapy), and Neurofeedback services. Assessments that I developed expertise in include the following: Learning Disabilities, Giftedness, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Mental Health, ADHD, AISH/PDD funding, and full psycho-educational assessments. I use a strength-based lens when completing assessment services, personalizing each assessment conducted and providing empirically-based recommendations. Additionally, I have counselling experience, specializing in fostering strategies and interventions for self-regulation (e.g., emotional regulation, impulsivity).
Through my education at the University of Calgary (M.Ed), practical experience I gained through my internship at the Calgary Board of Education, and my prior experience working in private practice
I have expertise conducting the following assessments:
Full Psychoeducational Assessments (i.e., Cognitive, Academic, Social-Emotional Functioning)
Mental Health/Social-Emotional Functioning (e.g., Depression, Anxiety, behavioural challenges)
ADHD (i.e., Executive Functioning)
Automobile Accident Assessments
AISH/PDD funding (i.e., Cognitive & Adaptive functioning)
Over the past ten years, I have worked in a variety of settings providing services to both children and adolescents (2 - 16 years old). These include:
FSCD contracts (i.e., counselling, consultation) working with children with disabilities (e.g., ASD, ADHD, Traumatic Brain Injury).
Specializing in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
Providing tools to help support children and adolescents diagnosed with ADHD (i.e., Executive Functioning)
Working with children and adolescents who demonstrate elevated symptoms of Anxiety and Depression (e.g., Separation Anxiety, Phobias)
