Registered Psychologist with the College of Alberta Psychologists - License No. 5313
Psychologists’ Association of Alberta

I am a registered psychologist with over seven years of clinical experience serving primary children & adolescents and couples. I work extensively with families and individuals with issues that are within my scope of practice. I have been involved with children & adolescents for over fifteen years as coach, teacher, and psychologist. A strong interest of mine is supporting families and couples struggling with communication, conflict, and problem solving. Another interest is supporting adults/children with ADHD, Autism (Aspergers), and executive functioning issues.

 

I have obtained a number of therapeutic and assessment skills over the past several years. I have been a Clinical Lead at Kids Uncomplicated and a Psychologist with Rocky Mountain Psychology and Willow Creek Psychology. I have also over 1600 hours of training in providing evidence-based assessment and counselling to adults, families, couples, and children/adolescents.
