About

My primary areas of clinical expertise lie in assessment of adult mental health, and addiction. I offer gold standard assessment techniques (approaches proven to be effective through research) for a variety of referral questions including psychodiagnostic assessments to clarify and confirm mental health and addiction diagnoses; and psychoeducational assessment to assist individuals struggling with academic performance. I also offer assessment for special circumstances such as Veterans Affairs mental health assessments and legal cases.
I hold a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Calgary. I completed a pre-doctoral clinical residency at Yale University, and a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Alberta. I am also an Assistant Professor of Clinical Psychology & Psychiatry at Dalhousie University, where I have an active research program in comorbid mental health.
I work with clients in a tailored way, unique to each person, to try to understand how they can have more fulfilling and happy lives. To that end, all of my assessments include tailored recommendations to address the client's needs and create healing and new possibilities.
