ADHD, Autism, Psychoeducational Assessments: In my Burnaby office I provide testing for ADHD, autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and psychoeducational assessments. This includes diagnostic testing for college students seeking accomodations and children seeking provincial autism funding or special educational services through their school district. I am a registered behaviour interventionist (ACT-RASP) for children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder/Asperger's disorder. Additionally I have worked as a provincial consultant for autism and behaviour disorders, as a behaviour management specialist for school districts and as a school psychologist and classroom teacher of special education.

I provide systemic, cognitive behaviour (CBT) and Gottman based therapy for couples and families. A major focus of my work is with couples dealing with ADHD or autism spectrum disorder.
