About

I am a Registered Psychologist with over 18 years of experience working for the Halifax Regional Centre for Education (HRCE) and in private practice. I hold both an M.A. (School Psychology; 2003) and M.Ed. (Special Education; 2008). I currently have spaces available, there is a limited waitlist (approximately one month) at our practice for psycho-educational assessments.
Being child-focused, I utilize my assessment, counselling and consultation skills (i.e., advocacy; behaviour, etc.) to uncover and support my clients’ needs. My diagnostic assessment of learning disabilities, intellectual delays, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and autism pre-screening are comprehensive and detailed.
I feel passionate about working collaboratively with children and families. I take pride in helping clients understand their own strengths and challenges in order to develop evidence-based, practical strategies for both home and school. My therapeutic approach is client-focused but grounded in cognitive-behavioural theory and mindfulness.
