I received my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec. During my graduate training, I worked at several hospital settings and clinics, acquiring experience in assessment and therapy (e.g., Montreal Neurological Institute, Jewish General Hospital, Applied Psychology Centre). I completed my psychology residency at St. Josephs’ Healthcare in Hamilton, Ontario, gaining additional experience with mood, anxiety, psychotic disorders, and substance abuse. Following my residency, I worked at the Anxiety Treatment and Research Centre at St. Joseph’s Healthcare.
Since 2008, I have worked at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario as a counsellor at the Student Wellness Centre. I provide individual and group counselling to a diverse student population dealing with a variety of issues. In addition, I have developed several workshops and treatment group programs, including a group for individuals dealing with social anxiety, and another to increase tolerance for uncertainty.
I am also a facilitator for a first year course in the Bachelor of Health Sciences (Honours) Program at McMaster University. In this role, I work with students as they further develop skills in areas such as problem solving, personal awareness, communication, and collaboration.
I am a licensed psychologist in the province of Ontario and a member of the College of Psychologists of Ontario. As a regulated professional, I am legally required to deliver professional services competently and ethically.
After many years working in hospital, clinic, and educational settings, I have opened up my own private practice to serve Brantford and the surrounding community. I am excited about this new chapter in my life.
