Having begun my career in mental health as a forensic counsellor working with young offenders, I have a special interest in interventions with youth put at risk. My current clinical and research interests include increasing our understanding of brain-based contributions to functioning for children and youth, and developmental trajectories of mental health. I also have a special interest in identifying and enhancing interventions for individuals with a Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD).
My training and clinical experience include clinical neuropsychology and applied psychology. A registered psychologist, I also maintain a private practice in neuropsychological assessment and gear my clinical work towards assessment that informs intervention and contributes to healthy outcomes for complex populations.
