I am a Registered Psychologist (she/her) who specializes in working with children, youth, young adults, and parents. I received my Ph.D. in School and Clinical Child Psychology from the University of Alberta in 2020, and completed my pre-doctoral residency in Clinical Psychology with the London Clinical Psychology Residency Consortium in London, Ontario. I have trained and worked in a variety of clinical settings in Alberta and Ontario, including community mental health agencies, youth residential treatment, children’s hospitals, schools, and private practice. In addition to my work providing assessment with Nexus Psychology, I am also privileged to work for the Hinton Indigenous Friendship Centre. I currently divide my time between Edmonton, AB and Hinton, AB, and am pleased to offer services to those living in the West Yellowhead corridor. I work primarily with individuals presenting with neurodevelopmental disorders (e.g., ADHD, FASD, Intellectual Disabilities, learning disabilities), anxiety and mood disorders, developmental and complex trauma, and parent-child relationship challenges.

My path in life wasn’t always clear to me. During my childhood, I tended to fleet from one fanciful career idea to the next. Perhaps I would be a world-renowned journalist or maybe a five-star chef. At one point I was convinced I would live on a compound and make organic soaps. While none of those plans came to fruition, sitting in my first undergraduate psychology class, something “clicked”. I was hooked and spent the next several years pursuing all things psychology.

This was the cornerstone to my specialized assessment training, particularly in assessing and diagnosing individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder.
