I am a Registered Clinical Psychologist in Private Practice and Clinician-Scientist at the Child Youth and Family Services at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). I work with children and youth (and their families) challenged with a diverse array of mental and behavioural health challenges including ADHD, oppositional behaviour, anger control difficulties, school related difficulties, anxiety (e.g., Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Social Anxiety etc.), depression, physical abuse, sexual abuse, neglect, and adjustment difficulties. My therapeutic orientation is primarily Cognitive Behavioural (CBT) which allows me to provide services that are based in research evidence, and are client and family-centred. I conduct detailed psychoeducational and cognitive assessments as well as detailed social-emotional and behavioural assessments.

I am available for weekend appointments.
