I am a neuropsychologist in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I own and operate a private practice that specializes in the assessment and treatment of children, adolescents, adults, and families.
Over the past 21 years I have worked in several major hospitals and community settings in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, and Nova Scotia. I am currently a staff neuropsychologist at the IWK Health Centre, a Clinical Associate at Dalhousie University, and a former member of the executive committee of the Association of Psychologists of Nova Scotia (APNS).
As a neuropsychologist, I conduct comprehensive assessments in children and adults who have fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) or fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS), traumatic brain injury (TBI), attention deficit/ hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and learning disabilities (e.g., dyslexia, school struggles). I also have extensive experience with medical conditions such as stroke, tumour, cerebral palsy, spina bifida, multiple sclerosis, neurofibromatosis, epilepsy, and more.
I routinely conduct independent medical evaluations (IME) and medical-legal assessments for insurance companies, lawyers, employers, and the worker’s compensation board (WCB).
I also provide evidence-based therapy services for those struggling with anxiety (e.g., fears, phobias, worry), depression, grief, behaviour problems, family conflict, and adjusting to changes (e.g., divorce, change of schools).
