BA Psychological Sciences, M.Clinical Psych. MAPS
What is your background?
Through my training I have been able to engage in various opportunities across the community and hospital settings with clients across the lifespan. My primary experiences and interests have been working with children, adolescents, and young adults.
My therapeutic style is predominately informed by Cognitive Behavioural Therapy where I often use a client-centred approach to implement evidence-based strategies that best support the individual. I have worked with young people experiencing a variety of concerns, such as, anxiety, mood, ADHD, Autism, and trauma.
Why do you like working with children and families?
Young people go through countless transitions and navigating them can be a complex and difficult time. I enjoy working with young people and their families to find strategies that can support the whole family system. I find early intervention to be significantly important which is another reason for why I am passionate about working in this space.
What are your strengths?
I value developing a safe and comfortable therapeutic relationship with young people and their families. I hope to create a space where clients feel they can open up and feel comfortable to work through rather difficult topics. I find it important to include multiple stakeholders into treatment for better outcomes for the young person and try my best to uphold clear communication.
It’s also really important to me that I find time to connect regularly with family and friends.
