from Corner Brook, NL, (and a graduate of Grenfell) I moved away to complete my
graduate studies in clinical psychology.
My theoretical orientation is predominantly cognitive behavioural,
meaning I look at how your thoughts and behaviours affect your feelings. Prior
to coming to Grenfell, I worked at Dalhousie’s Counselling and Psychological
Services Centre in Halifax gaining experience in the assessment and treatment
of a variety of challenges that university
students face (including anxiety, low mood, eating disorders, and
interpersonal/relationship issues, to name a few). However, I also have
experience in the public health care setting and am knowledgeable about
supporting persons with a variety of acute and chronic health conditions (including
persistent pain, organ failure, obesity, MSK injuries and neurological
conditions, including dementia) as well as their family members. In addition to individual assessment and
treatment, I offer workshops and group treatment. I also provide psychoeducational assessments
for individuals with learning disabilities on a fee-for-service basis.
