Biography

Hello! Thanks for checking out my personal profile. I recently joined the Psychology department at Athabasca University (AU) in 2016. Previous to this, I have taught within AU’s Graduate Centre for Applied Psychology and University of Calgary’s Master of Counselling program. I have also supervised numerous students completing their graduate practicum work in counselling and assessment. Professionally, I am a Registered Psychologist and work primarily with children, youth, and their families. I am also a member of a number of professional associations.

As a child psychologist, my research interests include Autism, ADHD, learning disabilities, executive functioning, resiliency, childhood anxiety, parenting, collaborative problem solving, and school-based intervention. My research has been funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC).
