Experience

I have experience working in psychiatric hospitals with inpatients and outpatients, a school, and in private practice.  I now work solely in private practice.

Adults: I have experience in the assessment and intervention of a range of symptoms including anxiety, depression, mood instability, relationship difficulties, recovering from grief, loss and trauma, family conflict, managing divorce, stress management, general life transitions, coping with significant change, and the psychological complications associated with drug and alcohol addiction.  I do not do court-required assessments or write court-reports.

Children: I have experience working with children with anxiety, depression, recovering from grief and loss, selective mutism, behavioural problems, anger-management, and social/friendship problems.  I do not do psychometric testing or write psychometric reports.
