I am a Clinical and Forensic Psychologist in the province of Nova Scotia where I provide evidence based assessment and treatment services to adolescents and adults. I have extensive experience conducting comprehensive forensic assessments, as well as psychological assessments.
In therapy, I primarily use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) to help people identify and change patterns of thinking or behaviour that are causing them pain or distress. I also draw upon Motivational Interviewing and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy to inform my work with clients. I believe the cornerstone of effective therapy is the creation of a warm non-judgemental environment where clients build intrinsic motivation to make meaningful changes that will improve their quality of life. My practice is LGBTQ positive.
