Types of Therapy


Are you are feeling anxious, depressed or burnt out? Or is your child struggling to manage their
big emotions? Have you wondered if it has to be that way? I believe therapy is an effective way
to gain control and to improve mental health so that you or your child can thrive in daily life. I
start with understanding where you or your child are now and collaboratively, we set goals and
develop a plan to get you where you want to be. I am passionate about my work and am
committed to helping people work on their mental health and live a full life. My goal is to provide
a safe, inclusive place where you feel heard and understood.

I am a Clinical Psychologist registered with the College of Psychologists of Ontario to work with
children, teens, and adults. I opened a psychology clinic in 2014, which became Kitchener
Psychology Centre and is now Reflections Mental Health Group. I obtained a Ph.D. in Clinical
Psychology with an Applied Developmental Emphasis from the University of Guelph.  My clinical
training included work at a local school board, the Selective Mutism Service at McMaster
Children’s Hospital, a pre-doctoral internship at Hamilton Health Sciences, and placements at
kidsLINK and the Centre for Psychological Services at the University of Guelph. I am also an
adjunct faculty member at the University of Waterloo, where I supervise clinical psychology
students as part of their training. 

I live in Ayr with my husband and three sons. I enjoy spending time in nature, hanging out with
my family, friends, and many pets, and cheering on my sons in their sports.
