I am very passionate about understanding the brain and I am fortunate enough to work in a field that allows me to do this. My clinical and academic interests are related to this. I provide Paediatric neuropsychology clinical supervision for student neuropsychologists. I am also currently pursuing a PhD Project that aims to understand the cognitive effects of violence during development.

In my psychotherapeutic practice, I work with survivors of brain injury. I start with psychoeducation to help you and your family understand why you are experiencing specific changes. I also focus on equipping you with tools and strategies to help you adapt to cognitive disabilities to improve your overall level of functioning and quality of life.
Some of the changes that come with brain injury include, difficulties with paying attention, finding words when speaking, memory problems, brain fog, difficulties with problem-solving, judgement, planning, self-monitoring, and awareness.

Lastly, I provide on-going psychotherapy using a psychodynamic approach that focuses on helping you gain insights into your life and current problems. Together we can review certain life factors in therapy including emotions, thoughts, early-life experiences, and beliefs. Through this, recurring patterns may emerge and where they are distractive, we can work on changing them.
