I am a clinical psychologist and neuropsychologist in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. I work at the IWK Health Centre and I have a private practice. In addition, I am an adjunct assistant professor at Dalhousie University.
At the IWK, I specialize in child and adolescent neuropsychology. I work with youth who have neurological or medical conditions such as epilepsy, brain injury, stroke, hydrocephalus, neuromuscular diseases, genetic disorders, endocrine disorders, and biochemical diseases.
Research is also part of my job at the IWK. I am particularly interested in executive functioning and attention, as these areas are often affected in people with compromised brain functioning and can dramatically affect daily living. Much of my research has focused on children with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD). More recently, I have been working with the Public Health Agency of Canada and other government agencies to help develop and implement FASD assessment and treatment programs in Atlantic Canada.
