Concussion management: I am part of the health care team at the Sport Medicine clinic at Carleton university, where I collaborate with the doctors, physiotherapists and psychiatrists in providing concussion management, especially post concussion syndrome (PCS) to athletes and members of the community.
Sport Psychology: I help athletes enhance performance by using evidence based strategies in overcoming obstacles and barriers. These include, but not limited to, improving attentional focus, managing anxiety, visualization and goal setting, motivation and team building and improving overall well-being.
Psychotherapy: Psychotherapy involves developing a safe and trusting therapeutic relationship with the therapist, in order to work collaboratively in overcoming problematic behaviours, understanding distressing thoughts and managing difficult emotions. Depending on client needs, I use different therapeutic approaches, such as cognitive-behavioural therapy, ACT, psychodynamic therapy, MBSR, IPT and existential and humanistic, and supportive therapy.
ADHD assessments: A conduct adult ADHD assessments. Information is gathered through multiple sources, such as self-report symptoms, rating scales/questionnaires, clinical interview which involves historical gathering of information (e.g., developmental history), behavioural observations, family and trusted people who complete questionnaires based on their observations, etc. A detailed assessment of the above information produces a written report and a feedback session. The number of hours required for this process varies between 7-9 hours and can be completed within 5-6 weeks. Please contact me if you have any questions.
Psychodiagnostic assessments: Clients are referred by lawyers, insurers, health care professionals and other third parties for specific Independent Psychodiagnostic Evaluations.
Psychodiagnostic testing describes the process by a psychologist or psychological associate using different scientific measures and procedures to determine if the client has a psychological disorder.
