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.
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.
