About Me/Bio
I am a licensed Psychologist with a specialisation in Neuropsychology. My primary focus is on working with children and adolescents, ranging from early childhood to late adolescence. I provide comprehensive psychological and neuropsychological assessments, complemented by tailored intervention and training programmes. In my practice, I utilise a diverse array of interventions designed to enhance children and adolescents’ social skills, emotional regulation, and organisational capabilities. Beyond working directly with children, I also collaborate closely with parents, inclusion teams, therapists and physicians to ensure a holistic approach.

How I can help you
My years working with children and adolescents within the fields of neurodevelopment and mental health have shaped my practice to address recurrent needs:

– Support with Understanding: Through psychoeducation, I strive to equip families with knowledge. This not only aids in understanding but also becomes an advocacy tool at home, in schools, and throughout the community.

– Support with Parenting & Parental Guidance: Parenting a child with unique needs can be both rewarding and challenging. I’m here to offer guidance, sharing insights and strategies to best support your child’s journey.

– Support with Social Skills: Nurturing social skills is crucial. I employ research-backed programmes, like ‘PEERS’ for adolescents, designed to bolster these essential life skills.

– Support with Emotional Regulation: Encouraging a child’s self-regulation and emotional control is vital for their wellbeing. Techniques from ‘The Zones of Regulation’ guide my approach here.

– Support with Structure and Efficiency: Assisting in developing daily living skills and instilling organisational methods ensures a more structured and efficient day-to-day life.
What I say to people who feel nervous or have concerns about therapy/assessment
When families come to me for an assessment, I always emphasise that while we gather measurable data, the true essence of a child goes beyond what can simply be counted. There are qualities that metrics can’t capture, and that remain profoundly meaningful in the life of a child and their family.
What measures I use in assessments
I utilise leading, validated, and reliable standardised assessment tools and rating scales for children and adolescents. This encompasses Intellectual/Cognitive tools such as the WISC, WNV, and WPPSI; Neuropsychological instruments like the NEPSY and D-KEFS; Social Communication scales such as the ADI and ADOS; and Developmental measures including the Bayley and Mullen.

For French-speaking children and adolescents, I also employ the corresponding French-standardised tools.

I would love to connect with you!
