Clinical interests: Within the Thames Valley District School Board (TVDSB), I am currently overseeing the boards Mental Health Transitions Classrooms. These classrooms are designated to support some of the TVDSBs most complex and vulnerable youth who are coming out of treatment and reintegrating back into the school system. Within this role, I work very closely with teachers, educational assistants, behaviour analysts, and social workers to ensure that we are providing students with empirically supported interventions. Many of our students' experience co-morbid psychiatric and psychological disorders (eg. anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, conduct disorder, oppositional defiance disorder, etc.) along with multifaceted social-emotional and behavioural difficulties. Given teh complex needs of our students, I tend to adopt an eclectic approach to intervention. More specifically, I find myself using a number of clinical techniques and modalities including cognitive behavioural therapy, behaviour modification, and solution-focused approaches to help equip students with the requisite skills to address their challenges and strive towards greater mental wellness.
Topics for workshops, seminars: Aspects related to the college of psychologists registration process; Roles and responsibilities of school psychologists; Temporal effects of antecedent exercise on students disruptive behaviours.
