Clinical interests: About 70% of my clinical practice involves assessment. Referrals are from Court, community services, as well as self-referrals for children, youth, adults, and families. I conduct court-ordered assessments of parenting capacity, parenting time and decision-making, youth justice, mental health, and risk. Other referrals address questions related to neurodevelopmental disorders including fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD). About 15% of my clinical practice involves intervention including individual psychotherapy for a range of referral questions including PTSD, mood, anxiety, and antisocial behaviour. I also conduct family therapy for resist/refuse dynamics following separation/divorce and other problems in family functioning. Finally, about 15% of my clinical practice involves education and workshops on a range of clinical issues.
