Clinical interests: My clinical interests are in the neuropsyhological assessment of adults with neurological disorders, particularly epilepsy. In my role as a Clinical Neuropsychologist in the LHSC Epilepsy Program at University Hospital, I provide consultations for inpatient and outpatient adults with known or suspected seizure disorders, most of whom are being considered for, or have had, surgery to treat their seizures. Patients may also have other concurrent or past neurological, medical and/or emotional issues. I use a flexible battery approach to assessment examining multiple aspects of functioning (cognitive, motor, mood) to evaluate patterns of neuropsychological strengths and weaknesses. Assessments are consultation-based within a multi-disciplinary team for the purpose of aiding in diagnosis, likely prognosis, and treatment planning.
