PhD Candidate in Clinical Psychology, Western University

I am a PhD Candidate in clinical psychology at Western University. My area of expertise is pediatric sleep problems. My masters work focused on help-seeking for pediatric sleep problems and my dissertation work focuses on the developmental importance of napping among preschool children. My most recent publication is a systematic review of the predictors of behavioural sleep problems in children 1-10 years old.

In my clinical training, I provide psychotherapy and psychological assessments to children, adolescents, and adults. I am knowledgeable in treatments for anxiety, depression, trauma-related disorders, behavioural problems (e.g., ADHD, opposition), and sleep problems.
