I have always known I wanted to make a difference in people’s lives. My passion to help others led me to become a teacher and eventually pursue a Masters degree in Psychology. As a registered psychologist in the Grande Prairie area, I am committed to the well-being of all my clients and strive to go above and beyond to cater to their needs.
I have been practicing in the area of education and school psychology since 2008. In addition to being a practicing psychologist I have been a teacher, school mental health therapist, and school administrator.
I specialize in and provide all assessments at Achieve Psychological Services. I focus on providing a clear understanding of the needs of children and creating plans to help teachers meet those needs within the classroom.
