COUNSELLING

Is your child struggling with excessive worry and unwanted, intrusive thoughts? Are they anxious about attending school, hanging out with friends, or not being ‘good enough’? I can help. Using a cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) approach along with exposure and response prevention (ERP), I have experience working with children and their families to alleviate symptoms of OCD, anxiety, depression, and social/emotional regulation.

GIFTED ASSESSMENTS

If you are applying to a gifted program such as Westmount Charter School or GATE in Calgary, a psychological assessment is required. I would love to work with you and your child to uncover their talents, and help them launch to their full potential.

 **Please note: I am now scheduling assessments for the Grade 5-12 Wesmount application cycle, as well as for the GATE Program**

PSYCHO-EDUCATIONAL ASSESSMENT

Are you looking for answers to help explain why your child might be struggling in school? An assessment can help explore cognitive abilities (IQ, memory, processing speed, and more), as well as areas of reading, writing, and math. We can work together to learn more about your child, and put strategies in place for their best future.

Assessment 101

Psychoeducational Assessment

Typically a psychoeducational assessment is requested by parents when they notice their child or teen struggling in some aspect of their academic development.  Teachers may have observed the student in the classroom and brought concerns to the parents attention, or a family doctor may suggest that an assessment should be conducted by a registered child psychologist. 

INTAKE

Information from parents, teachers and other sources will be used as a basis for discovery.

ASSESS

Using the latest in technology and assessment tools, the process is fun and engaging while getting to the heart of your child’s strengths and areas of need. 

ANALYZE

All of the pieces come together to provide an in-depth picture of your child’s cognitive and learning profile, as well as language, attention, behaviour, social, emotional and adaptive functioning as applicable.

RESULTS

A final report with details of the assessment and any diagnosis will be reviewed and presented, along with recommendations to support your child’s success.
