I returned to school in my late twenties and began with a B.A. Honours in Psychology and left with a PhD in psychology from Carleton University. My research centred around the areas of personality and social psychology.
Following university I worked for over a decade for the federal government in various policy research positions in several departments. With the downsizing of the government I made the decision to leave the government and returned to school. 2015 I completed a Masters of Arts in Counselling Psychology and opened my private practice in October, 2015.
