During my time in Australia, I worked at Mirikai, an in-patient drug rehabilitation centre where I provided psychological services including assessment, formulation, treatment to individuals with both addiction and mental illness. I worked with the Early Psychosis Team (Queensland Health, Australia), where I provided psychological services to clients, between the ages of 15 and 25, experiencing their first episode of psychosis; including substance-induced, bipolar, schizophrenia, schizoaffective, and depression with psychotic features. I am a flexible and open-minded practitioner who respects the uniqueness of every individual.
I am a Psychologist (Cand.Reg) with clinical interests and experience in the assessment and treatment of anxiety disorders (adult, adolescents), depression, addiction, chronic pain management, posttraumatic stress disorder, and psychosis. I am proficient in various cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, brief solution-focused, and motivational-interviewing techniques.
