Faculty and Supervisors

Core Faculty include registered psychologists who provide supervision on major rotations.  Many core faculty sit on the Residency Program Training Committee, and all are involved in teaching didactic seminars.

Adjunct Faculty include psychologists currently working under supervised practice or who are less directly involved in clinical activities or resident supervision, psychometrists and psychological associates, as well as other individuals from a variety of disciplines (e.g., medicine, social work).  They are also involved in teaching didactic seminars to psychology residents and in some cases, provide clinical and research supervision.

Professional Background

I received my Ph.D. in 1997 from the University of British Columbia, and completed my residency at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), in Toronto and then was a post-doctoral fellow under Aaron T. Beck at the University of Pennsylvania.  I am a Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences and a Clinical Consultant in the Ontario Structured Psychotherapy Program. My research and clinical interests are in CBT and quality improvement in mental health care service provision. Lately I’m fascinated with what makes CBT really sing and how to teach this to learners.

More About Me

I’m a first-generation European immigrant to Canada, and also recognize that I’ve had a lot of privilege as a result. To try to make up for that I’ve tried to go out of my way to be an ally to people who find themselves in a position where they deserve more power and justice including women fleeing domestic violence and health for first nations. Personally, and unfortunately, I also have an appreciation for really bad reality TV, internal combustion engines, and I’m first in line for any buffet. If you didn’t like me I’d introduce you to my children in order to redeem myself just a little.

Professional Background

I received my Ph.D. in 2005 from the University of Waterloo, and completed a clinical internship at Baycrest Centre for Geriatric Care and a postdoctoral fellowship in the Schizophrenia Program at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health and Psychiatry Department, University of Toronto. I was employed as a psychologist in the Schizophrenia Program at the CAMH from 2006 to 2007 and then joined the Schizophrenia & Community Integration Service and Clinical Neuropsychology Service at St. Joseph’s Healthcare. I am privileged to have spent most of my clinical career working with individuals with schizophrenia and other psychotic-spectrum illnesses who often face significantly more systemic barriers and stigma in the mental health system compared to those struggling with other mental health issues. This has translated into developing greater appreciation for the necessity of advocacy in the work we do as clinical psychologists and is something that I incorporate into my teaching and clinical supervision. My therapeutic approach is CBT and interpersonally informed and I am actively involved in IPT supervision and teaching within the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neuroscience at McMaster University, where I hold a full-time academic appointment.

More About Me

I was born in Eastern Europe and grew up in Toronto. In my spare time, I try to practice self-care that includes reading, gardening, cooking and regular yoga practice that helps me to feel more balanced, healthy, and accessible to my family, friends, students, and clients.

Professional Background

I received my PhD in clinical psychology in 1994 from Queen’s University.  I completed my residency training at Hotel Dieu Hospital in Kingston, Ontario where I went on to set up a group-based CBT treatment program for adolescents with eating disorders. I moved to St. Joseph’s Healthcare in 1996 and in 2000 established an outpatient program for patients with eating disorders where I am now clinical lead. I am also an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences at McMaster University and an associate of the Department of Psychology, Neuroscience, and Behaviour where I supervise both undergraduate and graduate students. I also hold a number of positions at the provincial level: I am on the steering committee for the provincial adult eating disorder programs; the steering committee for Eating Disorders Ontario; and am a clinical advisor for the provincial Eating Disorder Promotion, Prevention and Early Intervention initiative.  I have written treatment manuals for CBT group-based treatment of eating disorders which are used across the provincial eating disorders programs, particularly the specialized treatment for Binge Eating Disorder. My research interests are broadly concerned with understanding risk for and treatment of eating disorders, with a particular interest in understanding factors that impact treatment outcomes for individuals with eating disorders.

More About Me

I identify as a White female of both French and Scottish heritage. I was born in Montreal and grew up living internationally, moving to the Caribbean Islands, Europe, Asia and the United States and returning to Canada to go to university. It delights me that I now live in a part of Canada where past generations of my family lived – makes me feel like I have roots! I live just south of Guelph with my husband (and dog!) in an historic limestone farmhouse where we raised our three boys. I am obsessed with gardening, love hiking, dabble in watercolour painting, piano and enjoy spending time with family and friends.

I earned a B.A. from the University of Iowa in 2000 and M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in Clinical Psychology at the State University of New York at Binghamton in 2004 and 2006. I completed a clinical internship in both Clinical and Neuropsychology at the Medical University of South Carolina in 2005-2006, followed by a two-year postdoctoral fellowship specializing in Neuropsychology at the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center through Harvard Medical School from 2006-2008. I have been board certified in Neuropsychology through the American Board of Professional Psychology (ABPP) since 2012. Prior to joining SJHH, I worked in both clinical and neuropsychology roles in independent practice, as a faculty member in the department of psychology at the University of Georgia, and as a staff neuropsychologist for a major medical centre in Atlanta, Georgia. I am passionate about promoting post-graduate training in Neuropsychology in Canada, and am the director of the Neuropsychology postdoctoral fellowship program here at St. Joes, serve as a member on the ABCN Canadian sub-committee, and the co-chair of the AACN Board Certification Promotion committee, and I am also a mentor for AACN. I serve on the SJHH EDI Council and actively acknowledge the many barriers to performing culturally proficient evaluations in Neuropsychological and Psychological assessment. I have an appreciation for a holistic approach to assessment, treatment, and intervention, which actively considers medical, neurological, psychological, cultural, and behavioural factors as collectively impacting the wellness of an individual. My clinical and research interests focus on this perspective in applied clinical contexts, particularly pertaining to interventions and assessment within acute inpatient psychiatry. 

More About Me

I'm a first-generation University graduate.  In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family and two dogs.

Professional Background

After completing my graduate training in psychology at the University of Toronto and internship at the Toronto General Hospital Eating Disorder Program, I began a post doctoral fellowship at the Anxiety Treatment and Research Clinic at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton and found my work home.  After several years as a staff psychologist in the Anxiety Treatment and Research Clinic, I took on the role of Manager of the Anxiety Treatment Research Clinic, Clinical Neuropsychology Services, Centralized Psychology Services and Eating Disorders Clinic.  More recently, I took on a higher leadership role as Clinical Director of a portfolio of programs including CONNECT Central Intake, Mood Disorders Program, Anxiety Treatment and Research Clinic, Eating Disorders Clinic, Clinical Neuropsychology Service, Nunavut Virtual Mental Health Clinic, and the Youth Wellness Clinic as well as the Ontario Structured Psychotherapy Program for the Ontario West Region. I am also a Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences at McMaster University where I am Academic Head of the Anxiety Division and Co-Lead of the Department Mentoring Program. My research interests are primarily in the area of anxiety and cognitive behavior therapy. Current projects that are funded by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research include the validation of the Diagnostic Assessment Research Tool (DART) and a randomized controlled trial of mindfulness based cognitive therapy vs cognitive behaviour therapy for obsessive compulsive disorder.

More About Me

Professional Background

I received my Ph.D. from the University of Waterloo in 1999 and then completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Rotman Research Institute, Baycrest Centre and my clinical licensure in neuropsychology at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto. I began my career as a clinician-scientist in the Mood and Anxiety Disorders Program at CAMH. After starting a family in Hamilton I was fortunate to obtain a psychologist position in the Schizophrenia Service at St. Joseph’s in 2005, and eventually went on to become clinical lead for our centralized neuropsychology service (CNS). I am also an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences where I am currently Director of Interprofessional Faculty Development and Academic Lead, Schizophrenia Division.  I hold affiliate faculty positions in the Neuroscience Graduate Program and the Department of Psychology, Neuroscience and Behaviour where I supervise several clinical graduate students and sit on a number of dissertation committees.  My scholarly activity has focused on program development, quality improvement, and mentorship. I have held a number of educational leadership roles and more recently hospital leadership positions related to implementation of quality care standards for adults with schizophrenia.  My research focuses on the interplay between neurobiological, affective and cognitive processes in functional outcomes in persons with schizophrenia and other serious mental illness.

More About Me

I identify as White with Scottish and Irish ancestry. I was born and raised in a small town in the Ottawa Valley, and made my home in Southern Ontario after moving here in 1996 for graduate studies.  I am a married mom to 2 teens and live on a hobby farm west of Hamilton with my family, 2 dogs and 12 chickens. I do what I can to protect our natural environment and I love to garden, make preserves, bird-watch and visit family.

Professional Background

I completed my pre-doctoral residency training at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton and received a PhD in Clinical Psychology from Concordia University in 2011. I am a psychologist at the Anxiety Treatment and Research Clinic at St. Joe’s, where I am involved in clinical service, research, teaching, and supervision. I also hold an appointment of Associate Professor (FT) in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences at McMaster University, and I am the Psychotherapy Associate Lead for the Psychiatry Residency Program in this department. I am also a member of the Psychology Residency Committee and the Coordinator of the Psychology Residency Seminar Series. My clinical interests include assessment and cognitive behavioural treatment (CBT) of anxiety and related disorders, and my research investigates treatment outcomes and mechanisms in CBT for anxiety and related disorders, as well factors related to the phenomenology of these disorders. I have also been involved in the development and ongoing validation of the Diagnostic Assessment Research Tool (DART), a semi-structured psychodiagnostic interview developed with colleagues at St. Joe’s and McMaster.

More About Me

I was born and raised along the beautiful Adriatic Coast in Croatia and immigrated to Canada in later childhood. I have lived in many places in Ontario, completed my graduate studies in Montreal, QC, and finally settled in Hamilton when I came to St. Joe's to complete my residency. I love life in the Hammer, where I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family, going to local coffee shops, and honing my novice vegetable gardening skills.

Professional Background

I’m a Clinical and Forensic Psychologist in the Forensic Psychiatry Program at St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton and an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences at McMaster University. I’ve worked with individuals in the forensic/correctional systems for 20+ years, and I have particular interests in sexual violence, risk assessment and forensic rehabilitation. In terms of teaching and training, you may like to know about specific clinical interests emphasized in supervision with me. I like to focus on client feedback, sound therapy skills in the forensic domain (e.g. responsivity issues), and all aspects of sexual aggression assessment and treatment.

More About Me

On a more personal note, I’m a first generation Canadian of European ancestry and I love gardening, travel, and spending time with my family and friends (including four-legged ones).

Professional Background

I received my Ph.D. in 2000 from the University of Western Ontario and completed my internship at Victoria Hospital (London Health Sciences Centre). I have always worked in the broad area of psychosomatics and much of this work has been in the acute medical/surgical setting. Over the years, I have been fortunate to collaborate with a number of medical specialties, including respirology, palliative care, critical care, and renal transplant. These collaborations have offered the opportunity to teach and train learners interested in health and rehabilitation psychology.  Since the pandemic, I have become very passionate about providing mental health and psychosocial supports to our fellow healthcare worker colleagues. I also have the distinct honour of representing our exceptionally talented psychology group at the corporate level as Professional Practice Lead. I have a part-time appointment with the McMaster Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences (Associate Professor).

 More About Me

My parents were Italian immigrants.  I grew up in Guelph and lived in London for many years before moving to Hamilton where I now reside with my wife, child, multiple cats, and fish tanks.  I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, following my favourite sports teams, obsessing over audio gear, and curating my vinyl record collection.

Professional Background

I received my PhD in clinical psychology in 2003 from the University of Waterloo and completed my residency training at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto, Ontario. Following that, I completed a 2-year CIHR-funded postdoctoral fellowship at the Anxiety Treatment and Research Clinic (ATRC) at St. Joseph’s Healthcare and then transitioned to my current position as a psychologist at the ATRC.  I am also an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences at McMaster University and have a cross appointment in the Department of Psychology, Neuroscience, and Behaviour at McMaster University where I supervise graduate students in the clinical psychology graduate program. I am the Director of Training in the Psychology Residency Program at St. Joseph’s. My research interests, broadly, involve understanding anxiety and related disorders (including Hoarding Disorder) through a cognitive behavioural lens. My goal is to conduct research that has immediate and meaningful implications for individuals with anxiety and related disorders.

More About Me

I identify as female and White with mixed European ancestry. I was born and raised in Vancouver, BC but was not able to master skiing until I moved to Ontario as an adult and was introduced to kinder, gentler ski hills. I live in Hamilton with my husband, two kids, and very cute dog. I love to read, hike, laugh, support the Toronto Raptors, spend time with my family and friends, and consume good food and wine.

Professional Background

I received my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from York University in 2006.  My clinical and research interests have included the experiences of sexual and gender minority youth, antigay violence, sexual and relationship violence, and professional boundary transgressions.  I have worked with both the provincial and federal ministries of corrections.  In addition to my role as psychologist in the Forensic Psychiatry Program, I maintain a private practice in Hamilton and Toronto with a focus on assessment for criminal and civil proceedings, treatment for offenders in the community, and intervention for professionals facing censure or discipline by their regulatory bodies.  My current research interests include evaluating the efficacy of substance abuse and CBTp interventions for forensic populations.

More About Me

I am (at least) 4th generation Canadian with mixed Irish, Scottish, and French Canadian ancestry.  Born and raised in Ontario, I enjoy quiet weekends in the Kawarthas with my partner and family, who have learned to trust me with a chainsaw.

Professional Background

I (she/her) started my St. Joe’s journey in 2010 as a first-time practicum student at the ATRC. I was delighted to return to St. Joe’s in 2014, after completing my residency in Ottawa, to join the psychology team in the ATRC and Mood Disorders Outpatient Clinics. In January 2022, I joined Ontario Structured Psychotherapy, West Region (OSP West) as a clinical consultant. I’m also an Assistant Professor (PT) in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences at McMaster University and maintain a small roster of private practice clients in my spare time. I am licensed to practice with both adolescent and adult populations.  I attended grad school at the University of Waterloo, where I was lucky enough to be a recipient of a prestigious Vanier Canada Graduate Scholarship.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 Pandemic, I have been part of SJHH’s COVID-19 Healthcare Worker Support Team and the Coping & Resilience Support (CARS) Mobile Team, where I have been honoured to provide individual and group peer support, coping, and resilience strategies to frontline healthcare workers throughout the pandemic. I very much enjoy working with learners and both teach and supervise at the undergraduate, graduate, and post-graduate levels across a number of disciplines. My clinical and research interests focus broadly on assessment and CBT/CBT-based interventions related to anxiety, depression, obsessive-compulsive, trauma, and stressor related disorders. I was a member of Diagnostic Assessment and Research Tool (DART) Working Group and contributed to the writing and development of the DART (a modular, semi-structured diagnostic interview for assessing mental disorders based on DSM-5 diagnostic criteria). I have published scientific papers in peer-reviewed journals and book chapters and have presented my work at local, national, and international professional conferences.

 More About Me

Personally, I am a strong advocate for client centered, anti-oppressive, and anti-racist practice and am ally of the 2SLGBTQIA community. Being neurodivergent myself, I welcome learners with differences and strive to adapt my training and supervision to help identify and meet individual needs.

Professional Background

I received my PhD in clinical psychology from Toronto Metropolitan University in 2016 and completed my psychology residency at the London Clinical Psychology Consortium in London, Ontario. Following my graduate training I completed a Postdoctoral Fellowship in Clinical Psychology at the Anxiety Treatment and Research Clinic (ATRC) at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton and McMaster University. In my position as a staff psychologist at the ATRC, I am actively engaged in clinical work, research, and supervision. My primary research focus is on the development and validation of the Diagnostic Assessment Research Tool (DART; McCabe et al., 2017) and I am also interested in the study of worry.

I have a teaching and leadership role within the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences at McMaster University. I am an Assistant Professor and direct the Masters of Sciences in Psychotherapy Program and the Clinical Behavioural Sciences Graduate Diploma Program. I teach a course on psychotherapy research and supervise students in their training in cognitive behavioural therapy.

More About Me

I identify as a white female with mixed European and Ukrainian ancestry. I spent my childhood in western Canada between Alberta and British Columbia before moving to Ontario in my adolescence. I live with my husband and child and I enjoy spending time outdoors and trying new recipes.

Professional Background

I completed my undergraduate and graduate training in Ottawa, initially at Carleton University (B.A. Honours, 2012) and received my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at the University of Ottawa in 2018. I completed my residency at the University of Ottawa’s Centre of Psychological Services and Research (CPSR), where I provided assessment and treatment services to youth and adults across a wide range of mental health concerns. Following residency, I moved to Hamilton and completed my supervised practice year as a psychologist in the Mood Disorders Program and the Youth Wellness Centre (YWC) at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton, later transitioning into a fulltime role at the YWC in 2019. Concurrently, I am also a full-time assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences at McMaster University and have a specific research interest in increasing access to care and evidence-based treatments for the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. For example, I am currently leading a proof-of-concept pilot of a new minority stress-based CBT intervention, Transcending, for transgender and gender diverse youth.

More About Me

I identify as gay, male (he/him), feminine, and white, with English, French, and Irish ancestry. I am also a partner, cat dad, son, brother, uncle, teacher, mentor, and friend. I grew up in Atlantic Canada in the village of Perth-Andover, N.B., and will always be a small-town boy at heart. Outside of work, I love plants and gardening, painting (e.g., oil, expressionist), and watching reality TV (e.g., RPDR, real housewives, etc.).

Professional Background

I received my Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Ryerson University, now Toronto Metropolitan University, in 2019. As part of this process, I completed my residency at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton where I worked in a number of areas, including the Behavioural Medicine Consultation & Liaison Service, Chronic Pain Clinic, Behavioural Sleep Medicine Program, Anxiety Treatment and Research Clinic, Mood Disorders Program, and Women’s Health Concerns Clinic. During this residency year, I gained experience working with patients with a broad range of chronic health problems and gained an even greater appreciation for the overarching impact that physical health issues have on mental health and other important areas of functioning. Since completing my Ph.D., I have worked as a clinical health psychologist at St. Joe’s in a newly created position within the Kidney Urinary Program. This represents the first full-time psychologist position in a kidney urinary program in the province of Ontario, and I have been fortunate to have grown into this role with the support of a wonderful and dedicated interdisciplinary team. My work involves supporting patients across the wide spectrum of chronic kidney disease progression as they cope with the many physical, emotional, and social challenges that arise along the way. I am also an assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences at McMaster University where I am currently collaborating with interdisciplinary colleagues from nephrology, respirology, and nursing on research examining the role of cognitive behavioural therapy in reducing hospital readmission after discharge.

More About Me

I identify as a gay male (pronouns he/him) of predominantly Scottish and Swedish background if I search back far enough, but culturally, I am Canadian through and through. I like a good strong black coffee and enjoy finding new ways of making it at home. My most recent addition to this skill set was learning to make Turkish coffee, which was a game changer! I grew up in Timmins, the “City with a Heart of Gold”, surrounded by lakes and forests, as well as mosquitoes and black bears. Here, I learned to play the viola and joined the Timmins Symphony Orchestra for several years. As a student, I spent a few summers working 3500 feet underground in a gold mine hauling ore in a small tram. These days, I like to remain above ground and my hobbies include running, gardening and attempting to keep my house plants alive. I live with my partner and a few cockatiels who are trying their best to whistle catchy tunes like September by Earth, Wind & Fire.

Professional Background

I earned a B.Sc. from Western University, and received my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology in 2014 from Lakehead University.  I went on to complete my pre-doctoral residency training at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton.  I am currently working as a psychologist at the Anxiety Treatment and Research Clinic at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton, and hold a part-time appointment as an Assistant Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neurosciences at McMaster University.  My clinical work is focused on the assessment and cognitive behavioural treatment of patients with anxiety and related disorders.  Research interests include the development, evaluation, and dissemination of transdiagnostic behaviour therapy in the adolescent population, and developmentally adapted Cognitive Processing Therapy. I actively supervise psychology residents, psychiatry residents, psychology practicum students, and CBS students within McMaster University.

More About Me

I identify as a white, straight woman (she/her), with mixed European ancestry. I was born and raised in a small beach town on the shores of Lake Huron. I moved to the Hamilton area to complete my residency, and now live in the Niagara area with my husband, two boys, my dog (a Great Dane), and my cat. Throughout my university years, I enjoyed rock climbing, sky diving, and bungy jumping, but these days I spend most of my spare time camping, hiking, and gardening.
