1.     How are you applying your degree in Psychology from Concordia?

I conduct research on anxiety and related disorders so that my clinical practice and lines of investigation can continue to inform each other, moving both research and practice forward.

2.     What do you value most from your experience in the Psychology program?

The excellent mentorship I received from my supervisor and other faculty members, as well as the strong emphasis the program places on both rigorous research and clinical training.

3.     Is there a particular memory that stands out from your time at Concordia?

The large shared office space for graduate students in my lab provided such a positive setting to stay focused on work, along with valuable resources and support to draw on.

4.     What advice would you give to someone considering graduate studies in a Psychology program?  

Enjoy learning how to become an independent researcher and clinician, which involves being mentored, working within a team, receiving feedback and growing. Do not just focus on graduating with a degree and beginning your work life. I feel lucky to have spent my graduate years in a place that provided so many excellent opportunities.
