I am interested in child and youth mental health and mental health systems. My doctoral research examined intra- and intersector integration for child and youth mental health across the health care, social care, and education sectors in Ontario. My post doctoral work is focused on furthering this research by identifying best practices for collaboration among service providers in the health care, social care, and education sectors. My research is grounded in my experience as a clinician and clinical supervisor in community-based child and youth mental health care.
