I am in my third year of the Clinical Psychology PhD program. I am originally from Burlington, Ontario and I completed my Bachelor of Science Honours degree in Psychology at Queen’s University in 2015. My background is in developmental psychology and human sexuality, and I am particularly interested in exploring how aspects of sexuality develop and change over the lifespan. Specifically, I hope to examine the development of gender dysphoria and sexual dysfunction and pain disorders; more specifically, how interpersonal and psychological variables impact the interpersonal, sexual, and relationship functioning of both a couple and the individual. I am also interested in exploring how the consequences of treatment (for example mastectomies or hormonal therapy) impact sexuality and consequently psychological health in both men and women.
