Yvonne Hindes, Registered Psychologist, Ph.D, Registered Psychologist
I am a Registered Psychologist in Alberta. I believe all children have unique profiles and their own areas of strengths. I have a passion for working with children and supporting them in their learning, well-being, and daily lives by identifying and building on their strengths. I take a strength-based approach to assessment practices.
