Dr. Rob and AvaDr. Robert J. McInerney, Ph.D., R.Psych.: I am a neuropsychologist in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Over the past 19 years, I have worked in several major hospitals and community settings in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, and Nova Scotia. I am currently a Clinical Associate at Dalhousie University and part of the executive committee of the Association of Psychologists of Nova Scotia (APNS)

I completed my doctoral degree with dual specialization in Clinical Psychology and Neuropsychology at the University of Victoria in British Columbia. I was fortunate to have received several local and national scholarships and acquired extensive clinical training and experience with children, adolescents, adults, and families. In 2006, I completed my predoctoral residency at the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario and then joined the Neuropsychology Service at the Alberta Children's Hospital in Calgary. In 2008, I accepted a position at the IWK Health Centre in Halifax. My clinical time was devoted primarily to Neuropsychology, to the Brain Injury Team, and to the inpatient/outpatient Pediatric Rehabiliation service. I also participated in research, teaching, and student supervision. I established my private practice in 2009 and now work there full-time.

I met my wife, Jessica, shortly after I arrived in Halifax. We are now the proud parents of two wonderful little girls, Ava and Annabelle. They have filled our life with immeasurable joy and happiness!

Travel and photography have been part of my life for as long as I can remember. I have lived, worked, and travelled across several provinces in Canada and have travelled extensively throughout Australia, New Zealand, Scotland, and the USA. I have posted a few of my favourite photos in the photography section of my website.

Sarah AngelopoulosSarah Angelopoulos, M.A.S.P., R.Psych.: I am a Registered Psychologist with the province of Nova Scotia. I have experience working in a variety of settings, including the public school system, private practice, health, and the Department of Community Services. I currently work full-time as the Chief of Clinical Services in a residential treatment facility for at-risk youth.

I enjoy conducting psychoeducational assessments for children and adolescents who are experiencing difficulty in school. The process of uncovering explanations for why a child is struggling, as well as discovering hidden strengths, is empowering for youth and their families. Armed with knowledge uncovered through the assessment process, I strive to provide services that are timely and valuable to clients in moving to a more helpful place.

My main area of research and clinical interest is in mindfulness-based interventions for youth with a history of complex trauma. I have completed extensive post-graduate training through the University of Massachusetts's Medical School, Centre for Mindfulness. For the past two years, I have facilitated a mindfulness class to youth in a secure treatment facility, as well as offered staff training and sessions to senior leaders within government on the topic of mindfulness. In 2015, I received the Minister's IDEAL award for my work in this area.

I am the proud mother of two beautiful boys, Aidan and Noah, who are the light of my life.

As a clinical psychologist, I conduct comprehensive mental health assessments with adults, adolescents, and children with depression, anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), personality disorders, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and learning disabilities. I also provide counselling and psychotherapy for a variety of issues including depression, anxiety, PTSD/trauma, stress management, anger management, grief/loss, work and relationship problems, eating and body image issues, as well as other mental health concerns. I was trained in Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), but take an eclectic approach to counselling/psychotherapy, integrating other evidence-based practices.

I have experience conducting independent medial evaluations (IME) and medical-legal assessments for insurance companies, lawyers, and employers as well as the worker's compensation board (WCB) of Nova Scotia.

I graduated from Acadia University with a Master of Science in Clinical Psychology in 2005. I was fortunate enough to receive a Social Sciences and Humanities Research (SSHRC) graduate scholarship as well as several other scholarships. My graduate research was conducted in the area of eating disorders and body image disturbance. Part of my training involved working at a rehabilitation facility for individuals with severe and persistent mental illness such as bipolar disorder and schizophrenia.

I was born and raised in Bedford, Nova Scotia and I love living and working here in Halifax. In my leisure time, I enjoy spending quality time with friends and family and travelling to interesting places abroad to learn about history and culture. I also enjoy outdoor activities such as camping, hiking, and sailing, during our lovely martime summers. I am interested in the arts and have occasionally engaged in some creative pursuits like painting and quilting. After losing my mother to pancreatic cancer in 2013, I became a volunteer and board member with Craig's Cause Pancreatic Cancer Society where I assist with patient support, awareness and education, and fundraising.
