Nana is in her fourth year of undergraduate studies in Psychology at York University. During her time at York, Nana has been a part of several successful projects including the development of the first-ever Luminate Mental Health Conference Series. She also volunteered as a Peer Mentor with the Undergraduate Psychology Students Association and as a Research Assistant in the Self & Social Processes lab. As a Research Assistant, Nana developed an independent study on leadership and the attributional processes that looked at organizational success and failures. Nana hopes to apply this research lens to the therapeutic alliance. She intends to do so by exploring the attributional processes which occur during alliance ruptures, in an effort to create more resilient therapeutic relationships.
Nana has significant experience working in various psychology clinics in Toronto and she is happy to bring her knowledge and skills to the Toronto Psychology Clinic team! As an Intake Assistant, Nana hopes to further develop her clinical skill set as she pursues graduate studies and a career in Clinical/Counselling Psychology.
