Dr. Robert J. McInerneyDr. Robert J. McInerney, Ph.D., R.Psych. I am a neuropsychologist in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Over the past 23 years, I have worked in several major hospitals and community settings in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario, and Nova Scotia. I am a Clinical Associate at Dalhousie University and a former member of the executive committee of the Association of Psychologists of Nova Scotia (APNS).

I completed my Master's and Doctoral degrees with dual specializations in Neuropsychology and Clinical Psychology at the University of Victoria in British Columbia. I was fortunate to have received several national and local 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 in Ottawa 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 work was devoted primarily to the Neuropsychology Service, to the Brain Injury Team, and to the inpatient/outpatient Pediatric Rehabiliation Service. I also participated in teaching, research, and student supervision. I established my private practice in 2009 and now work there full time.

I met my wife, Jessica, shortly after I moved to Halifax. We are the proud parents of two wonderful 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 United States. 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 substantial experience supporting children and adolescents who have a history of complex trauma and who have required secure and/or residential treatment services. I currently work full-time as a Psychologist with the Halifax Regional Centre for Education.

I had the privilege of completing extensive post-graduate training in the area of Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) and am qualified by the University of Massachusetts's Medical School's Centre for Mindfulness as an MBSR Teacher. I have also completed the Dialectical Behaviour Therapy Intensive Training program through Behavioural Tech.

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 understanding and moving to a more helpful place.

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


Dr. Erika BradyDr. Erika Brady, Ph.D., R.Psych. I am a registered psychologist who enjoys living and working in Halifax, Nova Scotia. I completed my doctoral degree in clinical psychology at Temple University in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Prior to settling in the Halifax area, I worked at university affiliated hospitals or medical centers in several cities in the United States providing assessment and intervention services with children, adolescents and adults with a variety of concerns including learning disorders, anxiety/mood disorders, ADHD, neurodevelopmental disorders, brain injuries, and chronic illness.

I moved to the Halifax area in 2002 and have been employed as a psychologist at the IWK Health Centre since that time. During my time at the IWK, I have provided assessment and consultation services for preschool children with neurodevelopmental and/or medical conditions that affect cognitive and behavioural development. For the past several years, my work at the IWK has been with the Preschool Autism Team. As part of my work at the IWK and previous hospitals, I have been actively involved in clinical training and have supervised many psychology trainees completing practicum placements or pre-doctoral residency. More than 3 years ago, I became a part-time associate with Dr. Robert J. McInerney & Associates where I specialize in psychoeducational assessments with children, teens and adults.


Dr. Etta BrodersenDr. Etta Brodersen, Ph.D., R.Psych. I am a Registered Clinical and Forensic Psychologist within the province of Nova Scotia. I completed my Masters and PhD in British Columbia at Simon Fraser University, graduating in 2018, where I specialized in clinical and forensic psychology. My research focused on resilience and life outcomes in at-risk adolescent populations transitioning to adulthood, including what factors help youth achieve success as adults.

I am trained in assessment and treatment of both internalizing (e.g., Anxiety, Depression, Adjustment Disorders) and externalizing (e.g., ADHD, Substance Abuse, Anger Management) mental health presentations. I use evidence based approaches to ensure my work is comprehensive and based on current best practices tailored to the individual client and their presenting concerns. I work from a person centered approach that emphasizes client feedback, rapport building, and engagement. Within therapy I mostly use Cognitive Behavioural Therapy but I am also trained in Motivational Interviewing, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and the Good Lives Model.

I am currently employed full time at the Nova Scotia Health Authority in outpatient services where I conduct comprehensive assessments and carry out both group and individual therapy. At Dr. Robert J. McInerney & Associates, I offer comprehensive mental health assessments for concerns related to general mental health (depression, anxiety, etc), personality disorders, and Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), amongst other mental health concerns within youth and adult populations.


Chimene JewerChimène Jewer, M.Sc., R.Psych. I am a Clinical Psychologist with a broad range of experience working with adults, children and adolescents. Over the past 13 years, I have worked in a variety of settings, including hospitals, universities, the school system, the military, and private practice. I currently work full-time with the military.

I graduated from Acadia University with a Master of Science in Clinical Psychology in 2005. During my graduate studies, I received a Social Sciences and Humanities Research (SSHRC) graduate scholarship and several other scholarships. My graduate research was on eating disorders and body image dissatisfaction.

I have served on the Executive Committee of the Association of Psychologists of Nova Scotia (APNS), and in 2011, founded the Early Career Committee with APNS. In 2015, I was honoured with an award for Outstanding Early Career Psychologist from APNS. I have also served as a Clinical Associate at the University of New Brunswick (UNB).

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

In my leisure time, I enjoy quality time with friends and family, travel, arts and culture, hiking and camping. I am a volunteer and Board Member with Craig's Cause Pancreatic Cancer Society where I assist with patient support, awareness and education.


Stacey YoungStacey Young, M.A.S.P., R.Psych. I am a Registered Psychologist with the Nova Scotia Board of Examiners in Psychology. My work as a psychologist in schools and in various private settings has provided me with vast experience supporting children and youth with a wide range of behavioral, social, emotional, and academic needs. I currently work full-time as a Psychologist with the Halifax Regional Centre for Education, where I have practiced for the past 20 years.

I regularly provide assessment and consultation services for children, teens, and young adults across elementary, junior high, and high school settings. I have a great deal of experience conducting psycho-educational assessments for children and youth who are struggling in school. I approach the assessment as an opportunity to investigate the reasons behind the difficulty. A comprehensive assessment will profile a child’s cognitive and academic strengths and weaknesses, so as to inform program planning decisions. Through my work with the child, I am able to provide explanations for why they are struggling and help them, their parents, and teachers better understand their strengths so that they can figure out the best ways to both remediate and compensate for their challenges. In this way, an assessment empowers the child and their family to better advocate for the adaptations and supports they need to work to the best of their personal potential.

In addition to direct work with students, parents and teachers, I have also been actively involved in the clinical training and supervision of many interns in the School Psychology program and several newly graduated psychological Candidates who are beginning their career. Over the years, I have served on numerous professional committees in the fields of both psychology and education.

Besides work, I also love running, hiking, skiing, crafting, and singing. I am always up for adventures with friends and family and love playing with photography along the way. I am the proud mother of three very active children, Max, Sam, and Ali. My husband and I stay busy having fun with them - playing outdoors in our beautiful province and exploring every inch of it, from my original home in Cape Breton to the South West Shore and everywhere in between.
