Sommer Knight

Ph.D. Practicum Student in Clinical Psychology

I am a Ph.D. practicum student in the Clinical Psychology program at the University of Ottawa. Prior to my studies at the University of Ottawa, I completed a M.Sc. in the Division of Social and Transcultural Psychiatry at McGill University. 

I provide evidence-based psychological assessment services to children, adolescents, and families under the supervision of licensed clinical psychologists Drs. Laura Hanson and Rebecca Moore. I primarily conduct assessments at the Kanata Psychology and Counselling Centre. 

My approach to assessment is strengths-based with consideration to sociocultural context. I strive to obtain a holistic and comprehensive view of children, adolescents and families while doing so with empathy, collaboration, and cultural humility. I aim to provide quality evaluations to promote both child and family well-being.
