Anna Ranger, B.A. (Hons)
I work as a psychometrist under the supervision of Dr. Marc Bedard, C.Psych. who has extensive experience evaluating Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in adults. In my capacity as a psychometrist, I gather, score, and interpret psychological tests. These offer insightful data that helps the psychologist complete their assessment and arrive at a diagnosis.
During your time with me, you will participate in cognitive testing that uses tools based on scientific research, as well as a clinical interview to gather background information and identify any challenges you might be facing in your daily life. Making the evaluation as engaging and pleasant as possible is my goal, and you can trust that any information that you share with me will be kept completely confidential.
I started my academic journey at the University of Ottawa, where I completed an Honours Bachelor of Arts degree with a major in Psychology and a minor in Criminology. I later earned a Graduate Certificate in Victimology from Algonquin College, and I am presently in the process of completing a Master’s degree in Psychology at Carleton University, the focal point of which is my Master’s thesis, titled “Effects of Vicarious Crime Exposure on Wellbeing in Victims and Their Romantic Partners.” In June 2023, I was fortunate enough to attend the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA)’s 84th Annual Convention & Tradeshow in conjunction with the 5th North American Correctional and Criminal Justice Psychology Conference (N5), where I presented the preliminary findings from this research in poster format. I also hope to pursue doctoral-level training in clinical psychology in the future.
