Hailey Collins | Psychometrist

I am the resident Psychometrist at Restore Balance and administer psycho-educational assessments under the supervision of a registered psychologist. My cheerful predisposition, strong attention to detail, and willingness to go above and beyond helps clients feel at ease during the assessment. I graduated from Trent University with an Honours Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology with a specialization in Psychological Development.  I am currently completing my Master’s in Clinical Social Work at the University of Toronto. While pursuing my Bachelor degree at Trent University, I completed an undergraduate thesis investigating executive functioning and social problem-solving in preschool children.

My past experiences include working for Victim Services of Durham Region as a Crisis Intervention Counsellor, working at Trent University for the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council as a psychometrist, and acting as a Behavioural Support Worker.

My way of restoring balance in my life is to spend time watching Netflix with my fur baby, Ghost. If you are curious, you can see her goofy smile in the picture of her that currently hangs in the administration room in our Toronto office!

 

What is a Psychoeducational Assessment?

Psychoeducational assessments aim to describe an individual’s learning profile (strengths and weaknesses) and psychological functioning. This includes an assessment of their cognitive (thinking) abilities and academic achievement. These assessments also evaluate emotional, social, and behavioural characteristics that can influence their functioning.
