MEET RHYE PADDACK
Rhye Paddack is an assessment clinician who completed a Masters of Education in School and Applied Child Psychology at the University of British Columbia. They help Dr. Juliana conduct psycho-educational assessments. In addition to providing services at the clinic, Rhye works as a school psychologist at the Surrey school district and performs evaluations independently in that setting. Nonetheless, when working in private practice, Rhye’s certification requires them to work under the supervision of a Registered Psychologist like Dr. Juliana.
Rhye has significant experience assessing children and youth experiencing learning difficulties, cognitive barriers, and mental health conditions affecting their academic, behavioural, social, and emotional success in the real world.
They have an engaging and fun approach to assessing young people and worked for 15 years in different capacities, including being a family volunteer at Canuck Place Children's Hospice, a coach for adolescents with disabilities, and an after-school care worker at private and public schools.
Are you curious about why some people use gender-neutral pronouns such as "they/them"? See:
Rhye is registered with the British Columbia Association of School Psychologists (BCASP #479). They were trained in mental health first aid through the Mental Health Commission of Canada and alternative assessment of youth who have chronic physical and intellectual disorders through BC Children’s Hospital.
