Dr. Darlene Elliott-Faust Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychologist

About Us

Dr. Darlene Elliott-Faust, Clinical and School Psychologist

I am a registered Psychologist with a practice in Child and Adolescent Psychology.  I began my practice part-time in 1991 and as of September 2009 I work full-time in my practice.  I see children, adolescents and post-secondary students in individual therapy for a variety of social/emotional or behavioural concerns. I also do family therapy and meet with parents to discuss a range of parenting issues. I also complete assessments for learning disabilities and attentional disorders.  I supervise all the testing that is completed in my practice.

I have always wanted to be a Child and Adolescent Psychologist and pursued this goal since my undergraduate training in psychology.  I hold an Honours B.A. in Psychology (1977) from the University of Western Ontario.  In 1980 I obtained a Masters of Applied Science (MA.Sc.) in Educational Psychology from the University of Waterloo.  The emphasis in that training was on educational theory, assessment, test theory and construction, and practicum placements in schools and mental health facilities. In 1985 I graduated from the University of Western Ontario with a Ph.D. in Child Clinical Psychology.  During this program I completed placements/internships at CPRI and Children’s Hospital.

I became a Registered Psychologist in 1986 and have worked in a residential treatment centre for children and youth, and an in-patient psychiatric unit for children and adolescents.  For  twenty-one years I worked as a Consulting Psychologist for the Thames Valley School Board.   I also chaired the Suicide Awareness Committee.  I have also held cross appointments in Psychology, Psychiatry and Education at the University of Western Ontario.  I provide workshops/presentations to educators, mental health workers, parents, teens and Children’s Aid Society and the Learning Disabilities Association.


Dr. Kristin Anglin-Bodrug, Counselling and School Psychologist

In 2005 I received my Ph.D. in Educational Psychology from the University of Western Ontario. I am registered as a School and Counselling Psychologist and have been working as a Psychologist at the Thames Valley District School Board since 2006. My interests include helping students develop skills needed to be successful in school by identifying their learning strengths and needs, providing tools to develop executive functioning skills, and helping them learn how to self-advocate their needs in a school setting. I have assessed students presenting with learning disabilities, developmental disabilities, ADHD, autistic behaviours, and other behavioural concerns. I have also supervised graduate students in their assessment training. I complete psychoeducational assessments for children and adolescents on the weekends in Dr. Elliott-Faust’s practice.


Marina Borja, Psychometrist

I completed my Masters of Education in Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE, University of Toronto) in October 2016. I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and I graduated in 2009 there with Honours in Psychology at the University of Belgrano. Back at home, I gained clinical experience through internships, which included working at public hospitals and community centres. In Canada, I trained at Women’s College Hospital in the Trauma Therapy Program (TTP) and in the Women Recovering from Abuse Program (WRAP). I have worked with child, adolescent and adult populations with a wide variety of challenges including addictions, interpersonal childhood trauma, learning and developmental disabilities. I thoroughly enjoy working with high school and college students to help them find out more about their learning profile, to identify how to make the most of their strengths and to help them discover new coping strategies for the areas where they struggle.
