Dr. Selkirk is a psychologist whose goal is to help patients compassionately explore the depths of their emotions and find empowerment through meaningful self-discovery. “I have always possessed a deep love of learning. Inquisitive since childhood, I remain a lifelong student, continuously drawn to investigate the ultimate unknown: the human mind. Through my life, I have realized that no matter how much we learn about the human brain, there is always more to discover, and there is always something new to be found in each individual’s story” as stated by Dr. Selkirk.
