Ph.D., C. Psych. (Supervised Practice)
Dr. Bouchard provides psychological services to individuals who are experiencing a wide variety of problems, including depression, anxiety, PTSD, developmental trauma, childhood emotional neglect, interpersonal difficulties, poor self-esteem, grief and loss, burnout, emotional regulation, and adjustment to major life’s transitions. She also provides psychodiagnostic and psychoeducational assessments to children, adolescents and adults.
Dr. Bouchard works collaboratively with clients to identify goals and develop tailored treatment strategies. She uses an integrative approach incorporating a number of evidence-based treatments including psychodynamic, compassion focused, cognitive behavioural, experiential, interpersonal, mindfulness, and neurofeedback. She believes the therapeutic relationship is an essential component of therapy and for many a starting place where change can take place, a focus area for her doctoral dissertation.
