Welcome to the Eastern Ottawa Psychological Centre!
We are a dynamic team of psychologists, headed by Dr. Geneviève Bouchard, who has over 20 years of experience in hospital settings and in private practice. Our professional team is dedicated to delivering evidenced-based psychological services that meet the needs of our clients. We are committed to ensuring the success of their psychological treatments as well as the achievement of their therapeutic objectives. Our values of acceptance, authenticity, and professionalism guide our work and unite us in a common vision of psychology.
We believe in offering accessible services to the community. We endeavour to increase accessibility by offering reduced fee workshops on various topics pertaining to common psychological difficulties and by offering a limited amount of reduced fee seats in our DBT groups.
We strongly believe that it’s crucial to democratize psychology and offer everyone the chance to receive quality services that allow them to build a rich and fulfilling life that aligns with their desires and aspirations. The founding members of our team are also specialized in dialectical behavior therapy and were all trained at the Linehan Institute: Behavioral Tech in the United States.
Our certified DBT team aims to offer training to health professionals in the Ottawa region in order to share our knowledge of this therapeutic modality. We are also trained in other therapeutic approaches such as Emotion Focused Therapy, Mindfulness and Acceptance Therapy, Trauma Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. We follow an integrative approach that allows adapting to our clients’ needs.
Continued training of our psychologists as well as their dedication to peer supervision ensures that services are of the highest quality. We offer services to adolescents, adults, couples, and families, in both French and English.
