Dr. Tia Ouimet is a psychologist and member of the Ordre des Psychologues du Quebec. She obtained her doctoral degree in School and Applied Child Psychology at McGill University, and completed her clinical training in the Department of Child Psychiatry at the Jewish General Hospital as well as in the Intensive Psychiatric Adolescent Program of the Douglas Mental Health University Institute. Dr. Ouimet has worked with children, adolescents, and families experiencing a range of difficulties (anxiety, depression, learning disorders, eating disorders, ASD, grief, emotion regulation and behaviour difficulties, ADHD, sleep difficulties) and across settings such as hospitals, schools, rehabilitation centres, and private practice.
Dr. Ouimet’s approach is grounded in evidence-based practice; her therapeutic interventions integrate science and research with clinical expertise and practice.
