She has received extensive training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and has worked with a wide range of client populations (i.e., adults, adolescents, children, and individuals in conflict with the law) experiencing a number of mental health concerns. Jennifer has experience in providing both individual and group psychotherapy and has a special interest in the treatment of mood and anxiety disorders, interpersonal difficulties, and emotional dysregulation. She has completed clinical training at Surrey Place Centre, St. Michael’s Hospital, the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health, as well as McMaster Children’s Hospital, and has worked with individuals in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Jennifer’s graduate research examines risk factors and correlates of criminal behaviour among various forensic populations.

Words from Jennifer: “Hello! I’m Jennifer Newman. I’m currently a PhD Candidate in Clinical Psychology. In therapy, I focus on building a warm and positive therapeutic relationship with my clients in a safe and non-judgmental environment. Although I am primarily a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist, my approach to therapy is often integrative, drawing on elements of other evidence-based psychotherapies to best meet my clients’ individual needs and goals. Please feel free to schedule an appointment with me if you think we would be a good match!”
