Bronwyn O’Brien

Ph.D. Practicum Student in Clinical Psychology

I am a Ph.D. practicum student in the clinical psychology program at the University of Ottawa. I provide evidence-based psychological assessment and treatment services to children, adolescents, adults and families under the supervision of licensed psychologists Dr. Rebecca Moore and Dr. Laura Hanson

My approach is collaborative, and strengths focused and emphasizes clients and families as experts of their own unique experience, growth and recovery. I strive to create a safe, collaborative and compassionate environment filled with warmth, acceptance and respect. 

Specifically, my approach to therapy is integrative, drawing on cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT) dialectical behaviour therapy (DBT), mindful self-compassion, compassion focused therapy, and interpersonal approaches. I am particularly interested in working with mood disorders, anxiety disorders, trauma, developmental disabilities, relationship issues and emotional regulation.
