Marie-Pierre Daigle

Ph.D. Practicum Student in Clinical Psychology

I provide evidence-based psychological assessments to adolescents and adults under the supervision of licensed psychologists. I primarily conduct assessments at the Kanata Psychology and Counselling Centre under the supervision of Dr. Jennifer Barnes.

When working with clients, I provide a compassionate and non-judgemental space. I use an affirmative practice when working with clients’ various identities (e.g., gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity), acknowledging the impact of systemic stressors on mental health and keeping them in mind in my treatment. I hold previous experience in hospital outpatient, private practice, and community mental health settings.

I also have experience in working with the unique challenges confronted by LGBTQI+ individuals and their families as my doctoral research seeks to understand growth narratives related to coming out to parents in women who love women.
