Dr. Dianna Lanteigne, ph.D.,
Registered Clinical Psychologist
*Please note that Dr. Lanteigne is on maternity leave until September 2019*
My focus is help you reach your goals by discussing your concerns in an accepting and empathetic space while applying evidence-based strategies to manage mental health symptoms.
Through warm, comprehensive, and accurate assessment of mental health and/or academic problems, we can develop specific recommendations and a tailored treatment plan for you or your child. I work in a compassionate way to fully understand your concerns and help you implement a treatment plan that you feel empowered by.
I am highly trained in cognitive-behavioural, dialectical-behaviour, and interpersonal psychotherapies, and have experience working with children, adolescents, and adults. I believe in the strength of families and encourage participation of parents and family members in many treatment cases.
Education and Experience
While completing my undergraduate degree in psychology at the University of Guelph, I spent the summers of my early career training in the Psychology department at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto.
To pursue a deeper level of understanding in human emotion and behaviour as well as develop advanced clinical skills, I then earned my Master's degree in Developmental Psychology and Doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from Queen's University in Kingston. My clinical work included a broad range of experience in schools, hospitals, family and children's services, developmental, and forensic settings. The focus of my research was on the relationship between emotion regulation and the development of mental health problems.
I completed my pre-doctoral residency in psychology at the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre, with rotations in the Youth Psychiatry Program, Operational Stress Injury Clinic, and the Mood and Anxiety Disorders Program.
Post-residency, I have worked as a psychologist at a Family Health Team and in private practice, focusing on children, adolescents, and families, as well as military members and veterans.
Please note as Dr. Lanteigne currently works for the military part-time she is unable to accept referrals for active military members due to conflict of interest. Referrals for children and spouses of military members are welcome.
