Lianne Rosen, M.Sc.

Therapist

My approach to therapy is collaborative and strengths-based. I will work with you to explore the scope of the problem(s) you are facing and to develop a plan of action. I practice using evidence-based approaches such as cognitive-behavioural therapy, emotion-focused therapy, and mindfulness. The clients I work with struggle with problems such as low mood, excessive worry, difficulty in social situations, panic attacks, difficulty coping with a chronic illness, traumatic experiences, stress management, relationship issues, or sexual problems. I aim to create an open, nonjudgmental environment where you can feel safe to explore personal concerns, identify patterns that you might wish to change, and develop strategies to work towards your goals. I work under the supervision of a registered clinical psychologist.

I completed my Ph.D. in clinical psychology at the University of Victoria,  I have an M.Sc. in clinical psychology from the University of Victoria, and completed my pre-doctoral psychology residency at the QEII Health Sciences Centre in Halifax. I have previously trained in a variety of clinical settings including The Ottawa Hospital, the University of Victoria Counselling Services, and in private practice.

As a researcher, I focus on long-term adjustment and recovery among adult survivors of childhood maltreatment. My dissertation explores sexual healing and fulfillment among women survivors of  sexual abuse. My research has been published in academic peer-reviewed journals such as the Journal of Interpersonal Violence and Sexual and Relationship Therapy.

I look forward to working with you!
