Kyle McBride

Practicum student and counsellor in-training

My approach to therapy is open, responsive, encouraging, and non-judgmental. I will try my best to come to a common understanding with you and use that common ground to work towards your goals. I work with clients on a wide range of difficulties, including depression, anxiety, emotion regulation, interpersonal difficulties, and distress management, among others. My approach involves a wide range of therapy modalities, with cognitive behavioural therapy, dialectical behaviour therapy and mindfulness-based approaches being my main areas of training currently. The common thread among all my practices is that I use an evidence-based approach to assess and treat your needs.

I am currently in my fourth year of the clinical psychology program at the University of Ottawa. My past therapy experience was at the Centre for Psychological Services and Research (CPSR) at the University of Ottawa and the Ottawa Institute of Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (OICBT).
