Author Laura Young

Dr. Laura Young completed her Ph.D. in clinical psychology at the University of Victoria in 2011. She worked in private practice at Main Street Psychological Centre in Toronto from 2011-2019. She has recently moved to Ottawa in January 2020, where she works full-time in private practice, both at Centretown Psychological Services (Tuesdays) and at 100-444 MacLaren Street (Wednesdays through Fridays). Previously, Dr. Young has worked in community mental health centres, university-based clinics, and psychiatric, general, and children’s hospitals. She provides psychological treatment/psychotherapy and psychological assessment to adults, adolescents, and children presenting with a wide variety of concerns, including depression and mood issues, anxiety, relationship concerns, family conflict, self-esteem issues, substance use, trauma, personality-based concerns, and attention or learning difficulties. Dr. Young has training and clinical experience in numerous psychological treatment approaches, including psychodynamic therapy, interpersonal therapy, cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), dialectic behaviour therapy (DBT), and family systems therapy. She believes that relationships are a particularly important focus for therapy, as adjustment difficulties, mental health concerns, and unhealthy patterns can develop and be maintained in close relationships and can also change and improve in relationships. Dr. Young has a special interest in psychoanalysis and psychoanalytic therapy, and is currently completing advanced training in this area through the Toronto Institute for Contemporary Psychoanalysis.
