Our Team

Jennifer Volk, Ph.D., C.Psych.

Clinic Director

 

I offer Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for the treatment of mood and anxiety disorders, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, trauma, coping with chronic pain, coping with stress, and other difficulties with thoughts, emotions, and behaviours. I value a client centred approach, and will work with you to tailor evidence-based treatments to your individual needs. I believe that the environments that we live and work in, and the people we interact with are important influences on our mental health, and will work with you to create health not only in yourself, but also in your life.

I also have many years of experience in research, and I deliver evidence based treatments that have been proven to make a difference for clients. MBCT and CBT have been shown to be effective in treating many problems, and in reducing the chance that those problems will occur again.

I am a certified yoga instructor, and I believe in focusing on the mind and the body in all of our efforts to be healthy. I will work with you to address your challenges, to increase your sense of wellbeing, and to prevent the development of problems in the future.

Bradley Zacharias, Ph.D., C.Psych.

 

I obtained my doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from the University of Manitoba and offer assessment and treatment of a range of psychological difficulties including Depression, Anxiety Disorders, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). I also provide therapy for problems in coping with general stress, chronic pain, return-to-work/school issues, relationship problems, and parenting stress. My therapeutic approach integrates evidence-based treatments such as Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT) with mindfulness-based interventions, and I work to tailor treatment to your needs and personality with the goal of alleviating suffering and increasing well-being in your life.

I have significant experience in conducting and interpreting research which helps me ensure I am using assessment and treatment methods supported by scientific study. CBT and mindfulness-based interventions have been proven effective in reducing and preventing relapse of psychological disorders and general distress.

Ashley Gaboury, M.S.W., R.S.W.

I look forward to meeting new people each week and building a connection with them. I value honesty and integrity and embracing others’ unique characteristics in a compassionate way.

I possess a bachelors and a masters of social work from the University of Manitoba. Prior to beginning my journey in social work I completed a bachelor of arts in psychology, focusing on behaviour modification, as well as obtaining a certificate in human resource management.

I practice with an evidence-based, harm-reduction, strengths oriented approach, in order to best serve my clients. I also employ a trauma-informed lens that is client centered. I am a firm believer in providing a private, safe, and culturally sensitive environment.

There is a high degree of mutuality at the core of my practice, as I focus on building strong relationships.  I look forward to meeting you, so together we may embark on your journey.
