Christine Arsenault is a psychologist at the Clinic of Applied Psychology since 2002 and became co-owner of the Clinic in 2008.

At the beginning of her career, Christine mainly worked with children and adolescents. Indeed, as a member of the Provincial Youth Treatment Program between 1998 and 2002, she conducted comprehensive psychological evaluations with adolescents that were admitted to the Pierre Caissie Center. Between 2005 and 2018, Christine was a consultant with Peel Children Center, a residential treatment program for youth displaying emotional, relational, and/or behavioral difficulties. Over the years, she developed an expertise in various issues commonly seen in children and adolescents.

Throughout her career, Christine has also been interested in working with adults. More specifically, she offers consultation, assessment, and treatment services to adults impacted by various conditions, including trauma-related disorders, sleep disorders, mood disorders, as well as anxiety disorders. Christine has a particular interest in the psychological treatment of chronic insomnia and has received training from some of the top experts in this field. She is also interested in providing psychological services to first responders (including police officers, firefighters, paramedics), correctional officers, members of the Canadian Forces as well as veterans.

Overall, Christine utilizes a therapeutic approach that meets each client’s needs. However, she does favor the cognitive-behavioral model.
