Dr Vanessa Rowe completed her doctorate in psychology (D.Psy.) from l’Université de Moncton in August 2019. She joined the Clinic of Applied Psychology in October 2019 as a resident in psychology and is a licensed psychologist since November 2020.

Before joining the clinic in October 2019, Dr Rowe had the opportunity to gain experience in a variety of settings, including the District scolaire Francophone-Sud, the Campbellton Community Mental Health Center, the Centre of Excellence for Children and Youth with complex needs, the private practice setting and the Dr. Georges-L.-Dumont University Hospital Center. Her clinical training has allowed her to develop specific skills in assessment and intervention with children and adolescents (as well as their parents) affected by various issues, including anxiety disorders, depressive disorders, obsessive-compulsive disorder, difficulties with emotion regulation and a number of other problematics and neurodevelopmental disorders. In parallel with her interests in assessment and treatment of children and adolescents, Dr Rowe has always had an interest in intervention with the adult population. Her experiences with adults are mostly related to individual interventions for anxiety and stress, depressed mood, adjustment disorder, interpersonal problems and difficulties regulating emotions.

In her work at the Clinic of Applied Psychology, Dr Rowe continues to be mainly interested in issues related to anxiety and stress, depression and the management (regulation) of emotions in school-aged children, adolescents and adults. In all of her interventions, she strives to be a trauma-informed therapist and to work from a lens informed by disordered eating patterns.

In therapy, Dr Rowe particularly values empathy, non-judgment and collaboration. She uses therapeutic approaches that are evidence-based and that best suit client’s needs. However, the therapeutic approaches and techniques she favors are based in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical-Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and a client-centered approach.
