M.A., PhD Student in Clinical Developmental Psychology

Marlee completed her Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology at the University of Manitoba and is currently working towards completing her Ph.D. in Clinical Developmental Psychology at York University. Her clinical and research training focuses on trauma and attachment, particularly how trauma impacts individuals and families including the parent-child relationship.

Marlee is trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic Therapy, Family Systems Therapy, and the Trauma Practice model. Her approach is integrative and tailored to each client’s individual needs and goals for treatment and recovery. Her aim is to create a therapeutic environment that feels authentic, inclusive, safe, and understanding of where clients can collaboratively work through difficult experiences and emotions. She believes that an empathic and trusting relationship is essential for helping clients process and heal from trauma and aims to support clients using a genuine, accepting, and honest interpersonal style.

Marlee is currently following the Trauma Practice model and is one of the lead student investigators on a research project with York University evaluating the effectiveness of the Trauma Practice model.
