Deanna Walker

I completed my master’s degree in psychology at Carleton University in 2017, and I am currently completing my doctoral degree in clinical science and psychopathology at Western University. I am a member of the Canadian Psychological Association, the Ontario Psychological Association, the American Psychological Association, the Canadian Positive Psychology Association, the Association for Psychological Science, and the Association for Psychological Therapies.

I have had the opportunity to provide psychological services in a wide range of settings, including general hospitals, forensic hospitals, university mental health centres, and private practices. My clinical experience has included conducting assessments and providing treatment for a diverse population of children, adolescents, and adults living with a wide range of challenges, including mood and anxiety disorders, posttraumatic stress and trauma-related disorders, psychosis, obsessive-compulsive disorder, personality disorders, substance use disorders, behavioural and emotional regulation difficulties, chronic pain, and illness-related neurological disorders. At McKenzie Psychology, I have had the pleasure of working under the supervision of Dr. Kathryn Dance and Dr. Sandra McKenzie.

I seek to meet the unique and individual needs of my patients by developing a trusting and person-centred therapeutic environment where patients feel welcomed and understood. I am driven by a commitment to helping patients develop meaningful change and personal growth. I value the individuality of each person that I have the opportunity to work with and am consistently inspired by individuals’ strength and resilience in overcoming their personal challenges.
