Dr. Annette Dufresne

I am a registered psychologist with the College of Psychologists of Ontario. I completed a Ph.D. in adult clinical psychology at the University of Windsor. My doctoral level education provided me with a foundation in psychological theories, understanding and conducting research, and psychologically based methods for helping people. I have a strong belief in the importance of continuing education, and I have sought out many workshops, conferences, and training opportunities to continue my professional growth.

I have over 25 years of clinical experience, working in several different settings and with many different types of problems. I have worked in private practice, in a community mental agency, in a rehabilitation-focused agency, in community corrections, and in a university setting providing training and supervision with graduate students.

At McKenzie Psychology, I conduct psychoeducational assessments with adults. In my assessment work, the focus is on helping to better understand both areas of strength and areas of weakness. The goal is to identify supports and strategies that will help individuals set a path that will work for them.

I deeply appreciate my work as a psychologist, and I feel I have grown so much through my interactions with patients. I try to bring an approach of having respect and compassion in all of my work, as I appreciate that people are often sharing quite personal and vulnerable information.
