Dr. Melissa Wuerch

I received my doctoral degree in clinical psychology from the University of Regina in Saskatchewan after completing my predoctoral residency with the London Clinical Psychology Residency Consortium (LCPRC) in Ontario. I am a member of the Canadian Psychological Association and the Ontario Psychological Association.

I have worked with children, adolescents, their families, and adults across a variety of settings, including community mental health clinics, general hospitals, tertiary mental health organizations, and rehabilitation centres. In Ontario, these include the Child and Parent Resource Institute (CPRI), the Eating Disorders Program at Victoria Hospital, the Health and Wellness Centre at Western University, and Maryvale Adolescent and Family Services. Within Saskatchewan, I have had the opportunity to work with the Regina Adult Mental Health Clinic, Regina Child and Youth Mental Health Services, the Bariatric Assessment Centre, Counselling Services at the University of Regina, and the Sunlife Financial Psychology Training Clinic. My professional experience has included providing assessment and treatment for a range of presenting concerns and difficulties, including mood and anxiety concerns, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, behavioural and emotional difficulties, trauma and attachment disturbances, autism spectrum disorder, eating disorders, intellectual disabilities, and learning concerns. I also provide assessment of learning disabilities.

My approach to clinical work is one that is person-centered and grounded in creating a safe, warm, and welcoming space. I value the opportunity to develop secure therapeutic relationships and to create a space that encourages reflection, growth, and meaningful change. I am honoured to work alongside individuals as they recognize, reflect, and build upon their inherent strengths and resilient nature to work through and overcome their challenges.
