Laura Herbert

I completed my master’s degree in social work at King’s University College at Western University in 2020, and I am currently completing my doctoral degree in school and applied child psychology at Western University. I am also a member of the Canadian Psychological Association and the Ontario Psychological Association. At McKenzie Psychology, I provide evidence-based assessment and intervention for children and adolescents under the supervision of Dr. Elizabeth Thornley.

Over the past several years, I have had the privilege of working with children, adolescents, adults, and families across a variety of clinical and community settings, such as hospitals and community mental health centres. I have experience providing assessment and intervention services for a range of challenges, such as behavioural and emotional regulation difficulties, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, mood and anxiety disorders, trauma, grief and loss, and eating disorders.

I bring a person- and family-centred lens to my work, aiming to tailor my approach to each individual’s unique needs and preferences. It is deeply important to me to take an open, curious, and collaborative stance in my practice, and I strive to create a space that fosters trust and safety for individuals of all backgrounds, identities, and abilities. I am inspired every day by the innate capacity for growth, healing, and resilience displayed by the children and families that I have the privilege to work with.
