Tiffany Resends Therapist in Montreal at D2 Psychology Clinic

Tiffany Resendes

Tiffany is a doctoral candidate in Clinical Psychology at Concordia University. She has accrued vast experience in both assessment and psychotherapy in hospital, school, and community settings. In terms of assessment, Tiffany is trained in both psycho-diagnostic and psycho-educational evaluations. She has worked with diverse populations, and has extensive knowledge of neurodevelopmental (ASD, ADHD), learning (LD), and cognitive disorders (ID). Her therapeutic approach is grounded in third-wave cognitive behavioural therapy, borrowing from both acceptance and commitment therapy as well as dialectical behaviour therapy. Tiffany also received training in trauma-focused and family-based therapies. She has experience working with affective and anxiety disorders, as well as relational trauma and eating disorders.

 

Her doctoral research aims to unearth the associations between family functioning and mental health, especially in children of parents with affective disorders. In addition, her master’s research highlighted the association between preschoolers’ social development and socially-driven cognitive abilities. Together, her research interests readily inform her clinical work, and help her support her clients attain their full potential.
