Linda Vandette-Gaudet joined our team in November of 2017. She has a bachelor's degree in psychology from the University of Ottawa and a Master's degree from l'Université de Moncton. She is a licensed psychologist with the College of Psychologist of New Brunswick since 1996.
She began her career in a mental health clinic in 1990 but shortly after she accepted a psychologist position at Dorchester Penitentiary in 1992. The correctional field remained her work environment until 2017. Throughout her career with Correctional Service Canada, she was actively involved with both the Critical Incident Stress Management (CISM) and the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) and acquired a wealth of knowledge with regards to stress management and mental health in the workplace.
In 2017, Linda made a conscious decision to follow her dream and transitioned to a new career in private practice. Her practice focuses on individual therapy with adults and elderly. She recognizes the importance of building a climate of trust and mutual respect to facilitate personal growth and help others improve the quality of their life. She offers evidence-based therapy like Cognitive-Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).
She provides psychological services in French and English to individuals facing difficulties related to:
- Professional burn out
- Work related issues (conflict with supervisor/colleagues; discrimination; harassment; abuse of authority)
- Stress Management
- Adjustment difficulties (serious illness, separation, divorce, retirement, etc.)
- Post traumatic stress
