Psychologist (Supervised Practice) (Adults, Teens)
Dr. Hatchard provides treatment for teens and adults presenting with depression, anxiety disorders (e.g. social anxiety disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and specific phobias), posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), as well as for presenting concerns related to sexual health concerns, dating and relationship issues. Dr. Hatchard also has a special interest in providing supportive counselling for concerns related to sexuality and gender identity, working from a minority stress framework. He has a collaborative, client-centered approach to therapy, primarily rooted in Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy – CBT, integrating other evidence-based approaches in treatment as necessary (e.g. Emotion-Focused Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, and/or Mindfulness) in order to meet each individual’s unique needs.
Dr. Hatchard works out of our Burlington office on Thursdays and Fridays.
Dr. Hatchard completed his doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology at the University of Ottawa. He completed a pre-doctoral internship at the Centre for Psychological Services and Research (CPSR), where he provided assessment and treatment services to youth and adults. During his doctoral training, Dr. Hatchard completed clinical rotations at the Ottawa Hospital, Brockville General Hospital, Saint Vincent Hospital Complex Continuing Care, the Ottawa Institute of Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (OICBT), and the Ottawa Mindfulness Clinic. In addition to working at Brookside Psychologists, Dr. Hatchard holds a clinical position at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton.
He is a member of the Ontario Psychological Association (OPA) and the Canadian Professional Association for Transgender Health (CPATH).
Dr. Hatchard has been actively involved in a breadth of research throughout his doctoral training and has published a number of peer-reviewed journal articles, as well as presented his research internationally. He received recognition from the University of Ottawa for Excellence in Research in 2015, as well as for Excellence in Research and Clinical Practice in 2018. In addition, Dr. Hatchard is also passionate about increasing access to psychological services and improving client care for under-serviced populations. To this end, he has been involved in both a working group and a formal program evaluation on organizational cultural competency at the University of Ottawa.
