Our locations and what we offer

Training Opportunities

We are currently accepting applications for practicum and pre-doctoral psychology internship placements for September 2020 at either our Burlington or St. Catharines offices.

For training placements starting in September 2020, we will be reviewing applications in February and will respond to applicants by February 28th 2020 at the latest.

Please note, we are currently only training individuals who are on track to register with the College of Psychologists of Ontario (either as a psychologist or psychological associate).  At this point in time, the College of Psychologists prohibits psychologists from supervising individuals who are seeking to register with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. As such, we cannot provide a practicum to individuals planning to register with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario.

Psychology Internship Program

The primary aim of the psychology internship program is to ensure the student’s development of Core Competencies (as outlined by the Canadian Psychological Association, American Psychological Association, and the College of Psychologists of Ontario) so that they are prepared adequately to enter their year of supervised practice as a psychologist by the end of the training year. The program aims to develop adequate levels of proficiency across basic areas of clinical psychology, including assessment, therapy, consultation, attention to issues of diversity and individual difference, professional issues, and clinical research.

Applications (including a cover letter and CV) can be submitted to the director of clinical training, Dr. Lesley Miller.
