Adam Rossi, Ph.D., C. Psych.

I am a registered clinical psychologist who specializes in the treatment of mood, anxiety, and personality disorders. I assist patients in gaining a clearer understanding of themselves through the psychotherapy process, while learning skills to better manage symptoms of depression, anxiety, ADHD, PTSD, and a variety of other clinical presentations. I have experience working with individuals who have a history of trauma, and who may be struggling with relationship, family and employment-related difficulties.

I have also worked extensively with members of the 2SLGBTQI+ community, and individuals belonging to diverse cultural, religious, and racial backgrounds. I am also a good fit for artists and other creatively inclined individuals.

I completed a bachelor's degree (Hons.) in Psychology from the University of Winnipeg before completing my doctoral studies at Columbia University. I received post-doctoral training at Mt. Sinai Services/Elmhurst Hospital Center in Queens, NY, before working for several years as a Supervising Psychologist at Jacobi Medical Center in the Bronx, NY.

I believe in building a healthy and challenging therapeutic relationship in which you can identify and address the obstacles that prevent you from making important changes in your life. I individualize my approach to your unique goals and needs, and draw from psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioural, interpersonal and mindfulness-based modalities of psychological treatment. I will help you form connections between your 'here-and-now' struggles and past experiences that have shaped you as a person.

I look forward to the opportunity of working with you to build personal insight and help you work towards making meaningful change.

She received a Master's and Ph.D. from the University of Manitoba and has trained throughout the years in a variety of approaches including psychodynamic, behavioural, cognitive behavioural, mindfulness, short-term solution oriented therapy, family therapy, group therapy and hypnosis.
