Lynn Corbett, Ph.D.,
Registered Doctoral Psychologist (#234)
Lynn completed her Ph.D. in the Department of Psychology at the University of Saskatchewan in 1996. She finished her clinical residency at the Ottawa Hospital. Since that time, she has been employed in private practice as well as in various community-based mental health clinics, including a university-based counselling agency, community mental health clinics offered through regional health authorities, and EFAP programs. She has been trained in working with children, adolescents and adults. Her current clinical focus is with adults. Although she draws on a variety of theoretical perspectives in her clinical work, she works primarily from collaborative and narrative approaches, which at their foundation are client-directed, and resilience-focused. The emphasis on social context in the development of life difficulties and in efforts to address them is central in her work. Working with people to create their preferred ways of living is a passion and continued source of inspiration for Lynn. Her work is also influenced by principles of mindfulness and the desire to be present in life. Lynn feels privileged to be able to do the work that she does.
In addition to her clinical practice, Lynn is an adjunct faculty member with the Department of Psychology at the University of Saskatchewan. Working alongside the next generation of psychologists is incredibly rewarding for Lynn. She trains PhD students in clinical practica at the University of Saskatchewan Psychology Clinic, teaches graduate level classes in psychotherapy, and serves as a committee member on various doctoral student research projects.
Some of Lynn’s favorite things to do include yoga, reading, running, being with friends and family, and spending lots of time with her daughter.
