Meet Dr. Marie-Eve Martel

I am a fully registered psychologist with the College of Psychologists of Ontario (#6475) as a doctoral level psychologist in autonomous practice with competency in clinical psychology with adults. I am fully bilingual and I am pleased to offer online psychological services in both English and French. 

I received a clinical Doctorate in Psychology (Psy.D.) from l’Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières in February 2018 and I am continuing research to obtain a Ph.D. diploma (dual doctorate Psy.D./Ph.D). Prior to my doctoral studies, I obtained an M.A. in Education (counselling) from the University of Ottawa in 2014.

Professional and Community Involvement

I highly value continued education and I am a member of the:

I have been attending the Association for Contextual Behavioral Science (ACBS) World Conferences every year between 2015 and 2018, where I have had the privilege to attend plenaries and workshops by world-renowned psychologists such as Steven C. Hayes (ACT founder), Kelly Wilson (ACT co-founder), Marsha Linehan (founder of DBT), Kristin Neff (self-compassion), Mavis Tsai (Functional Analytic Psychotherapy) and many others. I continuously strive to deepen my knowledge of evidence-based practices and to be informed of the latest research in order to better serve my clients.
