My style is solution-focused; we'll define what you want to work on,
and then create a specific plan to address it.
I will be going on maternity leave from mid-July 2019 until August 2020.
If you’re interested in beginning therapy in the new year, feel free to contact me and be added to a waitlist.
If you’d like to start therapy before then, I’ll be supervising Anne Julien, who has space for several new clients.

How do you know whether seeing a therapist might be helpful for you? Some people have a specific goal or issue that they want to work on. Other times, its not so obvious… people might start therapy because something feels “off” and they can’t figure out what it is, or because they feel “stuck”.
Issues we help treat through therapy:
Hilary Duncan received her PhD from the Clinical and Research Psychology program at Concordia University and is a member of the Order of Psychologists of Quebec. She is registered as both a clinical psychologist and neuropsychologist. Hilary’s clinical training experiences have been diverse and include working in the Jewish General Hospital Memory Clinic, an inpatient stroke ward and outpatient neurorehabilitation clinic at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, the OCD and ADHD clinics at the Allen Memorial Institute, and at several private clinics (Blake Psychology, Neurotherapy Montreal, and the Canadian Institute for Obsessive Compulsive Disorders). Her clinical focus and interests include working with ADHD, health disorders (chronic pain, irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia), concussion, and OCD. She also works with clients who are struggling with difficult life concerns (e.g., trouble within a relationship, difficulties at work, adjustment to major life events). Hilary’s approach to therapy is integrative - drawing on schema-based, interpersonal, cognitive-behavioural, and acceptance-based modalities. Her style is friendly, casual and laid-back.
Anne is a Ph.D. candidate in Clinical Psychology at Concordia University. She has received training working with adults suffering from mood and anxiety disorders, and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorders (ADHD). She received extensive training in specialized cognitive behavioural therapy for obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) and worked with patients dealing with a variety of obsessions and rituals such as those surrounding contamination, harm, and sexuality. Ms. Julien’s therapeutic approach is integrative, drawing her interventions from evidence-based treatments protocols tailored to the needs of her clients. Above all, she believes in a warm and open environment in which collaborative work will lead the client towards its goals. Anne works in both French and English.
I treat adults struggling with ADHD, anxiety, anger, post-concussion symptoms, obsessive-compulsive disorder, chronic health or neurological conditions, as well as other psychological conditions or difficult life concerns (trouble with procrastination and organizing, difficulties at work, adjustment to major life events).
I use scientifically-validated treatment approaches, which include Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, specialized Cognitive Behaviour Therapy for OCD, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Schema-Focused Therapy, and cognitive rehabilitation techniques.

I’m fairly laid-back and casual – I think that therapy works best when it feels natural.
I like to work collaboratively, meaning that you’ll have an active role in planning what we work on together.
