Health psychology

Our Health psychology service is one of several ambulatory care clinics.

Its psychologists specialize in clinical psychology and health psychology for various populations. These professionals actively participate in the hospital's academic mission through their training and clinical supervision of trainees, interns and doctoral level residents in psychology. As professors and researchers in psychology and/or medicine, they are affiliated with the University of Ottawa and/or the Université du Québec en Outaouais. Our health psychologists also contribute to the hospital's academic mission by being research members at the Institut de recherche de l’Hôpital Montfort and by contributing to various research projects related to their clinical services. 

Our psychologists offer services to young people and adults (16 years of age or more). They also work with children, teens and their families.

Youth and Adult Services (16 years or more)

Dr. Paul Greenman, PhD, C. Psych.
Dr. Mélanie Joanisse, PhD, C. Psych.

Our psychological services primarily consist of assessment, consultation and short-term treatment for youths and adults. Their services are offered to help patients better manage, and live with, various chronic diseases including, but not limited to, sleep disorders, heart disease, diabetes, chronic pain, lung disease, and others. They may also present mental health problems commonly seen in a primary care context. A health psychologist also offers her services within the Chronic Disease Management Service.

Psychological services mainly include evaluation, consultation and short-term treatment. Interventions are adapted to the needs of individuals, couples or groups. Health psychology consultations are also available for health professionals and care teams.

We accept requests for consultations from ambulatory care clinics, and family physicians with privileges at Montfort. These requests must be sent directly to the Health psychology service by internal mail to room 1D 114, or by fax to 613‑748‑4995.   

Services for Children and Teens (age 4 to 16 years) and their Families

Sébastien Normand, PhD, C. Psych.

As a complement to the Pediatric clinic, we offer psychological services (assessment, consultation and short-term treatment) to children, teens and their families. These young patients struggle with attention deficits, hyperactivity, learning disorders, behavioural problems or other mental health problems commonly seen in a pediatric context (anxiety disorders, depression, eating disorders, etc.). Our interventions are adapted to individuals, families or groups.
