Jasmine G. Lee, M.Sc.
Life’s challenges and hardships can be stressful and may feel overwhelming at times. The decision to seek help is not always easy. Choosing the right clinician for you means having a collaborator throughout this process to work together towards better understanding yourself and improving your wellness. I commend you for taking this first step and I look forward to being part of your wellness journey.
I am currently pursuing my PhD in Clinical Psychology at the University of Ottawa. At the Centre for Interpersonal Relationships, I am completing a practicum under the supervision of Dr. Mark Coates, C.Psych. My clinical interests include neuropsychological conditions and psychiatric disorders such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, the assessment of cognitive functioning in head injury, as well as neurodegenerative disorders such as dementia.
In our first session, we will work together to establish your therapeutic goals. I will provide my professional perspective on how we could achieve these goals together, what the process might look like as well as some of the evidence-based tools that we might use. I will conduct comprehensive assessments that are evidence-based and backed by leading research in the field. These assessments will be tailored to your needs and goals, and will help you deepen your understanding of your cognitive profile. I will carefully interpret the results and provide you with detailed feedback, recommendations, and reports. Together, we will identify avenues to implement next steps on your journey. I have previous practicum experience providing services at the Centre for Psychological Services and Research. I completed my M.Sc. in Neuroscience at McGill University, where I conducted research on the neurobiology of language. My current doctoral research explores how bilingualism influences cognition and brain function to prevent cognitive decline in aging such as in Alzheimer’s Disease. I have published scientific papers in leading journals and presented at international and national conferences on neuropsychology. I am a member of the Canadian Psychological Association, the American Psychological Association, and the National Academy of Neuropsychology.
