A Little About Me

Dr. Shireen Abuhatoum, Ph.D., C.Psych.

I am a Registered Psychologist with the College of Psychologists of Ontario, practicing in the area of Clinical Psychology. I completed my Ph.D. and M.A. degree at Concordia University in Montreal and I obtained my Honour’s B.Sc. from the University of Toronto. I completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in the Borderline Personality Disorder Clinic, where I received rigorous training in Dialectical Behaviour Therapy and comprehensive psychodiagnostic assessments. My predoctoral residency was also completed at CAMH in the rotations of the Borderline Personality Disorder Clinic and the Mood and Anxiety Ambulatory Service.

Over the course of my career and training, I have provided assessment and treatment services across a variety of settings including CAMH, St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton (inpatient and outpatient units), Royal Victoria Hospital, McGill University Health Centre, and private practices. My work in these settings has provided me with extensive experience in assessing and treating individuals with a wide range of mental health concerns. Most especially, I have specialized knowledge and expertise in areas of Dialectical Behaviour Therapy for Borderline Personality Disorder, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and Cognitive Processing Therapy for trauma.
