Amy Gregory is a doctoral student in McGill University’s Clinical Psychology program and a trainee clinician at Connecte Montreal Psychology Group. Amy received her bachelor’s degree in Psychology with a minor in Counselling Psychology from the University of California, Santa Barbara. Her research explores the relationship between self and identity and interpersonal skills, such as empathy and social support. She is also interested in how the clarity of one’s self-concept can support better and more stable wellbeing.
Amy has conducted clinical work at the Virginia Douglas Clinical Psychology Centre, the Anxiety Program at the McGill University Health Centre, and the Montreal Children’s Hospital. She has experience with treating anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and distress relating to transitions and uncertainty within one’s identity. Amy grounds her clinical approach in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), and integrates techniques from dialectical behavioural therapy (DBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), and compassion-focused therapy (CFT). She works to create a validating and supportive atmosphere in which clients can explore issues relating to identity, self-esteem, and self-worth.
Outside of the office, Amy enjoys sailing, reading, reality television, and exploring Montreal with her dog, Cooper.
