She is currently working part-time as a clinical research fellow at Imperial College London and as a therapist at Connecte pending licensure as a clinical psychologist with the Order of Psychologists of Quebec. Her research focuses on the impact of mindfulness-based, psychedelics, and other novel therapeutic approaches in the treatment of depression, with a focus on how to cultivate wellbeing in treatment. She completed her clinical training within several community and hospital settings in Ontario, including the: Health and Wellness clinic for students at UofT; Occupational Stress and Trauma Recovery clinic at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH); Dialectical Behavioral Therapy program at Broadview Psychology; as well as the Operational Stress Injury, Mood and Anxiety, and Substance Use and Concurrent Disorders (for young adults) programs at the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Care Center.
As a psychologist, Lê-Anh works with adolescents and adults experiencing difficulties with depression, trauma, workplace/school stress, borderline personality, substance misuse, emotion dysregulation, interpersonal problems, and anxiety symptoms. She provides empirically-supported treatments such as DBT, CBT, ACT, and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy, while tailoring these approaches to each of her individual clients. In all of her work, Lê-Anh is empathic, compassionate, and caring. She focuses on clients’ strengths and resilience, believes in them, and is dedicated to helping them live healthy and meaningful lives.
In her spare time, Lê-Anh is an avid traveler and loves spending time outdoors, connecting with family and friends, discovering new restaurants, music, and art, as well as learning new skills (e.g., computer programming, crafting, cooking, dancing).
