About Linnaea Chapman
I am a registered Occupational Therapist with eight years of practice experience working in community mental health settings within the public health service. I specialize in providing evidence-based psychotherapy to adults (19+) struggling with anxiety, problems with emotion regulation, depression, personality disorders including Borderline Personality Disorder, suicidality and self-harming behaviors, trauma, substance use issues and PTSD. I also have experience working with individuals with psychotic disorders such as schizophrenia. I graduated with a Masters of Science in Occupational Therapy from Dalhousie university in 2014 and after briefly working in physical medicine I pursued my passion of working in the mental health field.
I am certified by the Canadian Association of Cognitive and Behavioral Therapies (CACBT) and have training in many treatment modalities including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Motivational Interviewing for substance use, Prolonged Exposure (PE) and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) for PTSD.
In practice my values are around providing compassionate and collaborative care, working as a partner with my clients to help overcome challenges, improve quality of life and move forward with treatment goals. I strive to provide trauma-informed care in a warm, empathetic and accepting environment where clients feel safe, supported and empowered.
