Dr. Joshua Dunn, Registered Psychologist

About Me

I have been providing psychotherapy for almost 15 years treating adolescents, adults, and couples. I graduated from the University of Alberta with a Ph.D. in Counselling Psychology. As a Registered Psychologist I have worked in a variety of settings including an adolescent treatment centre, school and corrections facilities, a community clinic, university setting, and a specialized clinic for military and RCMP personnel/veterans. I continue to operate a private practice in central Edmonton. Other professional activities include supervising provisional psychologists, workshop training, and serving as an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the University of Alberta. I have published research in various areas including perfectionism and depression/anxiety.

 

Treatment Specialities

I have received extensive training from world leaders in the treatment of Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). My approaches to treating PTSD include:  Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Virtual Reality Therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Prolonged Exposure (PE) Therapy. I offer individual therapy for PTSD as well as supervise and provide consultation to other professionals in this area.

I am trained in a variety of individual therapies; however, my predominant approach to treatment is guided by Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I treat numerous client issues ranging from depression and anxiety to self-esteem and relationship difficulties.

I am also trained in marital and couples therapy. In working with partner relationship problems I strive to help couples grow in areas of difficulty and make important decisions about their future.

I have years of assessment experience providing disability, treatment, return-to-work, and rehabilitation assessments for insurance providers, lawyers, RCMP Health Services, and Veterans Affairs Canada.
