Dr Maureen Gorman

RPsych (Registered Psychologist)

  • Highest Academic Graduate Degree: PhD
  • Gender: Female
  • NSBEP Reg. # R0229

I received my training at University of Guelph BA Hons 1973, MA Applied 1975 and York University (PhD 1983).

I worked for over 25 years with clients over 50 and their caregivers in a hospital setting. Now in full time Private Practice, I work with adults of all ages and adolescents who are bereaved.

My interests evolved over the years from child psychology (e.g., children’s concepts of death) to thanantology (death) and grief, to developmental problems throughout the lifespan (e.g., transition into retirement) to problems associated with aging (e.g. late life depression, Alzheimer’s Disease). I enjoy working with adults, couples, and groups experiencing stress, unhappiness, anxiety and for trauma.

A developmental focus continues to help me help clients sort out viable options for themselves, such as in the areas of stress management and problems coping (work and personal), trauma, communication problems, adjustment and loss issues, death and dying, feeling “overwhelmed,” self-esteem and empowerment issues; and more often than not when several problems are present at one time. I enjoy working with clients as well as conducting psychoeducational workshops in small or large group settings and professional training workshops.
