Dr. Ouimet, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor in the Clinical Psychology Program, part of the School of Psychology at the University of Ottawa. She is also a licensed Clinical Psychologist with the College of Psychologists of Ontario.
She joined uOttawa in 2014, after completing her Ph.D in Clinical Psychology at Concordia University, which included a pre-doctoral residency in the Anxiety Treatment and Research Centre (ATRC) and Borderline Personality Disorder Service (DBT Program) at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton. She completed her M.Sc. at the University of Western Ontario and her B.A. at Concordia University. Dr. Ouimet is the director of the CADRe Lab, and her research investigates how different types of cognition impact the development, maintenance, and treatment of anxiety disorders. She is particularly interested in integrating fine-grained measurement of cognitive biases with cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) models of anxiety. Dr. Ouimet is currently the Editor-in-Chief for Canadian Journal of Behavioural Science, and on the Associate Editorial Board of Behaviour Research and Therapy. She has presented her research at several national and international conferences, and published in a variety of scientific journals.
Dr. Ouimet teaches graduate and undergraduate courses related to psychopathology, CBT, and cognition in English and French. She also supervises doctoral students in the provision of psychological services at uOttawa’s Centre for Psychological Services and Research. She has a small private practice where she provides assessment, psychotherapy, and small-group workshops related to managing anxiety (currently remote due to the pandemic).
