Erika Nolan, B.A., Ph.D. Candidate

Erika is a PhD student in Clinical Psychology at McGill University. She completed her undergraduate studies at McGill University and is currently conducting her research at the Montreal Neurological Institute. Erika is completing most of her clinical training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy and Humanistic Therapy. However, Erika also draws from other modalities including mindfulness-based approaches, if these are better suited towards her clients’ needs.

Erika is flexible and open in her approach with every client, and aims to create a collaborative and goal-oriented therapeutic experience. Her goal is to help clients acquire the insight and tools to better manage their anxiety and overcome their difficulties and ultimately reach their highest potential. Alongside the clinical director, Stephane Bensoussan, she also offers psychometric assessments (e.g. ADHD, academic derogation, and cognitive and behavioural evaluations).

Erika’s favorite topics include neuropsychology, the mind-body connection, human motivation and increasing purpose in one’s life. She is interested in using the science of psychology to help her clients reach personal growth and fulfillment through their hardships.
