Dr. Leann Lapp, Ph.D.
Psychologist

Leann Lapp graduated with a PhD in Clinical Psychology from Ryerson University. She works with adolescents, adults, and older adults experiencing issues such as depression, anxiety (generalized anxiety, health anxiety, social anxiety, phobias, panic disorder), OCD, insomnia, psychosis, and personality disorders. She provides empirically-supported treatments such as CBT and DBT, tailoring these approaches to each of her individual clients.

Prior to joining Broadview Psychology, she completed clinical training in a variety of settings including St. Michael’s Hospital, Baycrest Hospital, the Ryerson Student Counseling Centre, Humber River Regional Hospital, Ryerson University’s Sleep and Depression Research Lab, and CBT Associates. Outside of her clinical work, she conducts research focused on healthy cognitive aging, specifically with respect to how motivation, goals, and memory change as we age. In addition to understanding cognitive aging, she believes in challenging negative stereotypes about aging, as well as those regarding mental health more broadly.

Leann also has a background in neuroscience, having received her BA/BSc in Biology and Philosophy from McGill University, and her MSc in Brain and Mind Sciences from the University College London/University Pierre and Marie Curie in Paris, France. While she strongly values research, science, and empiricism, she also takes a critical perspective in how these methods produce knowledge.

Outside of work, Leann spends most of her time playing sports and hopes to work with athletes one day. She also loves exploring cities, good books, and music.
