Dr. Michele Locke, Ph.D.

Michele Locke graduated with her doctorate from the Clinical Developmental Psychology program at the University of Guelph. Michele works with children, youth, and families using a variety of therapeutic approaches based on the needs of her clients. Her training and experience is primarily in cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy (TF-CBT), and dialectical-behaviour therapy (DBT).

Michele strives to work collaboratively with her clients in an effort to provide a positive therapeutic experience. Her goal is to ensure clients and families are active participants in developing treatment goals and plans, in order to best facilitate positive change. Michele aims to provide the most appropriate evidence-based care, though ensuring interventions are individualized to meet client needs. She believes strongly in the importance of promoting resilience, building interpersonal strengths, early intervention, and open dialogue/collaboration with her clients. Where possible and appropriate, Michele aims to include caregivers in children’s care.

Prior to joining Broadview Psychology, Michele completed her internship in an inpatient secure treatment setting, working with youth with urgent mental health concerns (e.g., suicidal behaviour, non-suicidal self-injury, psychosis) and at McMaster Children’s Hospital working with children exposed to child maltreatment and complex trauma. Throughout her training, Michele also developed a particular interest in providing intervention services to children and adolescents struggling with Selective Mutism.

In her spare time, Michele enjoys being active, spending time with family and riends, and trying out new restaurants around the city.
