Dr. Lisa Keith
I received my doctorate in Psychology from the University of Windsor in 1996. Following this, I served as a psychologist with the University of Manitoba's Rural and Northern Program, providing a wide range of psychological services in Northern Manitoba.
In September 1999, I returned to Ontario and joined a clinic specializing in psychological assessment and treatment services for adults recovering from motor vehicle accident trauma. In April 2004, I opened my own practice in order to expand into other areas of mental health.
My clinical expertise includes psychological assessment and treatment of First Responders suffering from posttraumatic stress and occupational injuries, as well as adults struggling with depression, anxiety, childhood trauma, terminal and chronic illness, domestic violence, and intimate relationship conflicts.
I use a combination of Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical-Behavior Therapy, and EMDR (Eye Movement and Desensitization and Reprocessing) strategies to help people reduce the impact of their distress on daily lives. I am registered with the College of Psychologists of Ontario and an EMDRIA Certified Therapist.
My research background has focused on cross-cultural and aboriginal aspects of mental health, sexuality and body image, and practice concerns in rural and northern Canada. I have taught university and college courses in general psychology, abnormal and clinical psychology, the psychology of women, cross-cultural mental health, and stress management.
Dr. Karen Ip
I received my Ph.D. in Adult Clinical Psychology from the University of Windsor in 2011. I have over 6 years of experience providing psychotherapy to adults, and have worked in diverse settings including the Life Stress Centre at Detroit Receiving Hospital, and Victim Services of Windsor and Essex County. I completed an accredited internship at the London Health Sciences Centre that included rotations at the Operational Stress Injury Clinic, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy Unit, and Epilepsy Unit. I joined Dr. Keith's practice in October 2011.
My clinical interests include chronic depression, trauma, grief, and low self-esteem. I have a warm and client-centred therapeutic style, and I strive first and foremost to provide a safe and healing environment for clients. I have an integrative approach to psychotherapy that incorporates elements of cognitive-behavioural and emotion-focused therapy. I work closely with clients to individualize my approach to best help meet their needs and goals.
My research interests include dieting, body image, obesity, and stereotyping. I have published this research in academic journals such as the Journal of Emotional Abuse and Body Image.
Mr. Shane Anderson
I have been with Dr. Keith's practice since 2021 as the Office Manager, handling a variety of duties which include reception detail, scheduling appointments, assisting our clinicians, dealing with auto insurers, responding to legal requests, and hundreds of "little things" that arise on a daily basis in a cheerful and welcoming manner. I keep the office running smoothly and ensure that the process from your initial phone call to booking appointments is a pleasant and efficient experience. I work hard to recognize and fulfill our clients' special needs and requests. I greet our clients and make sure they are as comfortable as possible when visiting our office.
