My name is Lisa Moores and I am a Doctoral Resident in Professional Psychology at Memorial University of Newfoundland's Counselling Centre. I am also a candidate for the Doctor of Psychology (PsyD) degree at Memorial and a member of the inaugural cohort. I began my graduate training with a master’s degree in Counselling Psychology and my doctorate is in Clinical Psychology. Over the course of my training, I have been strongly influenced by humanistic, experiential, and interpersonal theories of psychotherapy and have integrated these approaches, as well as a variety of interventions, in my current practice. I am particularly interested in cross-cultural psychology and working with international students, as well as other individuals in transition. This residency provided me with an excellent opportunity to work with a diverse client population and hone my skills in this area. The quality supervision and training offered a balance between challenge and support that furthered my professional development and I enjoyed the autonomy. I also appreciated the wide array of experiences offered at this site and the opportunity to initiate my own activities based on personal learning objectives. Following residency I look forward to moving into teaching, research, and clinical opportunities in the local area.
