Psychologist/Neuropsychologist (Supervised Practice) (Adults, Seniors) - Burlington
Dr. Erica Tatham is a psychologist (supervised practice) providing psychotherapy and neuropsychological/psychological assessment to adults and seniors under the supervision of Dr. Narmeen Ammari, psychologist. Dr. Tatham completed her Ph.D. degree in Clinical Psychology at York University in 2022. She also completed a Masters in Clinical Psychology at York University and a Masters in Neuroscience at McMaster University.
Dr. Tatham’s primary areas of practice include neuropsychological assessment and psychotherapy. In assessment, she examines various conditions that effect the brain, such as traumatic brain injury, neurodegenerative disorders, neurodevelopmental disorders, and mental health conditions. In therapy, she values the opportunity to collaboratively explore an individual’s experience and provide a very supportive and non-judgmental space. Dr. Tatham uses an integrative style that includes emotion-focused, psychodynamic, cognitive behavioural, and client-centered therapies.
Dr. Tatham has gained treatment (i.e. psychotherapy) and assessment experiences in a variety of clinical settings, including Sunnybrook Hospital, Toronto Western Hospital (Epilepsy and Movement Disorders), the York University Psychology Clinic, and the Centre for Interpersonal Relationships. This training has provided her with fundamental knowledge on emotion processes and the relationship between brain and behaviour.
She was a recipient of the Vanier Graduate Scholarship, which is the most prestigious graduate scholarship in Canada, and is currently a member of the Canadian Psychological Association (CPA).
