He is experienced with a wide range of mental health conditions, including mood disorders (e.g., Major Depressive Disorder, Persistent Depressive Disorder) and anxiety disorders (e.g., Social Anxiety Disorder, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Specific Phobias, Panic Disorder), Posttraumatic Stress Disorder. He also works with individuals experiencing emotion regulation concerns (e.g., increasing understanding of emotions, reducing the frequency, intensity, and duration of difficult emotions). Dr. Hatchard uses cognitive-behavioural therapy for mood and anxiety disorders, cognitive-processing therapy for PTSD, and dialectical behaviour therapy for emotion regulation concerns.
Dr. Hatchard received his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Ottawa and completed his predoctoral residency at the Centre for Psychological Services and Research in 2018. He is currently a full-time assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioural Neuroscience at McMaster University, which is integrated with his clinical role as a psychologist at the Youth Wellness Centre, an early intervention program for transition-aged youth (17 to 25), at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton, where he has been working since 2019. Prior to youth wellness, Dr. Hatchard worked in the Mood Disorders Program at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton from 2018 to 2019. Within his university hospital position, Dr. Hatchard provides direct clinical care, clinical supervision to a variety of learners (e.g., psychology practicum students and residents, psychiatry residents), and clinical consultation to professionals. His current research is related to understanding the impact of minority stress on mental health among marginalized communities.
