Dr. Faye Doell is a registered psychologist who received her doctoral degree in Clinical Psychology from York University. Her clinical experience includes work and training with a wide range of treatment approaches in a variety of clinical settings, and the breadth in her training allows her to draw on a variety of theoretical orientations in order to tailor individualized treatment plans for each of her clients. Dr. Doell is known for her warm, empathic, and collaborative style, her generosity of spirit, her intelligence, and her sense of humour.
Dr. Doell’s area of specialization is adult mental health. She provides treatment to individuals who are living with psychosis, mood and anxiety disorders, interpersonal problems, histories of trauma, and those experiencing difficult life transitions. Dr. Doell also specializes in treating couples who are experiencing relationship distress.
Dr. Doell’s early clinical experiences and training in the area of severe and complex mental health issues has lead her to concentrate her focus on adults who are living with longstanding and complex difficulties. Her dedication to helping individuals who have historically not had access to evidence-based psychotherapy, and in helping individuals who are struggling to make sustained and meaningful changes in their lives lead her to seek out additional training in both cognitive behavioural therapy for psychosis (CBTp) and in motivational interviewing. Dr. Doell’s approach to working with couples is informed by her research on communication and relationship satisfaction, and is focused on helping couples to reduce conflicts and enhance their enjoyment of their relationship.
In addition to her work in private practice, Dr. Doell currently holds a position as Clinical Lead of the CBT for Psychosis Service in the Complex Care & Recovery Program at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH). In this role, she has been responsible for developing group and individual programming in CBTp, providing leadership for capacity building initiatives, and establishing a comprehensive training program in CBT for psychosis for students, residents and staff at CAMH.
Dr. Doell is also an adjunct faculty member at York University, where she has previously taught several undergraduate courses and provided supervision to graduate student therapists in the York University Psychology Clinic. In addition, she is a member of the Motivational Interviewing Network of Trainers, and she provides training to professionals who are interested in learning motivational interviewing.
