Looking for a psychologist in the Gatineau & Ottawa region?

With over 750 psychologists in the Gatineau & Ottawa area, it is not so simple to choose the "right" psychologist.

We know that there are many different types of psychologists. Some are clinical and counselling psychologists, practitioners who provide psychotherapy and/or administer and interpret psychometric tools and tests. These professionals work primarily in private practices and in institutions such as hospitals, schools, clinics, and correctional facilities; their work can involve individuals, groups, and families, as well as public and private sector organizations, in whole or in part. There are also psychological professionals who work as researchers, in academic institutions, and in governmental and non-governmental organizations. Still others are active in both research and practice.

So how do I find the psychological services I'm looking for?
