professionalDr. Sabina Sarin completed her Ph.D. in clinical psychology at McGill University and her Masters degrees (MSc., MPhil.) at Yale University. Currently a licensed clinical psychologist, and an assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry at McGill, Dr. Sarin has a decade of experience in researching and treating diverse psychological difficulties, including mood and anxiety disorders, eating disorders, sexual and relational difficulties, high risk behaviour, trauma and stress. She is also a certified yoga teacher and applies an eclectic and humanist approach in therapy that incorporates techniques from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Yoga and Mindfulness Therapy, Interpersonal/ Dynamic Therapy and Motivation interviewing. She believes, however, that the relationship between the client and therapist is at the heart of the therapeutic process and it is through this relationship the client acquires the insight, skills/ tools, and confidence necessary to make the life changes they seek.

To date, Sabina has worked with individuals, couples, families and groups in various public and private settings, including the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (Toronto, ON), the Yale Center for Eating and Weight Disorders (New Haven, CT), Yale Anxiety and Mood Services, the Youth Service at the Jewish General Hospital, the Sex & Couple Therapy Service at the Royal Victoria Hospital, and the Eating Disorder Program at the Douglas Institute of Mental Health.  She is currently working in private practice (near Vendome and Snowdon metro stations), offering daytime and evening hours, and is a certified member of l’Ordre des Psychologues du Quebec (providing insurance receipts).
