Tyler Pritchard, BA (Hons; Grenfell), MA (Carlton), PhD Candidate (University of Guelph)
Tyler’s practice is guided by various evidence-based treatments including cognitive-behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and motivational interviewing. Tyler has supported children, young adults, and their families with a variety of emotional and behavioral concerns such as anxiety, mood, emotional regulation, self-esteem, and motivation to engage in health behaviors (e.g., nutrition, exercise). He hopes to help those he works with live a meaningful life, guided by their values.
In addition to his clinical work, Tyler has served as a sessional instructor at the University of Guelph and Grenfell Campus. He has a keen interest in research methods, statistics, and the philosophy of science. As a suicidologist, much of his research centers on understanding and supporting those engaging in self-injurious behaviors. In line with this, his dissertation focuses on understanding the unique mental health needs of individuals living in rural regions.
Tyler completed his MA at Carleton University and BA (Hons) at Memorial University. In addition, he has worked with the Upper Grand District School Board, McMasters Children’s Hospital, and the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario.
