DR. LINDSAY BOROVAY, C. PSYCH.

Psychologist

Dr. Lindsay Borovay received her Bachelor's Degree (Honours) from Queen's University and her Master's Degree and Ph.D., from McGill University. She has worked both within the hospital and school setting. Her previous work experiences at the Sir Mortimer B. Davis Jewish General Hospital and the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) have provided extensive experience working with children, adolescents, and families dealing with various psychological and social-emotional difficulties. Dr. Borovay has also worked at the Lester B. Pearson School Board in Montreal where she provided assessment, intervention, counselling and consultation to teachers, parents, and students at both the elementary and high school levels.    

​Dr. Borovay has been working within the private practice setting since 2008 and enjoys working collaboratively with her clients in a supportive environment. She has extensive experience in providing comprehensive psycho-educational and psychological assessments as well as treatment for anxiety, depression, ADHD, Learning Disabilities, behavioral issues, as well as relationship issues. When working therapeutically, Dr. Borovay believes in the importance of first understanding the client’s experience to identify the underlying and unmet need, before moving toward shifting behavior. She hopes that through developing a greater awareness of the positive impact strong relational bonds have on a child's neurological, social and emotional development, parents can shift their approach to first understanding and "sitting" with their child's emotional experience, before reacting to the observable behavior. Through skills training, the development of coping strategies, and through developing greater insight and self-awareness, her clients will experience improvement in their relationships and day-to-day functioning. 

Dr. Borovay enjoys working with clients and families as well as consulting professionals in the youth camping industry. Leaning into her passion and experience working at camps, Dr. Borovay consults camp professionals, facilitates staff development and training as well as leadership programming for campers/youth, and strategic planning for the development of camper care teams to various residential summer camps. She sits on the Board of Directors for an Ottawa Area Private School as well as the Learning Disability Association of the Ottawa-Carleton region. She is also a co-developer of the Parenting Workshop series for the Canadian Women in Medicine Organization (CWIM).

 

Dr. Borovay maintains memberships in national, provincial, and local psychological associations and keeps up to date on current developments in the field by regularly attending post-graduate educational workshops and lectures.
