She was faculty in the Department of Psychology at Concordia University for 27 years where she taught graduate level seminars on theoretical models of behaviour change as well as supervised students in the Applied Psychology Center.

Her most recent publication, entitled Understanding Yourself and Your Relationships: Notes From a Therapist’s Desk  was written for people interested in human relationships and dynamics. 

Dr. Frank’s primary therapeutic orientation is psychodynamic, an approach that encourages clients to examine the reasons for repetitive behavior patterns, to appreciate their contributions to these patterns, and to explore the motives of significant others. Dr. Frank values transparency in her supervisory style and her warmth and humour makes her a pleasure to work with.

Dr. Frank is a current member of L’Ordre des Psychologues du Québec (Permit #00996-68).

We look forward to working with you!
