Anna H. Park (she/her/hers) is a therapist and Clinical Psychology PhD Candidate at McMaster University, providing services both in-person and virtually. She specializes in evidence-based assessment and treatment of anxiety, depression, and trauma-related concerns in adults. Specifically, Anna supports individuals experiencing generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, illness anxiety disorder/health anxiety, panic disorder, agoraphobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), specific phobias, insomnia, emotion dysregulation, depression, and other stress-related concerns. She also specializes in working with clients experiencing post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and trauma-related symptoms. For her PhD dissertation topic, Anna studied symptoms of PTSD and dissociation among Canadian military members, veterans, and first responders, with published research in peer-reviewed scientific journals.

Anna has extensive training in evidence-based approaches including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT). Depending on clients’ concerns and preferences, she flexibly integrates Motivational Interviewing (MI), Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), and mindfulness skills. Anna brings a warm, compassionate, non-judgmental, and authentic approach to therapy. Her focused yet flexible style makes her effective in supporting clients to achieve their goals. She strives to make therapy helpful and collaborative for clients.

Anna completed a CPA-accredited pre-doctoral Clinical Psychology Residency in the Fraser Health Authority, with rotations at the Cardiac Psychology Clinic, Consultation-Liaison Psychiatry Service, Outpatient Mental Health and Substance Use Clinic, and the Inpatient Psychiatry Unit. She worked with both inpatient and outpatient populations experiencing a range of concerns including significant health problems (e.g., cardiac health), PTSD, anxiety, mood disorders, and personality disorders.

In addition, Anna trained at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto, providing group and individual DBT to individuals experiencing depression, anxiety, trauma-related concerns, and/or borderline personality disorder symptoms (Integrated Day Treatment). She also co-led group therapy for individuals experiencing PTSD following a traumatic workplace injury, including first responders, military members, and other service workers (Work, Stress, & Health Program). Prior to this, at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton, Anna provided evidence-based assessment and treatment to patients experiencing anxiety, depression, and insomnia at the Anxiety Treatment and Research Clinic (ATRC), Mood Disorders Clinic, and Sleep Disorders Clinic.

Anna earned her Master of Science in Evolutionary and Comparative Psychology at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland, UK; and completed her Bachelor of Science (Psychology and Art History) at McGill University in Montréal.

Anna was born in Seoul, South Korea, and immigrated to Toronto as a child. She fell in love with the west coast during her Clinical Psychology Residency and now lives in BC. Outside of her practice, she enjoys travelling, experiencing diverse cultures and foods, listening to podcasts, snowboarding, running, and meeting new dogs.
