Bryanne Harris

Bryanne Harris, MA is a Registered Psychologist working in private practice at True North Psychological Services in Kingston, NS. After having her own child in 2017, Ms. Harris became increasingly aware of the lack of resources for maternal mental health in Nova Scotia and decided to specialize in therapeutic work with perinatal and postpartum women. She therefore attended post-graduate training with Karen Kleiman at the Postpartum Stress Centre in Philadelphia, USA and then attended the Maternal Mental Health Certificate Training for Mental Health and Clinical Professionals through Postpartum Support International. Ms. Harris has been approved to write the Perinatal Mental Health Certification exam and will do so in the coming months and is working toward a provincial initiative to improve supports for women facing perinatal mood and anxiety disorders. In addition to her work with perinatal women, Bryanne has spent the majority of her work treating military veterans, first responders and their families for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Currently, Ms. Harris uses both a cognitive-behavioural (CBT) approach, in addition to Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) in her therapy.
