Dr. Jennifer Metcalf


Dr. Metcalf obtained her PhD in Clinical Psychology from the University of Ottawa in 2014 and is registered with the College of Psychologists of Ontario. She provides psychological assessment and treatment services for children, youth, and adults with suspected or confirmed Autism Spectrum Disorder, intellectual disabilities, learning disorders, ADHD, giftedness, and/or anxiety. She has been part of the Emerging Minds team since 2008: first as a PhD student in training and subsequently as a full-time associate. Prior to pursuing her doctoral degree, Jennifer provided Intensive Behavioural Intervention, Applied Behavioural Analysis, and life skills coaching to children with Autism. She also worked with children of all ages in her roles as a swimming instructor and research assistant for many years. When she is not working, Jennifer enjoys nature, stand-up comedy, walking her rescue dog, and learning new things. Dr. Metcalf is interested in the emerging issue of screen/internet addiction and the impact of technology on the developing brains of children and youth. With the goal of incorporating this interest into her clinical practice, Dr. Metcalf is in the process of pursuing continuing education in this area.

All appointments with Dr. Metcalf are at our location at 97 Hinton Avenue North.

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Dr. Metcalf is meeting with current clients exclusively via telehealth (i.e. secure videoconferencing and telephone) until further notice.
