Dr. Joelle LeMoult

Joelle received her PhD in Clinical Psychology from the University of Miami in 2012 and completed her clinical internship at St. Joseph’s Healthcare, Hamilton. The overarching goal of her research is to further our understanding of the onset, maintenance, and recurrence of Major Depressive Disorder (MDD). Using a multimodal approach, she examines the cognitive, emotional, and biological responses to environmental stressors that contribute to symptoms of depression and comorbid anxiety disorders.

Research Interests: Depression and psychobiological responses to stress; understanding how depression develops and unfolds across the lifespan; integrating cognitive, biological, and emotional measures to better elucidate the link between stress and depression.
