Join our Team

Here at Laura Gatien and Associates, we are a private therapy practice committed to removing barriers to mental health treatment. We strive to practice what we preach - to be open, humble, kind, sharing, and helpful - to be human. We laugh at ourselves and work hard to normalize imperfection.


We model relational intimacy and vulnerability - we feel both are crucial for healing and resilience. We are a family who values innovation, openness, respectful practices and above all, we enjoy what we do and and why we do it. 


We are also extremely passionate about continuing education, teaching others, and helping to shape the minds and experiences of the next generation of mental health professionals through our Intern Program.

When we have open positions for both our Fredericton and Saint John locations, we post them below. If you don't see a position listed, feel free to reach out if you think you might be a good fit for Laura Gatien and Associates.

We value those qualified applicants with lived experience as racialized people, Indigenous people, those who have experienced homelessness, mental illness, and who have diverse abilities, as well as people of all sexual orientations and of all gender expressions.
