About

I am currently on a hiatus from clinical work, and can be reached at contact@yaacovlefcoe.com

Yaacov Lefcoe, Ph.D, C.Psych has worked in psychotherapy and psychological assessment since the mid-1990s in various clinical and educational settings in Canada and overseas. He has trained and utilized person-centred psychotherapy, process-experiential therapy, family systems approaches, cognitive therapy, psychoanalytic psychotherapy, mindfulness-based and transpersonal approaches.

Yaacov brings this breadth of training and experience to bear in a manner best described as “humanistic”, and “experiential,” meaning to prize and respect the experience of each individual, and to place that experience at the very centre of the collaborative work of psychotherapy.

As a researcher and theorist in psychology, Yaacov has written about the psychology of human spirituality, religiosity, and ultimate concerns. His doctoral dissertation focused upon the description of personality change in long-term meditative practice.
