A Psychologist is licensed to practice because he or she holds a doctoral degree in clinical psychology PhD, PsyD or EdD. This is one of the highest levels of education of any health care professionals. We can evaluate a person’s mental health because we are extensively trained and have the clinical skills to administer and interpret psychological tests. We also do academic research within the profession. We can also test people’s core strengths such as cognitive strengths weakness, aptitudes, vocational ability, and or personality characteristics.

Psychologists can conduct clinical interviews, psychological evaluations, assessments and testing.

We are trained in ethics and abide to the standards and procedures set forth by the College of Psychologists of Ontario.

Psychologists can perform the controlled act of diagnosis. Following a diagnosis, we teach our clients effective coping strategies to promote positivity and a healthier outlook.


I work hard to help people to overcome or manage their problems using a multiplicity of evidence-based treatments and psychotherapy such as (CBT). I work within a range of illnesses, conditions and disorders. Not limited to anxiety, pain, complex trauma or mood disorders.

Sessions are one to one and consist of talk-therapy, such as in psychotherapy and work with a combination of therapy styles that fit a client’s preferences and unique characteristics.


A psychologist can help with mental health counselling. If someone is experiencing drastic changes in mood, emotional distress, thoughts or behaviours or issues that cannot be managed alone and are interfering with daily life, it may be time to seek help.  We can help people learn how to overcome illness, addiction, anxiety, depression, and further identify why a person may be behaving in a certain way, through testing, evaluations.



Believing in your own mental health and finding joy is more important than fearing what others think. You are not alone!!
