How we can help
Psychotherapy is a transformational process that occurs in the connection between the client and the therapist. Psychotherapy is not simply a walk in the park or going for coffee with a friend who listens. Using therapies that are validated not by a hunch or the feelings they evoke, but by research, clinical training, and experience (e.g., cognitive behavioral, mindfulness, solution focused, psychodynamic, meaning centred), we provide an objective and compassionate approach to your circumstances. Our clients tell us that when online/self-help methods, coaching, or medication alone has failed – we have been successful!
PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSESSMENT AND CONSULTATION
The basic components of psychological assessment include a clinical interview, psychological testing, and observation. The time, cost, and other components of an assessment are driven by its purpose and complexity. An informal assessment may answer questions about your personality, a clinical issue, or mental health functioning. A formal assessment often stems from questions raised by third parties, such as physicians, employers, teachers, lawyers, or insurers. Formal assessment typically involves a written report that may provide a clinical diagnosis and discussion of impairment, disability, prognosis, treatment, and recommendations.
