Individual Psychotherapy / Play Therapy 

 

Individual treatment is delivered by our registered psychologists or registered psychotherapists to help the child/youth address personal issues within a safe and supportive therapeutic relationship. The particular approaches to treatment depend on the age and needs of the child/youth as well as the nature of the presenting issue(s). Some examples of individual evidenced-based treatment approaches that are used include cognitive-behaviour therapy (CBT), play therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), behavior therapy and exposure response prevention therapy (ERP).

Family Therapy

 

Family therapy sessions take place with our registered psychologists or registered psychotherapists who invite parents, siblings, grandparents and/or other family members to participate in treatment with or without the child’s/youth’s presence. Family therapy sessions focus on educating family members, improving communication, disrupting destructive relationship patterns and building positive connections to increase the supportive capacity of the child’s/youth’s family system.

Speech and Language Therapy 

 

Speech and language therapy sessions are led by our speech-language pathologists who use games and other engaging activities to build a rapport with the child and work on speech and language related goals such as improving articulation, fluency, comprehension and other verbal and/or non-verbal communication skills. Parents participate in speech and language therapy by helping their child practice the skills learned in treatment sessions at home.

Occupational Therapy

 

Occupational therapy sessions are delivered by our occupational therapists who engage the child by using a variety of play-based techniques to increase the child’s ability to function more confidently and independently. OTs help the child work towards accomplishing developmental goals such as improving fine and/or gross motor skills, balance, coordination, body awareness, visual-spatial awareness, sensory processing and organization skills. Parents participate in occupational therapy by helping their child practice the skills learned in treatment sessions at home.

Naturopathy 

Naturopathic medicine is a unique discipline of clinical sciences that merges the modern medical diagnostic tools with evidence-based holistic treatments. A naturopath helps to establish the conditions for health by addressing the fundamental cause of illness, rather than just addressing the symptoms that are present. Clinical nutrition and the therapeutic use of foods is a cornerstone of naturopathic medicine and can help to identify many food intolerances, deficiencies, dietary imbalances or nutritional excess, which are associated with many medical conditions in an effort to improve or even reverse these conditions.  

Initial Comprehensive Evaluations are 90min in length and cost $255 - $450 depending on the seniority of the psychotherapist and psychologist. 

Therapy Sessions (at-home or virtual) are 60min in length and cost is $170 - $300 depending on the seniority of the psychotherapist and psychologist.
