OUR SERVICES

As a team, we offer the following psychological services:

Early Intervention

Initial Consultations

It is often necessary to meet with caregivers and their child/youth for an initial appointment to gain a better understanding of their concerns and needs. Based on this consultation meeting, we can then decide, together, if our services are well suited for your expectations and needs. If we cannot provide the kind of support that you need, we will suggest alternatives and options within your community.

Cost: $140.00 - $180/hr depending on the specific training and experience of the clinician involved.

Comprehensive Assessments

Psychoeducational Assessments 

If you have concerns about your child’s learning and academic progress, we can complete a comprehensive learning assessment (often termed ‘psychoeducational assessment’) in order to better understand your child’s unique learning profile. This assessment will involve at least two visits to complete a variety of measures that evaluate intelligence, memory, processing skills, attention, memory and academic skills. The information from this assessment will then be summarized in terms of educational recommendations.

  • Learning Disabilities
  • Developmental Delays
  • Giftedness
  • AD/HD

 

Cost: $2000.00 (including 2 copies of formal report).

School Consultations

School Consultations

Based on our experience within school boards, we are very familiar with educational options and plans. While it is not our role to consult directly on school board processes such as Identification, Placement and Review Committee (IPRC) or Individual Educational Plan (IEP), we can offer advice and direction to parents on how best to work with these supports.  Typically, we will have conducted a psychoeducational assessment first in order to be more familiar with your specific child’s needs.

Cost: $180/hour plus any travel time if attendance at school meetings is required.

Comprehensive Assessments

Individual Therapy

We consider your child or youth as our ‘primary client’. However, we believe in the necessity and value of the family and community in terms of supporting your young person. Therefore, while we will meet individually with your child, we will also strive to communicate with relevant caregivers as much as possible to ensure support and shared understanding. We respect the privacy needs of a young person’s time in therapy, but will also work together to keep open and honest communication with relevant family members, as needed.

Cost: $140.00-$180.00/hr (depending on experience and training of specific clinician)

 

Comprehensive Assessments

Family Therapy

Some of our clinical staff also have additional training in family therapy. Family therapy is different from individual therapy, in that the family, as a unit, is considered the ‘primary client’ and the role of therapy is to meet collectively with all relevant family members to promote more positive communication and understanding. Cost: 140.00-180.00/hr (depending on the specific training and experience of the clinician involved)

Family Counseling Rate: $140-$180/hr (depending on experience and training of specific clinician)

Play Therapy

Play Therapy

Our trained play therapist works with young people to explore their feelings and thoughts through a variety of developmentally appropriate, play based modalities. Children are not often able to express their feelings and fears through language. Non-directive play provides a foundation for them to explore and process difficult experiences and emotions, in a safe and secure manner. In your initial discussion with your clinician, it may be determined that play therapy is the more appropriate approach for your young person. Our play therapist receives clinical supervision and consultation with a registered psychologist.

Play Therapy (1 hour sessions): $120.00/hr.
