You don’t have to manage your child’s emotional, behavioural, or learning difficulties on your own.

Sometimes children, teens, and young adults face challenges that they can’t cope with on their own or even with the help of their family. 

Fortunately, support and guidance from trained professionals can help you and your child work through emotional, behavioral, or learning difficulties — so they can thrive.

We Believe in a Supportive Approach at North Shore Psychological Services

We believe in a supportive, personalized assessment and therapeutic approach.

Everyone is unique and has their own set of strengths and challenges.

Therefore, we tailor our sessions, assessments, and treatment plans to address the challenges unique to you and your child.

Our highly-trained team of experts use various evidence-based approaches, techniques, and strategies to personalize the assessment, therapy, and treatment to your child’s specific situation.

We create a safe, engaging, and nonjudgmental space so your child or teenager can freely share their thoughts, feelings, concerns, and behaviours. We work at your child’s pace so they feel supported throughout the therapy or assessment process.

About Our Team

Our multidisciplinary team includes Psychologists, Psychometrists, and Speech and Language Pathologists.

We provide assessment and treatment to support your child’s behavior, growth, and development, as well as services to help your family flourish.

We collaborate with clients, families, educators, and other professionals to help understand your child’s strengths and challenges and facilitate a coordinated plan for your child’s success.
