What is the difference between a psychological associate and a psychologist?
Psychologists and psychological associates share the same scope of practice in Ontario. They are both able to assess, diagnose, and treat psychological disorders. The main difference is that a psychologist has completed both Masters and PhD degrees, and a psychological associate has competed a Masters degree and four years of clinical experience. They have both completed the same final year of supervised practice and passed the three entrance examinations required by the College of Psychologists of Ontario.
My workplace would like to offer some mental health/wellness trainings. Do you offer these services?
Yes! I offer workshops, trainings, and courses tailored to the needs of your place of work. I offer mindfulness, self-compassion, cognitive-behavioural, and resilience-based approaches to reducing the effects of workplace stress and burnout. Please contact me for more details.
Are there funding options for your groups for individuals with Indigenous Status?
You are eligible for funding for my groups if you have Indigenous Status. I am a registered provider with Health Canada's Non-Insured Health Benefits (NIHB) and Indian Residential Schools Resolution Health Support Programs. Please contact me for more details.
Can I access your groups/trainings if I reside outside of Ontario?
