If your child or adolescent is dealing with anxiety, depression/sadness, anger, self-esteem issues, adjustment to post secondary education, grief/loss, or has witnessed something traumatic, I offer a variety of cognitive and play based interventions tailored to each individual.
I am an Associate at Belfon Psychological and a Registered Psychologist with a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Guelph. I provide evidence-based practices, (e.g. CBT) , to support children and adolescents ages 4 to 20 years old. I support youth struggling with sadness, anxiety, obsessive/compulsive behaviours, personality, gender/LGBTQ+ identity, relationship problems and social development. At Belfon Psychological we believe in viewing problems from a developmental lens. I believe in the importance of working together with families, and I regularly involve caregivers in treatment and assessment when possible.

Teen Counsellors
Adolescence can be a time of both disorientation and discovery. The transitional period can raise questions of independence and identity; as adolescents cultivate their sense of self, they may face difficult choices about academics, friendship, sexuality, gender identity, drugs, and alcohol.

Most teens have a relatively egocentric perspective on life; a state of mind that usually abates with age. They often focus on themselves and believe that everyone else—from a best friend to a distant crush—is focused on them too. They may grapple with insecurities and feelings of being judged. Relationships with family members often take a backseat to peer groups, romantic interests, and appearance, which teens perceive as increasingly important during this time.

The transition can naturally lead to anxiety about physical development, evolving relationships with others, and one's place in the larger world. Mild anxiety and other challenges are typical, but serious mental health conditions also emerge during adolescence. Finding a teen therapist in Ajax and addressing a disorder early on can help ensure the best possible outcome.
