I specialize in ADHD, autism, self esteem, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, codependency, family conflict, eating disorders, pregnancy, prenatal, postpartum, parenting, education and learning disabilities, school issues, women's issues, LGBTQ+, and more.
Sometimes our experiences can leave us feeling anxious, overwhelmed, and dysregulated. These emotions can impact our relationships with others and our relationships with ourselves. I encourage therapeutic growth by nurturing the inner child, making peace with the inner critic, and reconnecting clients with their authentic sense of self. I value the healing impact of our parts being seen, heard, validated, and accepted. I work with individuals, couples, parents, and youth. I use Internal Family Systems (IFS), Person-Centered, Self-Compassion, Existential, Relational, Narrative, Strength-based, Attachment-based, and Polyvagal Theory.

Being neurodivergent in a neurotypical world comes with challenges. Traditional therapy is not based on an understanding of your neurotype or the neurotype of your loved one. You may want to understand your diagnosis and how your brain works, learn practical skills to navigate your life, explore intersections with sex and gender, as well as accessing emotional and psychologcial support. Wendy McGuire, Clinic Director, is at the forefront of transforming services for the neurodivergent population through her interdisciplinary virtual clinical practice, supervision, and training (CAMH, York University, OASW Learning Centre, etc).

How effective is treatment for learning disabilities?

When initiated early and tailored to a child’s specific needs, learning disability treatment can be quite effective at helping a child cope with their disability, though its exact efficacy may depend on the severity of symptoms and whether comorbid disorders exist. Less is known about treatment initiated in adulthood, but it is certainly possible that an adult with a learning disability will see some improvement—or at the very least, identify workarounds and accommodations that could make symptoms less burdensome in day-to-day life.

When should someone seek treatment for learning disabilities?

It’s best to seek treatment as early as possible. Because learning disabilities often go unnoticed until a child starts school, or even until they’re a few years along, regular check-ins with teachers and doctors can help parents determine whether children are meeting milestones and keeping up with peers or whether an evaluation for learning disabilities may be warranted. And although earlier is always better, it’s never too late to be evaluated for learning disabilities and to seek treatment.

What happens if learning disabilities are left untreated?

Undiagnosed and untreated learning disabilities can be a source of significant frustration and shame for a child, who may feel that their challenges stem from a lack of intelligence or willpower. Such feelings can trigger low self-esteem, depression, or anxiety, which may push a child toward risky behaviors, including substance use. In adulthood, untreated learning disabilities can interfere with career success, and lingering feelings of self-doubt and shame can negatively affect someone’s mental health.

Are there medications for learning disabilities?

Currently, there are no medications designed to treat specific learning disabilities such as dysgraphia or dyscalculia. However, someone with a learning disability may be prescribed medication for a comorbid condition, such as anxiety, depression, or ADHD, which may have positive downstream effects on their learning disability; for example, a child with both ADHD and dyslexia may find that they’re better able to focus on their reading exercises after being prescribed a stimulant medication.
