Threshold Psychology is a private practice which focuses on providing services to children, teens, and young adults including psycho-educational assessments, assessments for Autism and ADHD, and behavioural assessments. Threshold Psychology also provides counselling for common issues such as stress, anxiety, self-regulation, and relationships. We use evidence-based interventions including cognitive-behavioural therapy and mindfulness in our work with children and families. We consult with other organizations including the school system to better meet the needs of students.
