We are two psychologists who started off in the public health system, then spent the past 9 and 10 years working alongside some of the finest clinicians in Halifax, at a thriving downtown practice. In November 2018 we opened our own practice in the heart of beautiful Bedford, NS. Our vision is to bring top-notch psychological services to our clients and to provide a relaxing oasis in the bustle of your life. Between ourselves and our associates, we offer a range of psychological services for children, adolescents, adults, and couples.
