About Us

We are comprised of a group of professionals from a variety of backgrounds and experiences.

Dr. Daliah Chapnik (left) & Dr. Caryn Moulton (right)

From regional school boards and hospitals to private practices and independent psychological service providers, our team is prepared with an array of tools to help you and your family with your mental health concerns. We are also committed to helping the professional development of psychology students. As such, we act as supervisors for graduate students and early career psychologists. They gain valuable experience and hands-on knowledge in the diverse field of psychology.

For your assessment or treatment, you will see either a registered psychologist or one of our experienced clinicians under the supervision of one of the psychologists. All of our practitioners work under the obligations and responsibilities set out by the College of Psychologists of Ontario (www.cpo.on.ca). This ensures that you receive the best possible service from your clinician. If you have any questions about these responsibilities, please see the College of Psychologists of Ontario website or call our office.
