The Psychology Couch team

At The Couch, it is our unending quest to deliver a calibre of service that leaves a profound and enduring impact on all our clients. From the moment you step into our practice to the moment you leave, we strive to provide you with a therapeutic environment that mirrors your need for privacy, serenity and healing, as well an experience that is unique, supportive and a distinguished reflection of your desire for change and growth. To accomplish such a ceaseless task requires dedication, a powerful education and a core understanding of our practice's values and beliefs. Nothing is more integral to this process than the team of professionals that are tasked with your care.

From our administrative staff to our psychologists and psychiatrists, it is important that you, as our client, know who we are, what we stand for and the level to which we will work to ensure you receive the best service we are capable of. To these ends, it is our pleasure to introduce you to 'The Team', our group of talented and compassionate professionals who will be guiding you along your journey on The Couch.
