Your outer journey
may contain a million steps;
Your inner journey has only one:
the step you are taking
~ Eckhart Tolle ~
The symbol of the spiral is prolific in ancient times, representing the path leading from your outer experience to your inner core. We believe this is representative of the therapeutic journey we will embark on together at Core.
Specializing in ...
Therapy is a personal experience, and at Core we recognize that each person's journey will be unique. Working with either a psychologist or a social worker, we aim to develop a treatment plan that will most effectively help you meet your therapeutic goals. We are skilled in several evidence-based treatments for adults, including Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) for trauma, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), amongst others.
At Core we offer couples therapy designed to explore your relationship, improve communication skills, and identify and work with core issues. Whether you are highly motivated to change, or you are skeptical about the benefit of couples therapy, we aim to make both parties feel comfortable so that we can identify goals and develop a treatment plan that meets both of your needs.
Family therapy is designed to explore your family dynamics, improve communication skills, and identify and work with core issues. Whether you are highly motivated to change, or you are ambivalent about coming to family therapy, we aim to make all family members feel comfortable so that we can identify goals and develop a treatment plan that meets the needs of the family.
Assessment and Treatment
Our team includes both a forensic psychologist and a social worker to provide quality forensic assessment and treatment services. We provide professional opinions on the mental state and functionality of justice-involved adults, and take the stand as expert witnesses when required.
At Core, we offer comprehensive diagnostic assessment to meet your needs. Using a combination of empirically-validated psychological tools/measures and in-depth clinical interview, we can help you better understand your psychological profile. If requested, a report will be provided that includes a holistic, developmental approach to understanding any struggles you are currently experiencing.
At Core, we are excited to provide the option of online therapy. Using a safe and secure web-based program called OnCall Health, we can provide confidential therapy sessions right from the comfort of your own home. The audio-video allows you to see your therapist as if you were in the office.
