Welcome to our child and family psychology centre in Toronto!
Infants and Preschoolers
Our child psychologists provide consultation, assessment and treatment for concerns that parents have about their preschooler, including development, socialization, sleep, attachment, behaviour, and early learning.
School-aged kids may experience learning problems, social skills difficulties, bullying, or anxiety. We are a team of child psychologists, psychiatrists, and clinical social workers providing evidence-based assessment and therapy to support kids and families.
We provide assessment and treatment difficulties that young adults experience. These include mood and anxiety, challenges with the transition to post-secondary studies, and relationship difficulties.
Family therapy can help you deal with conflicts, increase respect and cooperation, and provide a safe place to talk about difficult topics.
Checkout Dr. Mirisse’s Book
This book introduces emotion focused family therapy (EFFT) as an evidence-based intervention for children through the integration of parent trauma treatment and emotion-focused techniques. A team of expert authors, including the founders of EFT and EFFT, contribute to the chapters, in which recent findings from longitudinal clinical trials are woven into a rich and deeply presented overview of using EFFT practically with clients. This immensely practical book also provides illustrative case studies, intervention strategies, and do’s and don’ts at the end of each chapter.
