Our multidisciplinary team of Psychologists, Psychotherapists and a Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist has decades of expertise and experience to help you THRIVE
Academic and professional qualifications are just part of the bigger picture – warmth and empathy are just as important, if not more so. So when we add people to our team, they have to be a good fit for us – and for you. Clinicians and staff at the Roncesvalles Psychology Clinic all have friendly, engaging, reassuring personalities that create comfort and make them easy to talk to.
These are accomplished professionals who have written books and academic articles, taught at universities, and presented at international conferences on topics ranging from empathic accuracy in marital satisfaction, to helping teens deal with difficult emotions and behaviours, to changing emotion using emotion.
In all these interests and specialties there is one common thread: helping people create happier lives and more satisfying relationships.
Integrated, professional care
Our integrated model is what makes RPC different from most Toronto clinics. A unique blend of clinicians – psychologists, psychiatrists, and psychotherapists who specialize in helping couples, families and children – all work together under one roof to address your needs in a way that makes the most sense for you and your family.
Psychologists are doctors that have trained for 10+ years to assess, diagnose, and treat a wide range of mental health concerns. Psychologists are at the core of our practice because they are experts in understanding both human behaviour and people’s internal worlds.
Child Psychologists treat mental health issues in children and teens. They take a holistic view of a child’s life, tailoring therapies to accommodate family, school, and social factors, so that each child feels understood and validated.
Psychotherapists are licensed professionals who specialize in the practice of psychotherapy (‘talk-therapy’) to promote well-being and address a wide range of concerns such as specific mental health challenges, relationship strain, or life stress. Psychotherapists come from diverse training programs, typically with a minimum of four years of specialized training.
Child Psychiatrists are medical doctors with five additional years of training in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of children and adolescents using both medication and therapy.
Social Workers help individuals, couples, families, and groups to develop their own skills and abilities to resolve problems. What this looks like in practice is developing inner resources such as tools to manage emotions or relationship patterns.
