Amanda Dyson, M.A.
Supporting the well-being of children and families is my passion as a Clinician. I focus on strengthening the parent-child relationship so that children, teens and parents can thrive.
My clients come to therapy with various concerns – emotional, in their relationships or with behaviours that are getting in the way. When families are struggling, I offer hope and empathy- not judgement.
My style is warm and genuine which helps my clients feel more at ease in sharing their experiences with me. Every client and family has a unique history so I avoid a ‘one size fits all’ approach to treatment. Instead, I draw on my extensive training in order to tailor therapy to meet my clients’ specific needs.
