When anxiety, hurt, sadness, confusion, frustration, or loneliness start to feel overwhelming, it might be time to seek professional help. Therapy provides a safe and confidential space to explore your inner world. It supports healing and growth so that you feel less 'stuck' and more able to move freely through life.
Sometimes school can be a struggle despite hard work and attempts to do well. Educational testing (also called psycho-educational testing) is a way to understand the mental processes underlying educational performance. It can help to clarify whether a student has a learning disability, processing problem, or other condition that affects learning.
Many couples experience communication difficulties, conflict, silences, distance. You may feel misunderstood, unheard, or unloved. You may sense a lack of connection between you and your partner. Couples therapy can help you to reconnect, to communicate better, to be more intimate, and to feel optimistic about your future together.
Sometimes it’s hard to differentiate between behaviors that reflect ADHD and those that are just a normal part of life or growing up. As we get older, it becomes even harder to diagnose ADHD because so many other factors may be causing problems with attention or impulsivity. But getting an accurate diagnosis is critical because effective treatment depends on it….treatments that can change your life.
A psychological assessment can help you understand your overall intellectual functioning, your cognitive strengths and weaknesses, your learning style or profile, and any emotional or behavioral issues that interfere with school, work, or relationships. It can also help you understand why different treatments have had little or no success.
Hello, I’m Dr. Colin Baptie. I help individuals and couples to lead more rewarding and fulfilling lives. I also assess teens and adults with learning or attention difficulties so that they get the help they need. In both areas of my practice, I provide a supportive and empathic space where people feel comfortable to explore their concerns and figure out a path to improved health, better relationships, and/or academic success.
