Borovay Psychological Services is committed to enhancing the wellbeing of children, adolescents, families, and adults by addressing emotional, behavioural, and educational needs. The Center provides a safe and nurturing setting for families to seek guidance, support and specialized services to assist in their child's cognitive, social-emotional, and academic development. We offer comprehensive psychological and psycho-educational assessment and treatment to best meet each family's evolving needs.
Our assessments focus on identifying the underlying challenges that contribute to the presenting concerns. Our approach to testing provides insight into an individual’s learning strengths and weaknesses, cognitive functioning, information processing abilities, as well as psycho-social development. We pride ourselves on having a fast turn around from the initial intake session through to an individual receiving their assessment report. Our assessments include practical recommendations that can be implemented directly into an individual’s academic or work environment. We place an emphasis on helping individuals understand their profiles and we offer support in assisting families with a plan of action to ensure their child is set up for future success. We have an on-site educator who specializes in working with children with learning disabilities who offers tutorial and educational support to provide a seamless transition from assessment to intervention.
Our team specializes in high-quality care both in terms of diagnostic assessment and treatment. We understand how stressful it can be when a family member is struggling, especially when it is a child or adolescent. We also know that parenting children through their developmental stages can be challenging. It is during these times that having the right supports in place can be beneficial. We work to assist parents through the parenting journey while also providing support to children as they navigate the obstacles that arise as they mature and develop.
We offer a nurturing space where individuals can address the obstacles present within their lives, gain perspective, develop strategies to strengthen their relationships, improve communication, and increase their capacity to care for themselves and their loved ones.
RESPONSE TO COVID-19
We are monitoring COVID-19 and its development. Serving our families remains a priority and protecting the health of our clients and our clinicians is of the utmost importance. During calls for social distancing and isolation, we still need connection.
We will continue to see clients for therapy via telephone or videoconferencing as we continue to provide the best services we can. As per our office policy during this time, there are no charges for missed/cancelled appointments due to illness.
Assessments are continuing to be offered in-person following healthcare guidelines, including plexiglass screens, PPE, and COVID screening before entering the office. A complete list of precautions being taken will be provided from your service provider after an assessment has been scheduled.
We understand that this situation may be causing concern to you and your loved ones. Please follow the advice of reputable authorities such as the World Health Organization and the Public Health Agency of Canada.
