Victims of motor vehicle accidents may qualify for services from their auto insurer. Individuals with WSIB claims are also able to have their fees covered.

Lara Sigurdson, M.A., C. Psych. Assoc.

Lara Slaraigurdson is a professional psychotherapist working with adolescents and adults. She provides individual therapy and assessment.

Lara’s practical work has evolved from employment in the social services sector working with families in crisis, to educational environments, to providing individual psychotherapy for adolescents and adults. She incorporates components from a range of models of psychotherapy. A psychodynamic approach is used for treatment of more pervasive long-standing challenges. When the focus is on resolving specific symptoms or problem areas, cognitive-behavioral modalities are typically more effective.

Lara also offers a range of psychological consultation and psychological assessment services. These include vocational, cognitive, psychological and psychoeducational assessments.
