Our Approach:

In our initial session we spend time getting to know client and family by completing a medical and biological, psychological, and social history as a part of a comprehensive assessment. Based on this initial assessment, treatment recommendations will be made and the necessity for medication and/or psychotherapy will be discussed. Services are provided in English, Hindi and Punjabi. Treatment recommendations will be based on such factors as the child/youth's current problems, family history, level of development, ability to cooperate with treatment, and evidence- based interventions which are most likely to help with the client's presenting concerns.

What to expect in a first session:
  • Understanding of family concerns and priorities for the initial visit
  • Obtaining a detailed family/social history
  • Identifying the child's and family's strengths
  • Functional Assessment of the child and family
  • Review of school and child care reports
  • Completion of appropriate validated screening tools

Medication is often required in the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in order to treat the core symptoms of impulsivity, hyperactivity, and inattention. Medication has been proven useful in the treatment of anxiety, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and depression. Dr. B. Gill will work closely with patients and parents/caregivers, carefully considering and outweighing the risks versus benefits when making medication recommendations. Other recommendations may also be made to school staff to ease some of the daily challenges of a child who has different learning needs and behavioural challenges.


Psychotherapy is often used with other evidence based treatments. Some of these include medication management, behaviour management, or even working with school staff. We can assist with giving recommendations to obtain appropriate services in school to ease some of the daily challenges of a child who learns differently from other children. Goals for therapy may be specific (change in behaviour, improved relations with friends/family) or more general (coping and combating feelings of depression and anxiety).


Individual and Family Therapy:

Varying modalities including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Play/Art Therapy, Narrative Therapy are incorporated to create an individualized approach.


Group Therapy:

Groups are available for anxiety, depression; and social skills/self-esteem to children and adolescents. Parenting groups are available for parents/caregivers of children and adolescents.
