Toronto Psychiatry Services in the Heart of North York

Our Approach To Psychiatry

Our Mental Health Nurse Practitioner assesses adults ages 18-60 for mood and anxiety disorders, and other coexisting conditions that may be occurring. Consultations are done in our office or through a secure virtual platform.  A referral is not required to see our Mental Health Nurse Practitioner.

Each assessment includes:

    1. The completion of standardized Rating Scales and questionnaires. These are completed prior to your Assessment. They allow you to thoroughly document the nature of your symptoms, challenges as well as strengths. Using a standardized questionnaire provides important, statistically relevant information, which is used to help with diagnosis, and also to guide our Nurse Practitioner for the clinical interview. This helps you to have more confidence in the accuracy of your diagnosis.
    2. The initial clinical interview lasts 45 minutes.  This is when you will have time to explain your concerns, symptoms, challenges, and discuss opportunities. 
    3. The Nurse Practitioner will determine if further lab work needs to be ordered as well.
    4. A treatment plan will be developed and the Nurse Practitioner will continue to monitor your care.
    5. Clients must be willing to agree to only have one psychotropic medication providers to be under her care.

Important notice:

We do not provide capacity assessments, CAS parental capacity assessments, forensic assessments or ODSP disability determining assessments.
