LESLIE BLOCK, M.ED., R.PSYCH
For over 35 years, I have had the privilege of working with people experiencing a variety of emotional and mental health difficulties. Problems are wide-ranging such as depression, anxiety, grief, anger, trauma-related, relational, substance abuse, and other types of difficulties. The resultant pain and disruption of attachments, necessitates a collaborative approach as we seek to find a better way of living. The various approaches utilized, have scientific backing, including cognitive behavioural, EMDR, ISTDP. If you would like to contact me we can discuss possible wellness plans best suited for you.
