Dr. Brent Conrad
I am a Clinical Psychologist registered with The Nova Scotia Board of Examiners in Psychology and a member of The Association of Psychologists of Nova Scotia.
I completed my undergraduate degree in psychology at Dalhousie University (just up the street from Green Leaf Psychological), my Masters and PhD. degrees in clinical psychology at Simon Fraser University in British Columbia, and my Doctoral Internship at The University of Manitoba.
During my career (so far) I have worked in hospitals, forensic settings, psychiatric institutions, community services, universities, counselling centres, private clinics, and of course, as the owner of Green Leaf Psychological Services in Halifax.
I am comfortable offering therapy for a wide range of personal difficulties and have particular interests in helping clients overcome issues related to depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, relationship difficulties, video game addiction, anger, shyness and social anxiety, abusive relationships, assertiveness, grief, breakups and divorce, panic attacks, and perfectionism. For more information on what therapy is actually like, please read about my approach to therapy, and my thoughts on what makes a good psychologist at my professional website Halifax Psychologist.
I provide assessments for Learning Disorders, Child ADHD, Adult ADHD, Dyslexia, IQ, Giftedness, and Academic issues. I take great pride in every assessment I offer, do everything possible to make sure that it is a relaxed and enjoyable experience (especially for child assessments), and will personally sit down to discuss the results and answer all questions when the final report is complete.
Assessments can be a significant investment of your time and energy. But, they can also answer questions that you have wondered about for many years - and can provide direction and guidance to significantly improve the quality of your life (or the life of your child). This is a responsibility I take very seriously and my goal is to always exceed your expectations for an assessment.
Questions? Please send me an email - I personally respond to every inquiry I get, regardless of whether you are a current client or not.
