Our Team of Halifax Psychologists and Counsellors
Dr. Brent Conrad, Clinical Psychologist
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.
Caroline Danis, M.Ed.
Registered Counselling Therapist - Candidate
I am a Registered Counselling Therapist Candidate registered with the Nova Scotia College of Counselling Therapists. I am also a Canadian Certified Counsellor. I completed my Honors Degree in Psychology and my Master’s Degree in Educational Counselling at the University of Ottawa.
I spent the first years of my career working in Community Centres in Ottawa where I provided counselling to children, youth and adults. Since moving to Halifax, I have been working as a therapist in a University setting.
I am very client centered in my approach to counselling. I strongly believe in empowering clients and therefore work collaboratively with my clients to determine appropriate counselling goals and treatment plans.
I have been trained in a number of therapeutic models and use various components of these models in my work with clients. Specifically I utilize components of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy and Solution Focused Therapy. I have experience working with a diverse population on various issues such as anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, relationship issues, family issues and perfectionism.
I am comfortable offering counselling both in English and in French.
