Building Emotional Health and Resilience
Life stress is unpredictable and can occur at any time.
We can’t control when bad things happen – but we can learn helpful ways of responding so that we are not negatively impacted in the years to come.
McKinnon Psychology has a particular focus on high-quality evidence-based treatments for anxiety, traumatic stress and adjustment following stressful life experiences.
We believe that even after the most difficult of circumstances there is the potential for growth and development.
Our team can help you learn tools to build resilience and take your life in a new direction.
Our clinicians strive to ensure that your therapeutic journey is a supportive and confidence-building experience. We want you to experience long-lasting improvements from the therapeutic process.
