Heather Woltman provides psychological services (i.e., assessment and treatment) to children, adolescents, and families in English, under the supervision of Dr. Julie Desjardins, C. Psych. and Dr. Caroline Sullivan, C.Psych. Heather has a special interest in working with individuals and families experiencing difficulties with anxiety, depression, self-confidence, disruptive behaviours, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, and peer/family relationships.
