Happy New Year
Dr. Hubley Carruthers and Associates hope that you are enjoying a safe and happy new year.
Since our conception in the fall of 2011, we have had a very busy 6 1/2 years in operation, and we have our lovely clients and loyal referral sources to thank! We continue to welcome new clients to the Practice and trust you will find us warm, welcoming and inviting.
Dr. Kathy Hubley Carruthers and her five capable Associates, Dr. Adam Kayfitz, Dr. Joanne Gillespie, Dr. Joanna Hessen Kayfitz, Erica Lundberg, M.A., and Angelina MacLellan, M.A., are proud to offer a broad range of empirically supported therapy services including cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, emotion-focused, interpersonal, narrative and mindfulness based therapies.
At Dr. Hubley Carruthers and Associates, we specialize in psychological counselling and therapy. We see children, adolescents, adults, couples and families in a private and safe therapeutic environment. Mediation services (i.e., co-parenting agreements); job pre-selection services; trauma, mood and anxiety assessments; forensic services; and psychological screeners are also available.
Since the inception of the practice in the fall of 2011, we have enjoyed the opportunity to build on our relationship with a number of third party organizations including Doctors of Nova Scotia Professionals’ Support Program, Medavie Blue Cross, RCMP, Veteran’s Affairs, Victim Services, First Nations- Non-Insured Health Benefits, Team Work Cooperative and the Work Bridge, Department of National Defense, and Public Service Commission of Canada, just to name a few. We look forward to an ongoing positive relationship with these organizations. In an ongoing effort to support our clientele, we also offer some direct billing opportunities with some insurance companies and organizational institutions. Please inquire at the front desk regarding direct billing opportunities.
As of June of 2017, we were thrilled to welcome Angelina MacLellan, M.A., to our team. Ms. MacLellan received her Bachelor of Arts, First Class Honours with a Special Concentration in Forensic Psychology, from St. Francis Xavier University in 2015 and her Masters in Arts in Counselling Psychology from the University of Western Ontario in 2017.
Ms. MacLellan takes a collaborative approach to therapy and works with children, adolescents, and adults. Ms. MacLellan has formal training and experience facilitating treatment for individuals experiencing anxiety/depression and mood issues, behavioural problems, transitional/adjustment issues (e.g., family separation, educational changes), difficulties managing emotions, and relationship issues. Ms. MacLellan has also provided services and can assist with individuals who experience difficulties with self-esteem, substance use, anger management, and those coping with stress (work/school), grief, and trauma.
Ms. MacLellan offers evidence-based approaches with a focus on Cognitive Behavioural (CBT), Behavioural, Motivational, and Mindfulness-based orientations, depending on the client’s presenting issue and goals. Ms. MacLellan also will be available in June to conduct mental health screeners and assessments.
In addition to Angelina MacLellan, I also wish to thank Adam Kayfitz, Joanne Gillespie, Erica Lundberg and Joanna Hessen-Kayfitz for being valuable members of our Psychological Services team! As the Practice Leader, I consider myself blessed to be surrounded by such hard working, capable clinicians.
Special thanks to Carlye Seamone and Alisia Currie, our Office Managers, for their uncompromising work ethic and guidance.
