Winter is here!

Winter has reached us and Dr. Hubley Carruthers and Associates hope that you are staying warm!

Since our conception in the fall of 2011, we have had a very busy 7 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.

I wish to thank Adam Kayfitz, Angelina MacLellan, Erica Lundberg, Joanna Hessen Kayfitz and Joanne Gillespie 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 our Office Manager, Alisia Curire, for her uncompromising work ethic and guidance.

Warm regards,

Kathy Signature
