Hello everyone,

Given the COVID-19 crisis, the Registered Psychologists at Dr. Hubley Carruthers & Associates have chosen to work in consort with our government and public health leaders to “flatten the curve” and help to protect the most vulnerable in our community. We continue to follow all protocols that the Nova Scotia government has in place for the safety of our practice and clients.

Beginning April 27th, our offices will remain OPEN, however, we will be conducting all sessions virtually (via ZOOM / video), until it is safe to meet in person again. If it is impossible for you to attend your sessions virtually, please contact our office and let us know. We would be happy to reschedule your appointment to a later date. A video link will be sent to you prior to your appointment.

If you are new to our Practice or looking for more information, please contact us by phone at 902-407-1234 or by email at

Kind regards,

Dr. Kathy Hubley Carruthers
