Who are we?

Belfon Psychological Services aims to improve the mental health functioning of clients through the provision of evidence based practices in clinical psychology. We are committed to enhancing the wellbeing of children in their homes, schools, and communities.

Dr. Belfon received his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Guelph, and is a registered with the College of Psychologists of Ontario. In addition to his private practice, Dr. Belfon is a staff psychologist at Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences. Dr. Belfon has previously worked at Kinark Child and Family Services, Syl Apps Youth Centre, the Toronto District School Board, Hamilton Health Sciences, and several private clinics in the greater Toronto area.

What services do we provide?

Psychological Assessment:

We provide comprehensive psychological assessments that address social, emotional, behavioral, cognitive, and academic functioning. This service aids children and adolescents, as well as their caregivers and schools, in better understanding their mental health and learning needs. When appropriate, diagnostic opinions and individualized recommendations for intervention are provided.

Psychological Consultation:

We offer targeted mental health evaluations, providing families with immediate feedback regarding further diagnostic assessment and/or treatment direction. Consultative services are also offered to families seeking counsel or education regarding their child’s mental health. Consultations do not include an assessment of learning/academic needs.

Intervention:

We provide individual, family, and group psychotherapy. We use the core elements of a range of evidenced based practice to help meet the specific needs of children and adolescents (e.g., Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy).

Who do we work with?

We work with children aged 6-18, who are having difficulties with mood, anxiety, disruptive behavior, obsessive/compulsive behaviors, social development, and learning. We believe in the importance of working together with families, and we regularly involve caregivers in treatment and assessment when it is possible to do so.
