At True North Psychological Services our mission is to provide a safe and supportive environment for clients, clinicians, and staff. We are excited to announce that we have openings in our Halifax, Dartmouth and Bridgewater locations for psychologists and social workers.
We work closely with governmental agencies, organizations who assist veterans, military personnel, first responders and many other referral sources. However, our referrals are not limited to trauma-related challenges as we also work with adults, couples, families, and children facing a wide range of mental health and personal challenges. We regularly have a surplus of referrals and are eager to provide services to all in a timely fashion.
The True North group of companies is dedicated to helping all those who suffer from mental health issues. We practice a holistic approach to mental health. How we think, feel and behave is the result of complex interactions between our biological, psychological, social, and environmental factors. The therapeutic approaches our team uses take each of these factors into account.
