Therapists found at The Compass Rose Health and Wellness Centre:

Dr. Mike Buckley – PhD in Psychology, Registered Clinical Therapist (RCT)

I am a specialist trained and experienced in addictions. Therefore, many people who seek me out have a clear connection to addiction themselves, or in a loved one. They often come from a family where addiction has had an impact on their ability to live a full and rich life as an adult.

Other people, whether they have an addiction or not, come for specific treatment of trauma, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD), problems with disassociation, depression, anxiety, or other symptoms that they may not be able to describe in diagnostic language. What they have in common is the pain that this creates in their life.
