Psycho-educational, Giftedness & ADHD/ADD Assessments for children & youth
ADHD/ADD Assessments for adults
Alexa Kane works in the Milton clinic, as well as providing virtual sessions. She offers comprehensive psycho-educational, giftedness and ADHD/ADD assessments for children, teens and adults.
With young children, Dr. Kane uses play-based therapy if traditional talk therapy isn’t possible or appropriate. Dr. Kane helps parents manage the inevitable difficulties that come with raising children in today’s world, including helping them develop new ways to interact with their children to address emotional and behavioural difficulties.
Dr. Kane adopts a client-centered approach to her work with all clients, with an emphasis on understanding the environmental and developmental context that has led each person to where they are. She believes that therapy is not a “one-size-fits- all” solution, and that each individual’s unique strengths and resources will determine the appropriate treatment approach. She emphasizes the importance of trust and comfort in the therapeutic relationship, using both to help promote client growth. In her work, Dr. Kane integrates a variety of therapeutic approaches, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and Child-Centered Play Therapy.
Dr. Kane received her Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from the University of Guelph. Her recent professional experiences include positions at the Reach Out Centre for Kids (ROCK), Lutherwood Mental Health Services, and in private practice.
