Get to Know Us

Adam W. Grady, Registered Psychologist

In my practice, I strive to create a warm and collaborative space in which my clients can feel open to discussing their thoughts, feelings, and goals safely and without judgment. Because every individual is unique, I adhere to an integrative approach to psychological treatment, drawing upon Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Mindfulness Therapy interventions.

Following my education and training in Montreal, I returned home to Nova Scotia, where I have been practicing in both the public and private care sectors as a Registered Psychologist.

Emily Sweeney, Occupational Therapist

I’m an occupational therapist specializing in mental health. With a deep understanding of the intricate relationship between mental well-being and daily functioning, I offer a comprehensive range of services that combine mental health occupational therapy and psychotherapeutic techniques.

In mental health occupational therapy practice, I focus on helping individuals enhance their overall well-being by addressing the physical, cognitive, emotional, and environmental factors that impact their mental health. Through collaborative goal-setting and tailored interventions, I support clients in developing essential skills and strategies to manage daily challenges, improve self-care, and engage in meaningful activities that promote their recovery and resilience.

I also offer psychotherapy and supportive counseling services, providing a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to explore their emotions, thoughts, and experiences more deeply. I utilize a holistic approach that combines evidence-based practices, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and Prolonged Exposure Therapy (PE).

With ACT, I help individuals develop psychological flexibility, acceptance, and mindfulness, allowing them to move towards valued life directions despite challenges and emotional distress. CBT allows us to explore the connection between thoughts, emotions, and behaviours, empowering individuals to challenge unhelpful patterns and develop more adaptive coping strategies. For those who have experienced trauma, Prolonged Exposure therapy can be utilized to promote the processing and healing of traumatic memories, reducing the impact of post-traumatic stress and reclaiming a sense of safety and control.

My approach is client-centred and compassionate. I strive to create a therapeutic alliance built on trust, empathy, and respect. I look forward to the opportunity to speak with you and help you determine if Occupational Therapy services may be a good fit for you.

Chris Moule, Psychologist (Candidate Register) and RCT-c

As a counseling therapist, my approach to therapy is rooted in collaboration, empathy, and non-judgmental acceptance. With these elements in place, the aim is for clients to feel safe enough and encouraged to be open and explorative. My therapeutic approach is tailored to meet the unique needs and goals of each client while I draw mainly from my experience and training in Internal Family Systems therapy and Psychodynamic therapy.

I have experience working with clients struggling with anxiety, depression, loss of meaning, grief, PTSD (and various trauma), loss of self-worth, relationship problems, and other issues. Whether you’re struggling with a specific issue or looking for a deeper understanding of yourself, I’d be pleased to help. Greater emotional balance, resilience, purpose, and well-being are possible.

Hi there,

When working with me as your counsellor, my main priority will always be to create a safe and welcoming space for you that starts from day one. Taking the leap to begin therapy can often come with a lot of uncertainty and my hope is that together we can collaboratively work toward your goals in a way that feels both authentic and supportive of your individual needs. I personally believe in a client-centered approach and will draw from a variety of therapeutic modalities such as Narrative Therapy or Internal Family Systems, however my personal philosophy is to work from an integrative lens.

I truly believe that everyone can benefit from therapy, however some of my areas of interest include: stress, anxiety, depression, relationship struggles, self-esteem and work-place issues.
