Who Can Shaheena Help?

Children & Adolescents

With the ever-evolving challenges that children and youth face today, Shaheena has chosen to focus her practice on this crucial and underserved area of mental health. In her work she creates a non-judgemental and empathetic environment that offers the flexibility and security for children and youth to thrive in and succeed.

Parenting

Shaheena works closely with parents, guardians, caregivers, and teachers to provide helpful strategies and recommendations to better be able to help the child manage complex emotions, redirect unwanted behaviours, reward achievements, and create a healthy home environment that nurtures compassion, empathy, trust, and respect.

Families

Working with families in a number of settings, Shaheena has widespread experience with home/family life, socialization, and academic settings. With this well-rounded background, Shaheena understands the impact that moods, behaviours, and relationships have on the overall functioning and inclusion of children, youth, and their families.

Assessments for Children and Adults

Shaheena provides professional assessments for children that can be used to gain access to better treatment,  specialized schooling, support strategies and additional resources to improve all aspects of the individual's life.

Psycho-educational Assessments (Children and Adults)

In addition to Counselling and Psychotherapy, Shaheena also conducts psycho-educational assessments to determine the nature and extent of an individual's learning challenges. This includes evaluating how the person learns best, what concepts are difficult for them to understand, and how that information should be presented at home and in school. For children, the assessment gives teachers an idea of what might be most helpful for their student and their classroom activities, including accommodations that could be made for them to better succeed.

ADHD Assessments (Children and Adults)

Shaheena uses a comprehensive evaluation method to determine if you or your child are experiencing ADHD symptoms. This includes gathering information on the person's symptoms and behaviours, evaluating medical history, collecting information from parents/caregivers, teachers and counsellors, looking at past assessments and tests and, then, assessing whether or not the results indicate attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Giftedness (IQ) Assessments

Getting your gifted child assessed creates opportunities for them starting with helping them qualify for gifted programs and receive a more enriched academic curriculum that engages them and helps them reach their full potential. Giftedness assessments test for several variables that have shown to indicate giftedness in a child, including their IQ, academic performance, learning capabilities, problem solving skills, emotional intelligence and memory.

Adult Cognitive Assessments

Adult cognitive assessments look at important areas like memory, problem solving, attention, language, and visual spatial skills. Getting a clear picture of cognitive strengths and weaknesses can be empowering since it allows us to pinpoint where support might be needed, or where new skills could be built upon existing strengths. Shaheena's approach is positive, encouraging, and customized to fit each person's unique needs.

Mental Health Assessments

Identifying and understanding mental health symptoms provides a roadmap for treatment and growth. In a judgment-free environment, we'll explore mood, behaviours, thoughts, and emotions to determine if conditions like anxiety, depression, OCD or others may be impacting your life.
