FVB Logo Here For You During Covid

A message from FVB Psychologists:

In the face of the current COVID-19 pandemic, we closed our offices in Brampton and Mississauga on March 16. However, our clinicians are committed to our patients and resolute in our determination not to disrupt the delivery of psychological services. Please contact our office to continue treatment sessions via telephone or using our secure remote software (OnCall Health). OnCall Health, a Canadian, user-friendly video platform, allows you to connect with your treating psychologist/psychological associate and continue psychotherapy.

At FVB Psychologists we will continue to answer the phones, book new and continuing patients, and respond to e-mail.

We provide both assessment and treatment services

Our clinicians are psychologists or psychological associates registered with the College of Psychologists of Ontario. This means we are independent practitioners licenced to assess, diagnose, and treat the full range of psychological disorders ranging from problems in living to serious mental health issues. Our practice also employs psychotherapists who are under the supervision of registered psychologists.

In addition, we are consulting psychologists to the Toronto Police Service, the Peel Regional Police (Safeguarding programme), and a number of airlines including Air Canada and Jazz Aviation LP.

Meet Our Team

Our assessment and therapy services are conducted by an experienced team of clinicians who joined FVB Psychologists after gaining many years of valuable experience in the public sector; for example, working in hospitals, universities, rehabilitation centres, social service agencies, and community-based clinics.

As a team, we are able to offer a rich, experience-based range of clinical services.

Meet The Newest Member Of The FVB Team

FVB Psychologists is pleased to announce that Fred Walter has recently joined our practice. His areas of special interest include mood, anxiety, trauma, and personality disorders with individuals from diverse backgrounds (including LGBTIQA+, religious, and ethnic communities).

Trusted by professional organizations across Canada

FVB psychologists consult to the pilot recruitment programmes at Air Canada and Jazz Aviation, to the constable recruitment programme at Toronto Police Service, and the Safeguard programme at Peel Regional Police.
