Description

Hi, I'm Laura Wilchesky a registered social worker focused on youth and adolescents at MindFit, a leading psychology clinic (or as prefer to say, "mental health gym"). Just like a "typical" gym, MindFit was designed to be accessible and inviting to anyone looking to improve their emotional well-being. 

I do everything I can ensure to ensure your child feels heard, supported and valued. My apporach is structured (with weekly handouts), evidence-based, and designed to help your child develop practical and effective skills and strategies to not only cope, but thrive!
