More about Chanelle Wilton

I have a special interest in working with anxiety disorders, depression, borderline personality disorder and trauma. I believe strongly in a collaborative approach, in which our combined efforts will facilitate the growth and change you are seeking.

I have an innate curiosity for all things pertaining to human development and research in the field of psychology. This assists me in staying current and informed with regards to best practices and treatment approaches. I take seriously my responsibility as a practitioner and the trust that you impart on me as a client.

I have additional specialized training in Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, which has helped me to refine my skills in these areas. Additionally, I am interested in the field of trauma therapy, and during my practicum with The Family Centre I had the opportunity to work with individuals facing a wide range of trauma related issues. In my work with Child and Family Services, I gained significant experience working with difficult custody and visitation matters, and assessments in this area are of particular interest to me.
