More about Smita Gupta

Hi! I am a mother of a beautiful toddler and a therapist, who loves to make sound clinical judgments, based on standardized tests. I am an internationally trained Masters in Psychology with Post Masters Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy. Later, I also attended The University of Alberta for additional courses like Neuropsychology and gained ethical competency.

I have extensive experience working in a pediatric diagnostic clinic. Presently, I specialize in assessments, I can help with Psychoeducational assessments ( that includes but are not limited to, Gifted and neurodevelopmental assessments like ADHD, Learning Disability, etc..); parental evaluations, cognitive, memory and behavioral assessments, etc..

My Therapeutic approach is mostly influenced by cognitive behavioral therapy, Mindfulness techniques, and solution-focused brief therapy. In my personal life, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
