Paula Conforti provides a safe space for young people to evolve and reach their true potential. She is skilled at helping youth find and balance their strengths, build upon their skills and develop coping mechanisms to achieve optimal mental health. School psychologists/psychological associates are unique in that they have training and experience in both mental health and educational issues. Mental health issues not only have a major impact on a child's or adolescents' behaviour in school but also can seriously impact learning. In turn, learning difficulties impact a student's social, emotional, and behavioural adjustment. As a Member of the College of Psychologists, Paula provides an integrated service that addresses the whole child or adolescent in the many settings in which he or she lives (e.g. school, home, community).
