    Welcome to Tandem

    We offer a range of psychology services to support children, parents, and families as a whole. Our approach supports the family and empowers parents as agents of change. We provide quality, evidence-based counselling and psychological assessments for children. Our neurodiversity-affirming practice offers support for children with neurodevelopmental differences. We work together, with your family, to find solutions that fit and lead to long-lasting impact.


    We are proud to be a licensed provider of Social ABCs – A Caregiver-Mediated Early Intervention model. A program for toddlers, aged 12-36 months, showing social-communication differences that may be traits of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). This program was developed to help parents foster their toddlers’ emerging social-communication development.

    This evidence-based service is an exciting opportunity for young children with autism or autism traits to develop their communication and social skills in a natural way – through play, individual interests, and existing family routines.

    “In the tapestry of childhood, what stands out is not the splashy, blow-out trips to Disneyland but the common threads that run throughout and repeat: the family dinners, nature walks, reading together at bedtime, Saturday morning pancakes.” Kim John Payne


    We are also an authorized Gottman Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work Program Leader.
