The Maplewoods Centre Team

The Maplewoods Centre is a clinical training centre and the services we offer are provided by teams including graduate students and regulated health care professionals in two distinct training programs.

Clinicians at Maplewoods are working toward either an MSc in Couple and Family Therapy or an MA/PhD in Clinical Child and Adolescent Psychology. All clinicians work under the direct supervision of a Clinical Psychologist or a Registered Psychotherapist who meets the CRPO supervision requirements and a Registered Marriage and Family Therapist Supervisor (RMFT-S).
