Ketamine Enhanced Therapy (KET)
Ketamine is a Health Canada approved anesthetic used in surgical procedures as well as pain management. In low doses, ketamine is also used off label in combination with specialized psychotherapy designed specifically to work with the ‘expanded state of mind’ that ketamine evokes. KET is most appropriate for those with enduring symptoms of trauma, depression, anxiety, or other stressful mental health problems. We work collaboratively with either your family doctor, or our consulting physician to provide you truly integrated psychotherapy. This rapidly growing treatment modality is becoming increasingly popular, and we are pleased to bring this exceptionally promising treatment to our clinic.

We have been offering reunification therapy for many years, as an alternative to stressful and expensive court proceedings for families involved in divorce/conflict. Typically, one or more children from a family will refuse contact with a parent, usually the one that has left the matrimonial home.
Early intervention and support is strongly recommended if children have difficulty adjusting to parental separation/divorce.
Young Adolescent People (YAP's) Program
Adolescents and young adults are in a unique transitional stage where support is often needed to help them deal with the complexities associated with the increasing responsibilities of emerging adulthood. Behavioural difficulties, emotional concerns often have specialized issues that can prevent them from interacting with their peers or achieving success academically.
The program provides young people with the opportunity to consecutively grow their social and coping skills through an evidence-based interactive group. The approach is designed to be interactive and stimulating, allowing young people to participate in group discussions and engage with their peers.
A Clinical Consultation is a time and cost effective way of getting experienced clinical opinion on a range of ordinary, and sometimes not so ordinary, life situations. Such as the examples listed below
Dr. DeCunha provides clinical consultation for complex situations that require the consideration of psychological diagnosis, psychological impact or outcome and treatment recommendations. These consultations are typically requested by Counsel representing their clients in Family or Civil court.
Families Living In Separate Homes
We assist parents separate from each other, but not their children. This is for families that are amicable in their separation. This is a coaching process where parents are guided about what to say to their children, when and how. Each family is unique and each child is unique. We assist parents in optimizing their children’s adjustment to what is potentially an extremely adverse childhood event. It really doesn’t have to be. We truly believe that this is a good investment in the long term stability and adjustment of families transitioning through separation and divorce.
