Hello! We are Dr. Irina Valentin & Dr. Edward Blackstock and we’d like to welcome you to our clinic!
We have been on a mission for the past 20+ years to help kids and their parents achieve more by providing comprehensive assessments, treatment, and programs that help nurture strengths, support weaknesses and learn strategies to thrive at school, at home, and in life.
We both used work as school psychologists for the Peel District School Board and Catholic District School Board of Ontario, but decided that we would have a stronger impact on students and their families by providing private services, and so Valentin & Blackstock Psychology was born. We started by building our clinic through word-of-mouth referrals. Parents were so happy with our quality of work that they told their friends who told their friends and so on. Now with over two decades of experience and a growing team of experts in the field, we continue to provide the same quality of work that we built our business on, which is based on putting our clients’ needs first and always meeting the highest ethical standards.
We try to be as transparent as possible about our services and provide parents/educators as much information as possible about what to except when it comes to getting their child assessed. Please have a look around and let us know if you still have any questions. The best way to reach us is email – firstname.lastname@example.org.
