Founded by Dr. Vanessa Lapointe, R. Psych., The Wishing Star Lapointe Developmental Clinic offers support through parent consultation, Parenting 2.0 consultation and groups, counselling, psycho-educational assessments, autism assessments, learning programs and support, and workshops. We have a caring team of highly-skilled and approachable Registered Psychologists, Registered Clinical Counsellors, and other professionals who have expertise in supporting infants, children, young adults and parents.
Anyone who has completed the full-day Parenting 2.0 course created by Dr. Vanessa and David Loyst is welcome to engage in individual consultation and ongoing parent group support.
Our registered psychologists have completed intensive and comprehensive assessment & counselling training. With this dual focus they are brilliantly positioned to bring a holistic lens to each psychoeducational assessment they complete.
We are proud to offer the opportunity to collaborate with parents, educators, childcare providers, early interventionists, mental health clinicians, and other professionals, community members, and “big people” in supporting children via the delivery of a variety of workshop topics.
At The Wishing Star Lapointe Developmental Clinic, we strive to create an environment of nurturing support. Our collective goal is to ensure each of our clients and families has their needs addressed skillfully and with compassion.
