My name is Dr. Magdalena Lysenko. I am a Registered Psychologist in Nova Scotia.
I completed my M.A. and Ph.D. in the Clinical Developmental Psychology Program at York University.
I have received training at The Hospital for Sick Children, Centre of Addiction and Mental Health, York Catholic District School Board and the Children's Treatment Network. I completed my Pre-doctoral Residency at IWK Health Centre.
Population I work with: Children, teens and adults.
Types of assessments I do: Assessments examine learning disabilities, intellectual disabilities, emotional regulation difficulties, and inattention. Assessments are completed in English. I do not complete assessments in French, so I cannot complete assessments for youth attending French educational programs.
Population I work with: Children and youth up to age 19.
I provide therapy to individuals struggling with: attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), anxiety, phobias, other stress-related concerns, and depression.
Therapy framework: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Solution-Focused Therapy, Mindfulness, and Behavioural Therapy.
