The idea for the clinic was inspired by Randy’s time completing his postdoctoral research in the United Kingdom, where he encountered a version of this treatment model and was compelled by its possibilities. His vision has evolved with the clinic itself, which he says has grown to encompass a wider range of clinical specialities and treatment modalities than he could have imagined when he first opened its doors in 1998. Over the years, Randy has thoughtfully built a team of qualified, dynamic clinicians with varied and complementary expertise. As the team grew, the clinic’s primary focus on anxiety, depression and stress broadened to include addictions, eating disorders, couples therapy, children’s mental health, neuropsychological assessment, psychosis, insomnia, career coaching and many other areas. We know that clients and their families often have multiple issues that they want to address, and we are proud to be able to offer integrated treatment under one roof.
From its first day, what has truly set the clinic apart is its dedicated team of clinicians guided by Randy’s leadership and trailblazing spirit. We are united by our passion for the work we do, our collaborative ethos, our dedication to evidence-based treatment, and our commitment to helping our clients build healthier and happier lives. What began as a single office on the first floor of 101 Dupont in 1998 has transformed into a practice with 35 active clinicians and four administrative staff that occupy all of the original building and the entirety of 99 Dupont next door. We all feel privileged to not only do what we love every day, but to work with the brave and resilient clients who put their trust in us to help them on their journey toward health and well-being.
The view from the sidewalk in front of 101 Dupont is a little different than it was in 1998 – the trees are bigger, the neighbourhood is more vibrant, and many more people make their way up and down our front steps each day. What has stayed the same is our commitment to providing an exceptional standard of clinical care and to remaining open to the exciting possibilities that Randy’s concept of “a clinic” continues to offer us and our clients.
