Founded by Dr. Vanessa Lapointe and directed by David Loyst, The North Star 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, Counsellors, and other professionals who have expertise in supporting infants, children, young adults and parents.
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 North Star 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.
Dr. Vanessa Lapointe provides guidance as well as administrative and theoretical training to the amazing North Star team. Dr. Vanessa does not see clients through the clinic and rather provides consultation support to parents worldwide through her Parent Transformation program, speaking and seminars, media appearances, and sessions.
