About Compass Clinic

Our team consists of highly trained Registered Psychologists, Registered Clinical Counsellors, Career Counsellors, Occupational Therapists, Speech Therapists and a Pediatrician.

Welcome to Our Clinic

Compass Clinic is a multi-disciplinary counselling and diagnostic assessment clinic in Vancouver. Our clinic is unique in that we contract to numerous health authorities in the province as well as see privately referred patients.  We happily serve clients from all over the Lower Mainland, and beyond. 

Our experienced team provides complex assessment, consultation and treatment to clients of all ages who are seeking to understand their own (or their child’s) strengths and weaknesses and develop a pathway to being a successful contributor to society. 

Our mission is to help find your or your child’s pathway to success.

Experienced Clinicians

Our team is not only highly experienced, but we have open door mentorship between clinicians.  This means that you will be able to access our whole team’s collective experience when you see one of our clinicians.

Wide Range of Options

We are experts in the field of assessment.  We offer a range of therapy/treatment options.  For example, we have clinical counsellors (whose services are more affordable) as well as psychologists, both of whom offer therapy services.

Group Therapy

Complex psychological diagnoses often impact the entire family (siblings, parents, family dynamic).  We offer support groups and therapy groups that specifically target these particular populations.

N

Public/Private Partnership

We have a public-private partnership.  We have numerous contracts with public health authorities within the province so that we see the most complex cases out there.  We also contract to schools and indigenous groups.

Everything Under One Roof

If your assessment needs require Occupational Therapy or Speech Therapy assessment, we can offer all of this under one roof. 

N

Communication

Complex diagnoses also impact overall anxiety and general well being.  Compass Clinic aims to provide therapy with a very clear understanding of why the patient is presenting with these needs.
