Areas of Expertise

Areas of Expertise

Assessments: Learning Disabilities and Neurological

The Halliday Center for Psychotherapy and Wellness is dedicated to providing comprehensive assessments for learning disabilities and neurological conditions. 

We understand the importance of early identification and accurate diagnosis in guiding treatment and support for individuals, especially children and adolescents who may face these challenges.

Learning disabilities can encompass a wide range of conditions: 



Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that primarily affects reading. Individuals with dyslexia may struggle with recognizing and decoding words, spelling, and reading fluently. 

This difficulty is not due to lack of intelligence, but rather differences in how the brain processes written language.


Dyscalculia is a learning disability related to mathematics. 

People with dyscalculia may have difficulty understanding numbers, performing mathematical operations, and grasping mathematical concepts. 

This can affect their ability to perform arithmetic, solve mathematical problems, and understand mathematical relationships.



Dysgraphia is a learning disability that affects handwriting and fine motor skills. 

Individuals with dysgraphia may have illegible handwriting, difficulty with spelling, and problems with organization and expression in writing.

Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)

While not exclusively a learning disability, ADHD can significantly impact an individual's ability to focus, pay attention, and control impulses. 

These challenges can make it difficult to process information and complete tasks in educational settings.

Processing Disorders

Processing Disorders

There are multiple processing disorders that can affect a person. The Halliday Center can help with:

Auditory processing disorder (APD)
Visual processing disorder (VPD)
Language processing disorder (LPD)
Nonverbal Learning disorder (NVLD)
Executive Functioning disorders
Memory disorders

Addiction and Recovery

Addiction can take many forms, from substance abuse to behavioral addictions such as gambling or compulsive eating. 

We offer a comprehensive assessment of the addiction, its underlying causes, and the individual's specific needs.

Treatment plans are tailored to the individual and may include a combination of therapies such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, group therapy, and family counseling. 

We emphasize a holistic approach to recovery, addressing not only the addiction itself but also the physical, emotional, and social aspects of an individual's life.

Recovery is a challenging process, but it is also a journey of hope and transformation. 

You can expect a supportive and non-judgmental environment where you can explore your motivations for change. Together, we can help you develop coping strategies. 

Self-discovery and personal growth are crucial in the recovery process. We guide you through that.

Anxiety and Panic

Anxiety and Panic

Anxiety and panic disorders can have a profound impact on an individual's daily life, affecting their ability to function and experience a sense of well-being. 

At The Halliday Center for Psychotherapy and Wellness, we address these challenges and help individuals find relief from the grip of anxiety and panic.

Our team of experienced therapists specializes in evidence-based approaches to reduce anxiety symptoms and improve overall well-being. 

Anxiety and panic disorders are not one-size-fits-all conditions. 

Therefore, our assessment and treatment process is highly personalized, taking into account the unique factors contributing to each individual's anxiety.

Our clinicians utilize techniques such as cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), exposure therapy, and mindfulness-based approaches to help individuals manage their anxiety and panic attacks. 

We also focus on addressing the underlying causes and triggers of anxiety, providing tools and strategies to build resilience and regain a sense of control.

We understand that living with anxiety can be overwhelming, affecting various areas of life from relationships to work. Our goal is to help individuals develop the skills and insights necessary to break free from the cycle of anxiety and panic, allowing them to lead more fulfilling and meaningful lives.

Bipolar Disorder

Bipolar disorder is a complex and challenging condition characterized by extreme mood swings, from manic episodes of high energy and euphoria to depressive episodes of low energy and despair. 

The Halliday Center for Psychotherapy and Wellness specializes in the treatment of bipolar disorder, providing expert care to help individuals stabilize their mood and manage their symptoms.

Bipolar disorder often requires a comprehensive approach, including accurate diagnosis, medication management, and therapeutic interventions. We work with individuals to find the right balance of treatment options to address their unique needs.

Diagnosis begins with a thorough assessment to determine the presence and type of bipolar disorder. This assessment helps us understand the individual's mood patterns and the impact on their daily life. Treatment plans may include mood-stabilizing medications, psychotherapy, and lifestyle adjustments.

Therapy for bipolar disorder typically includes cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), psychoeducation, and family therapy. We empower individuals to manage their condition effectively, recognize early warning signs of mood changes, and develop coping strategies to navigate the challenges that bipolar disorder presents.

Our clinicians provide ongoing support, education, and guidance to individuals and their families, fostering an environment where they can thrive despite the challenges of bipolar disorder.

Borderline Personality Disorder

Borderline Personality Disorder

Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) is a complex mental health condition characterized by unstable emotions, relationships, and self-image. 

At The Halliday Center for Psychotherapy and Wellness, we specialize in helping individuals with BPD develop coping strategies, improve relationships, and lead more fulfilling lives.

Individuals with BPD often experience intense emotional turmoil and have difficulty regulating their emotions. Our team of experienced therapists is trained to provide dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), an evidence-based approach that has been shown to be effective in treating BPD.

Treatment for BPD includes individual therapy, group therapy, and skills training. DBT helps individuals with BPD learn how to manage their intense emotions, improve interpersonal relationships, and build a stronger sense of self. It focuses on four key areas: mindfulness, distress tolerance, emotional regulation, and interpersonal effectiveness.

Living with BPD is challenging, both for the individual and loved ones. 

We provide a safe and supportive environment where individuals with BPD can develop the skills and insights necessary to lead more stable and fulfilling lives.

Grief Work

Coping with grief is a deeply personal and challenging experience. At The Halliday Center for Psychotherapy and Wellness, our therapists are here to provide a safe and supportive space for you to process emotions and navigate the grieving process.

Grief can be triggered by various forms of loss, including the death of a loved one, the end of a significant relationship, or other life changes. 

It often involves a complex mix of emotions, including sadness, anger, guilt, and even relief. Everyone's grief journey is unique, and we offer tailored support to address individual needs.

We help you explore your feelings, memories, and thoughts about the person or situation you’ve lost. This process can be deeply healing and can provide a sense of closure and acceptance.

Our therapists also provide strategies for coping with the practical and emotional challenges that can arise during the grieving process. We understand that grief doesn't follow a linear path, and we are here to support individuals as they navigate the ups and downs of their grief journey.
