Dr. Borovay is committed to enhancing the well-being of children, adolescents, adults, and families by addressing their emotional, behavioural, academic, and relational needs. She uses evidenced-based approaches and works from a “whole child/individual” and systems perspective to address the presenting concerns; it is important to understand the emotional experience before behavioral outcomes can be addressed. Dr. Borovay’s approach builds connection that helps foster resilience by positively impacting neurological, social, and emotional well-being.

These struggles are compounded by the presence of anxiety, depression, learning disabilities & ADHD, to name a few. She offers psycho-educational and psychological assessment and treatment for individuals and their families.
