Welcome to Dr. Kaploun’s Office

My name is Dr. Kristen Kaploun and I am a Neuropsychologist and Clinical Psychologist registered with the College of Psychologists of Ontario (CPO). As part of my practice, I conduct a variety of assessment services, including neuropsychological, baseline cognitive, psycho-educational/psycho-vocational, medical-legal, insurer examinations, and specialty assessments, all of which are geared towards evaluating an individual’s level of cognitive, emotional and behavioural functioning.  I also provide psychotherapy, offering treatment in the form of individual and group Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and mindfulness to help individuals struggling with anxiety and anxiety-related issues, including insomnia and various other psychological concerns. I have particular interest and experience in treating prenatal and postpartum anxiety (i.e., perinatal anxiety) and offer a specialized treatment program, the Perinatal Anxiety Treatment Program (PAT Program) for new and expectant mothers struggling with perinatal anxiety.

I work with adults (18+ years of age) and seniors, providing services to individuals in the Burlington, Hamilton, Oakville, and greater Halton areas. I also provide services to individuals from surrounding areas who are willing to travel for treatment or assessment.

Prenatal and Postnatal anxietyPerinatal Anxiety

In my practice, I offer one of the only treatment programs in the area specifically designed for new or expectant mothers to help them learn specific skills and strategies for dealing with the major life changes that come along with having a baby. The Perinatal Anxiety Treatment Program (PAT Program) is a 12-week program based on the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), meaning that it is a structured, goal-directed, problem-focused, and active form of therapy. This program is also geared towards helping more seasoned moms who find themselves struggling with anxiety after a new addition to the family or feeling overwhelmed by the demands of caring for a newborn in addition to an older sibling(s).
