Welcome to the office of Dr. Kristen Kaploun

Dr. Kaploun and associates offer a variety of assessment and therapy services for adults and seniors seeking help for difficulties ranging from support with everyday problems to more significant cognitive, emotional and other mental health conditions.

The primary form of treatment is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), which is an evidence-based form of treatment that is structured, short-term, goal-directed, and problem-focused. We have particular 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 anxiety.

We also offer specialized treatment for working with senior and geriatric populations in the community who may be struggling with the major life changes that come with advancing age. This would include the loss of a partner, stress brought on by retirement, or moving into residential living, memory loss, and changes to emotional well being (such as anxiety, depression, or OCD).

There are several assessment services that we offer. They include:  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. 

ASSESSMENTS

Unlike more invasive measures of brain function, such as MRI and CT scans, our assessments are completely non-invasive.

PERINATAL ANXIETY

While the term “postpartum depression” (PPD) has made many new or expectant moms anxious about how they will fare once the baby arrives, few women realize that prenatal anxiety is much more common, albeit less well known, than PPD.

PSYCHOTHERAPY

My primary focus is on treating anxiety and anxiety-related problems. I also have particular interest and experience in treating women experiencing prenatal and postpartum anxiety (i.e., perinatal anxiety).

Notice re: COVID-19 and Treatment Options

With the onset of the COVID-19, many of the health offices and resources upon which we rely have temporarily shut down in order to protect the health and safety of the community. In these uncertain times, one thing you should not have to worry about is access to quality mental health support. The mental health and well-being of you and your loved ones is of utmost importance to me. For that reason, I am pleased to share that all treatment sessions can be provided by telephone or videoconferencing.

Together, we will get through this.

Stay safe, and keep well!

Sincerely,
Kristen
