Dr. Bramilee Dhayanandhan is a licensed psychologist, specializing in the assessment and treatment of children, adolescents, and families with a range of mental health difficulties. She has worked in various hospitals and community mental health centres across the Greater Toronto Area and is the co-founder of North Toronto Psychology. Dr. Dhayanandhan is committed to understanding and supporting the mental health needs of young people, particularly those who are not responding to traditional modes of treatment.
In treatment, Dr. Dhayanandhan strives to help create conditions where change is possible, by working with young people and their families to make meaning of their experiences, reduce painful emotions and problematic behaviours, learn and apply skillful behaviours, and cultivate acceptance and hope. Her practice is guided by attachment-focused and trauma-informed principles. Dr. Dhayanandhan has received training in psychedelic assisted therapy, and provides ketamine-assisted therapy to teens struggling with depression and complex trauma. She is honoured to be part of the Numinus team, supporting young people and their families in their journey towards healing.
"To heal is to touch with love that which we previously touched with fear." -Stephen Levine
