Ashley Major, Ph.D. specializes in the assessment and treatment of children, adolescents, and families. Dr. Major completed both her Doctorate and Masters degree in School and Clinical Child Psychology at the University of Toronto. She earned her Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Psychology at Western University.
Dr. Major provides comprehensive psychological and diagnostic assessments on children and adolescents to examine their learning, cognitive, academic, and social-emotional functioning. She also provides evidence-based treatments that are tailored to the unique strengths and needs of each child. Although Dr. Major’s primary intervention techniques are cognitive-behavioural, her approach to treatment is integrative and she draws from solution-focused therapy, mindfulness, dialectical behavior therapy, behaviour management, and emotion-focused therapy. She also assists families in strengthening their relationships and provides parents with strategies to support their child’s social-emotional development. Dr. Major has training and experience in working with anxiety, mood issues, emotion dysregulation, behaviour disorders, adjustment disorders, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, parent-child conflict, Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Dr. Major creates a warm, collaborative, and non-judgmental environment in which children and families can express their concerns and achieve their treatment goals.
Dr. Major completed her pre-doctoral residency at the IWK Health Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia—the largest pediatric hospital in the Maritimes. During her residency, she received training in community mental health, health psychology, preschool assessment, and eating disorders. She has also completed clinical placements in hospital, community-based, and residential treatment settings, and has worked extensively in schools in the Toronto area. Dr. Major has published articles in peer-reviewed journals and has presented at professional conferences in her field.
