About Dr. Murray

Dr. Candice Murray is a Registered Psychologist whose practice focuses on ADHD/ADD in children, teenagers, and adults. 

ADHD/ADD often presents with other conditions (e.g., emotional dysregulation, executive functioning challenges, anxiety, depression) and Dr. Murray treats these conditions when they co-occur with ADHD.

Dr. Murray uses evidence-based guidelines for assessment and treatment services because studies show that these methods are effective in reducing symptoms and improving mental health.
