Deborah Kanter
Supervised Practice

Deborah Kanter is completing her Ph.D. in Clinical-Developmental Psychology at York University. For her research, she looks at protective factors which stop children with aggressive behaviour from committing criminal offences. Deborah has a particular interest in resilience in her research and clinical work.

Deborah provides psychoeducational and diagnostic assessments for children, adolescents, and adults, with a variety of learning and developmental concerns. She also provides interventions for children, adolescents, and adults experiencing depression, anxiety, challenges regulating emotions, behavioural difficulties, autism spectrum disorders, parent-child relationship conflict, and trauma. For these interventions, she draws from evidence-based interventions, including Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT). Before coming to Broadview Psychology, Deborah trained in a variety of settings including the Toronto District School Board, the Hincks-Dellcrest Centre, Markham Stouffville Hospital, and the York University Psychology Clinic. She completed her pre-doctoral internship at the London Health Sciences Centre.

Outside of work, Deborah enjoys travelling, trying new restaurants, word games, and yoga.
