Dr.Richard Majors Registered Counselling Psychologist
My Primary mission is to provide services that address the psychological and mental health needs of children, adults and families from both mainstream groups and multicultural communities, who have been historically under-represented in gaining access to mental health or excluded altogether to services because of their race, gender, class, sexual orientation or disability.
