All Hands In

Meet the Team

Dr. Michelle Fardella, C. Psych

Clinical/School Psychologist
Director
(she/her)

I love working in a multidisciplinary team, with schools, and collaboratively with families. WonderTree is my opportunity to bring those passions together and provide fast, evidence-based care to families in Ontario. I want to help you help your child. Whether that be through an assessment to explore a potential diagnosis, working with you as a parent, your family, or your child in therapy, or consulting with your child’s clinical team here at WonderTree or their school. I provide integrative treatment, drawing from CBT, EFFT/EFT, ERP, and attachment based therapies to children and families. I support youth presenting with various needs, including autistic youth, those with ADHD, learning disabilities, mood, emotion dysregulation, or behavioural concerns. My early career focused on the mental health and well-being of autistic youth and their families, and this is still an area of passion I carry forward today. I have a special clinical interest in abuse prevention and sexual health and relationship education in neurodivergent youth.

 

Personally, I am a mother to two young children living in the Caledon region. I also have personal experience navigating IEPs, testing, and child advocacy.

*Dr. Fardella currently works at the Dufferin-Peel Catholic School Board (DPCDSB), and is unable to see students currently registered at DPCDSB as this is a conflict of interest.
