ADHD is best understood as a mismatch between a person and certain aspects of his or her environment. And there are many effective options for changing both individuals and environments to achieve a better fit between the two.

Dr. Noah Susswein treats children, youth, and adults at the Vancouver Psychology Centre. He has been involved with mental health research, assessment, and treatment for over 15 years in a variety of settings including medical schools, community mental health centres, and inpatient psychiatric facilities. Whether working with children or adults, Dr. Susswein uses a strength-based approach that emphasizes self-awareness and courage.

Dr. Susswein is a therapist at Vancouver Psychology Centre’s West Vancouver office and provides dynamic 1:1 sessions for kids, teens and adults. He has a keen interest in digging in to the research and psychological and philosophical underpinnings of social issues that affect individuals in the complex world in which we live.
