Our Clinical Staff

Dr. Pauline Belton



My passion and dedication over 23 years in therapy and education has allowed me to help a host of individuals and families find strength in learning coping skills and strategies that best help them achieve their ideal life. Children often struggle with school issues; the right psychoeducational assessment can reveal what your next true steps should be in making school fun and life exciting. My goal is to improve your mental health and educational outlook. My approach aims to find out your goals, struggles and strengths to help you attain positive living again. Every day is a good day to live out loud; to scream your dreams; to embrace growth. Let's have an open conversation.
