Dr. Philip Toman,
Ph.D., C.Psych.

He is especially interested in the emergence of new, neuroscience-based technologies that expand our effective clinical toolkit beyond the usual options of medications and psychotherapy.

Dr. Toman completed his PhD in Clinical Psychology at the University of Waterloo.
