I have worked with Dr. Audrey Huberman since 2015. I work with children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and their families. She has counselled and supported many of my patients. Dr. Huberman has worked with them in various areas such as conflict resolution, problem-solving and well as helping my families in crisis. My patients have always talked very highly of the interactions they have had with her. She is extremely competent at what she does and has allowed my families to feel success at home and school.

As a parent of an allergic child myself, I have worked with Dr. Huberman and found her approach helped to manage the anxiety associated with food situations and gave us real tools that greatly helped our family.

Both presentations were extremely interesting and so well organized. The information shared was timely and incredibly useful. Dr Huberman touched on so many ideas and her guidance will most certainly be put to good use. We greatly appreciate the informative and highly worthwhile sessions.

At our initial, introductory meeting, Audrey asked questions and listened. She was methodical and goal oriented and was able to assess our situation, communicate back to us what she heard our son was experiencing, and then establish very clear objectives for moving forward. A plan of action and timelines were also detailed. We knew immediately the fit was a good one and that we would be entering into a terrific partnership!
The ensuing therapy sessions were entirely practical and useful. Our son was part of the active process every step of the way: taking notes, drawing pictures, typing on the computer and generally working hard but in a fun and meaningful way. Audrey was able to connect with him and him with her. He trusts and respects her.
Our son has made tremendous progress since the early sessions. He has learned many invaluable insights. He is often able to apply his learnings in his everyday life and this is now a part of him. He references his workbook frequently, which provides ongoing guidance and acts as a refresher. The therapy process has been beneficial for the whole family, as we have all been fortunate to develop new thinking and coping skills. The education never ends, and we are thankful to have such a great support system in Audrey.

The most disturbing effect of bullying is the loss of self-confidence that drains the spirit of a child and affects his ability to learn and to function. Bullying at school had demoralized our son, affected his marks and isolated him from his peers. He had no friends, was lonely and humiliated.
Dr. Huberman empowered our son by giving him life skills to improve his interpersonal relationships. She gave him a place to express his deep frustration, helped him believe in himself, and taught him strategies to help deal with a toxic school environment.
With a fresh start in a new school, our child was well-equipped to make friends and have successful peer relationships. Now our son looks forward to going to school. He has friends who like him and give him the companionship that all kids deserve.
Dr. Huberman’s sessions offered us a chance to support our child, and reinforce his new skills. In outlining the long-term damage that bullying can have on a child’s psyche, Dr. Huberman showed us the necessity of changing schools to allow the healing process to begin. Thanks to Dr. Huberman, an enormous weight has been lifted from our entire family.

Dr. Huberman worked with our son and us to help him get a better understanding of his feelings and put them in perspective. She had a very clear way of helping him focus on all the things he could do (and do well) rather than dwelling on those things he couldn’t do. She also delved into how actions make other people feel and taught him how to assess situations and showed him how to present himself in such a way that people would want to help him when help was needed.
Dr. Huberman also helped our son look inside and reflect on situations where he needed help and those where he could be more independent. She would give him ‘assignments` between appointments to help him solidify new attitudes and behaviour. By including me in the sessions, I could reinforce the behaviours at home. All in all, the experience with Dr. Huberman was extremely positive for us. She has a lovely manner and excellent rapport that together with her skill and insight led to excellent results.

We, as parents have an entirely new understanding of our 3 children and their various needs. Our overall behaviour and attitude as a family unit have changed since we have been involved with Dr. Huberman’s program. Through her perseverance, understanding, and guidance, we have managed to implement all we have learned throughout this process. We are looking forward to continued success within our family, and want to thank Dr. Huberman for all her advice and patience…we have all come a long way!!!

We had a problem in finding a school that was a good fit for our son who has a learning disability writing, but could read at a very high level. He was frustrated and underachieving, was bullied, (began to fight back), and was neglected intellectually by his teachers. For most of a year, he was allowed to sit outside the classroom reading by himself. Although he ended up finishing some truly spectacular works of fiction, his life as a student was desperate and our home life reflected that. It took a few tries to find the right school. Through all that time we met with Dr. Huberman and was supported in improving our approach as parents and advocates. She was an ally in meeting with the school to try to work out a more positive approach between all involved. These meetings were difficult but useful in the decision to look for a new school and ultimately moving him mid-year.
Throughout this crisis, Dr. Huberman worked with my son to improve his attitude and behaviour at school and home. He is now in a school that he enjoys, feels safe in and will be successful in.
We still go back occasionally to fine-tune a few issues. I have to say I enjoy the sessions. We will probably keep going…..since adolescence is around the corner.”

Audrey has been working with our 7-year-old son with PDD-NOS for a year, teaching him about empathy, anger management, problem-solving and impulse control. She always speaks to our son in ways that appeal to him, which is so important in getting him to express himself more appropriately. And she has become a trusted friend to him. So much so that when our son has a difficult moment or something to share, he often emails Audrey for answers, encouragement or a hug, and she always responds with good advice and praise.
Equally important, Audrey is enjoyable to work with, one-on-one or as a member of our team who help our son outside of her program. She’s also tremendously helpful to us as parents to manage our own expectations and anxieties. She reminds us and helps us find the good even in difficult moments, so that we have the tools and confidence to persevere and be happy with our son and ourselves. Her advice provides us with valuable perspective, practical advice and much needed compassion.
As our son grows, we worry that he will no longer be able to rely on being so cute and vulnerable to excuse his social and emotional challenges, but we know that Audrey is teaching him the skills to be comfortable in his own skin and to be successful socially, emotionally and academically.

Dr. Audrey Huberman has an infectious enthusiasm and is quickly able to gain trust and build rapport. She worked with our son to set practical goals and relentlessly followed up with him to see that they were realized. Dr. Huberman has an ability to frame obstacles in a positive light, using humour and her unique perspective to effectively educate children and adults to challenge their beliefs and reach higher.
We truly appreciate the outstanding work Dr. Huberman has done with our family and would recommend her to anyone seeking positive change with their life skills.
