Dr. Margaret (Peggy) Voorneveld, Psychologist
I am available to see new and current patients by telepsychology online during the novel coronavirus public health situation.
If you are a new patient, please see below to book a consultation.
WHAT I DO
Located in Newmarket Ontario I work with adults (18 years and over), where my focus in treatment is to view each individual as unique, with an emphasis on taking the time to understand a client’s individual needs, and to provide treatment that is in an understanding and client-centered environment.
My approach is eclectic but with an emphasis on cognitive-behavioural therapy, relaxation therapy, exposure-based therapy and chronic pain management. Psychological treatment is in a safe, confidential environment, with an emphasis on identifying maladaptive behaviours and thinking patterns, and to assist in developing more effective coping strategies through treatment and education.
I am a psychologist with over 25 years of experience in the field located in Newmarket Ontario. I have a Ph.D. from York University in the area of Clinical-Counselling Psychology, and I am a member in good standing with The College of Psychologists of Ontario.
I am listed on the Canadian Register of Health Service Psychologists, and am a member of the Ontario Psychological Association.
Since 1997, I have worked in hospital and private clinic settings in the areas of Clinical, Rehabilitation and Neuropsychology, where I have provided treatment and assessment of clients. I have expertise in testifying in court and arbitrations, and have conducted catastrophic impairment determination and disability assessments.
Fees are based on the fee rate for psychological services that the Ontario Psychological Association recommends.

Please note that OHIP does not cover fees for psychological services. Extended health benefit plans can cover some of the costs associated with receiving services from a Psychologist.

What is a Psychologist?
Psychology is the scientific study of the human mind.
As practitioners, psychologists use their expertise to study thoughts, feelings, attitudes and relationships in order to understand behaviour. Psychologists improve health, and help people manage the challenges of daily life, by preventing and relieving psychological distress and promoting well-being.
Psychologists are the health care professionals with the highest level of training in the assessment, diagnosis and treatment of mental health problems and cognitive disorder
(Ontario Psychological Association).
