Natasha Corbin

Natasha is a registered psychologist trained in school psychology.  She has over 16 years of experience working collaboratively with schools, students and parents to support student success within a local regional centre.  At Milestones Psychological Services, she provides assessment services to children and youth.  Psycho-educational assessments are beneficial to gain information about an individual’s learning, to clarify barriers that are impacting success or preventing individuals from reaching their full potential, and to support school-based programming.  My suggestions and recommendations are guided by my knowledge of the education system in combination with best practices and evidence-based interventions.  


Natasha is available evenings and weekends, by appointment.
