Our Approach


The Springboard Approach

You can’t switch off ADHD. It’s part of who you are — but only one part. We’re interested in exploring the rest. Instead of focusing on what you’re not able to do, we help you discover your hidden strengths and steadily develop your untapped potential. It’s a unique approach we call Discover your SELF.

Our Personalized Services

Springboard’s various services are anchored by a core commitment: we’re here to help clients discover their hidden strengths and live more rewarding lives. We take a holistic approach, guiding ADHD assessments with medical diagnoses as needed, and complementing personal coaching with more in-depth therapy when we feel it will yield even better outcomes.

Our Team & Culture


A skilled team and a welcoming culture

When we opened our doors in 2009, Springboard Clinic consisted of three women: Dr Ainslie Gray; her daughter and co-founder, Laura MacNiven; and a business manager. Today we’re a diverse, multitalented and growing team of coach-therapists, psychologists, physicians and administrators — and the vision and passion that shaped Springboard remain as strong as ever.

Getting to an in-person appointment

What do I need to bring or submit for an assessment appointment?

  • Your completed questionnaires
  • Referral from your doctor (if applicable)
  • Valid Ontario health card
  • Any previous assessment reports (including psychological, speech therapy, medical or school assessments, and IEP/IRCP)

For kids, teens and students:

  • Please also bring or submit any questionnaires completed by your teacher, and report cards.

For online appointments:

  • You’ll need a private space, headphones – and a computer, of course. We also strongly encourage snacks, paper, a pen or a pencil (plus toys and other drawing tools for kids) – anything that makes you feel more comfortable!

What do I need for my Straight to Coaching initial appointment?

For an online appointment you’ll need a private space, headphones and a computer, of course – plus anything that makes you feel more comfortable!

Please also bring:

  • Your booking confirmation
  • Your completed questionnaires
  • Informed consent forms

And most importantly, bring yourself. We’re interested in learning more about where you’re at today and any goals you have for the future. We’ll talk about your understanding of ADHD, your strengths and interests, and your priorities for change, as well as your coaching and psychotherapeutic needs.

At the end of the session, you’ll get a summary what we discussed, outlining your priorities and suggesting a few activities to get you started.

What do I need for my coaching and therapy appointment?

For an online appointment you’ll need a private space, headphones, maybe a pen and notebook and a computer, of course – plus anything that makes you feel more comfortable!

If you wish, you can prepare by thinking about areas where you’re having difficulty, or strategies you’d like to try. But all you really need to bring to the session is yourself. Your coach will meet you where you are in your ADHD journey and work alongside you toward whatever goals you define together.
