Psychologists are registered or licensed by the province in which they practice. The Canadian Register of Health Service Psychologists (CRHSP) does not license Psychologists but does keep a list of individuals across Canada who practice health-related psychology and who have voluntarily submitted their credentials for verification and listing. Dr. Stevens can be found on this register.
