As a human, I have always been interested in what makes a person who they are. Realizing that one’s past can leave an imprint on who they are. I believe that we all have wounds from our past whether it be from relationships, hurtful words, or experiences that have shaped who we are. I am here to support individuals and couples through whatever has brought them to make changes to their future selves.
I am a person-centered therapist that is here to take clients on the journey of discovering who they are and where they would like to be. My goal is to provide my clients with a comforting and safe experience that allows them to feel that they are making progress in a space that is confidential and sacred. I tend to orient my work with clients with the attachment and systemic theories in mind however I integrate approaches to meet clients where they are at. Working with me will involve working collaboratively to ensure the techniques and orientations are a good fit.
I am under the consultation / supervision of Dr. Martin Rovers, (firstname.lastname@example.org) Ontario Registered Psychologist, for the ongoing development of my professional and ethical learning and for psychological services to my clients. I consult with Dr. Rovers regarding my clients on a regular basis. The receipt you will receive will be in my name, as a Registered Psychotherapist, which is acceptable by many insurance companies (e.g. Sunlife / government, others). If need be, I could issue a receipt in the name of Dr. Martin Rovers, Registered Psychologist, for the counselling services provided by me, a Registered Psychotherapist. It is your responsibility to determine which receipt works for our workplace insurance and benefits.
The regular fee for counselling is $150 (plus HST).
