Due to the fluctuating, ever-unpredictable nature of the journey through our lives, we undoubtedly come up against situations, circumstances, and life events that can cause us to feel lost, overwhelmed, or unsure. We may find ourselves asking questions like, ‘Am I making the right choice?’ ‘Why do I always find myself here?’ ‘How am I supposed to be able to handle this?’ ‘Where do I go from here?’ and even, ‘Who am I?’ It is in these times that we recognize that there is no manual for ‘how to live’, and that navigating through life’s ups and downs, complications, major decisions, and unexpected and difficult trajectories is not an instinct, but a learned skill. You have taken the first step in your commitment to your own wellbeing, comfort, and happiness, and I am here to walk alongside you.
As a clinician, I take an insight-based approach to therapy. When we are able to reach deeper insight into the mind we inhabit, we are able to identify emerging patterns regarding particular ways we approach and manage interactions, relationships, emotions, and thoughts. In taking a collaborative and integrative approach to therapy, I am able to include psychodynamic, mindfulness, cognitive-behavioural, systemic, and emotion-focused therapeutic modalities where they fit in accordance with each client’s goals. I believe that the combination of these therapeutic elements allows for clients to foster a deeper and more substantial understanding of themselves, which in turn fosters the perspective and insight essential for optimal health, progress, and growth.
During your first appointment we will work together to identify and assess your unique goals, so that we are able to collaboratively create a treatment plan catered to your specific needs, in a supportive, respectful, and safe environment. With regard to couple therapy, I will first assist you in identifying, exploring, and unpacking areas in which you wish to see positive changes, and we will use these goals to guide us on our journey. We will work with one another in the creation and maintenance of a more secure and connected inter-partner bond, more functional and empathic communication skills, and more effective ways of managing distressing conflicts. I seek to assist both individuals and couples in creating a more stable, secure, and resilient sense of self or partnership in order to manage and overcome current struggles, while at the same time building the understanding and strength necessary to overcome those that will present themselves in the future.

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).
