We often believe that we are alone in our suffering, that no one has experienced or could understand what we are going through, or conversely, that the suffering of others is much greater than our own, and that ours does not deserve attention. Fear of judgment, misunderstanding, vulnerability, and the unknown can keep us from reaching out when we need it most. That is why I believe there is power in creating space to explore the obstacles that hinder us from thriving. Whether you are making sense of your past, navigating the present, or planning for your future, it would be my privilege to walk alongside you on your journey of exploration and healing. Our sessions will be an opportunity to slow down and begin to untangle thoughts, emotions, behavioural patterns, and ways of relating to self and others. Whether you are coming in with set goals or are not quite sure where to begin, I am committed to fostering a warm, safe, and non-judgmental environment for all individuals, couples, and families to explore, process, and grow.
I use an integrative therapeutic approach, meaning I am flexible in my work and draw from different models depending on your needs. In our first session I will ask you questions that help me to get to know you, understand your concerns, and if possible, establish some of your goals for therapy. From there we can continue to work collaboratively at your pace on what is most important to you. I look forward to connecting with you.

I am under the consultation / supervision of Dr. Martin Rovers, (email@example.com) 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).
