Counselling Philosophy

Like the care we receive from a physician everyone deserves support and mental health care. I believe we are all human with experiences that shape who we are and I’m especially mindful of how relationships— with self, others, and systems affect your goals. I help connect you to your past experiences, understand the impact on your wellbeing, and I see my role as someone who is here to help ease distress, and aids in change.

My therapeutic lenses are both humanistic and relational and I integrate various models that will meet my clients needs such as cognitive behavioural theory, attachment theory, and psychodynamic theory. Some of the issues I focus on are anxiety, depression, communication skills, intimacy issues and any concerns that impact your quality of life and wellbeing.

Our first session will focus on the reasons you decided to begin therapy and we will collaborate to make a treatment plan that works best for you. I see my role as someone who facilitates change and works at your readiness and pace. I am a tool in your journey and a supportive ally that can provide you with the skills to thrive. I look forward to supporting you soon!

I am under the supervision of Dr. Martin Rovers, ( Ontario Registered Psychologist, for the ongoing development of my professional and ethical learning and for psychological services to my clients. I consult with my supervisor regarding my clients on monthly basis. The receipt you will receive will be in the name of Dr. Martin Rovers and the counselling services will be provided by me. Please see my credentials above.

The regular fee for counselling is $150 (plus HST, where applicable).
