Counselling Philosophy

The human experience has always fascinated me. Growing up, I was always curious about the world, especially about how people navigate it. This is what continues to motivate my work as a therapist. I believe in change and growth, and that these things are a process throughout a person’s life. It is an absolute privilege to get the chance to support and challenge my clients to move towards this change and growth, in whatever way that feels safe for them.

I offer professional, confidential, LGBTQ+ affirmative psychotherapy services for individuals, couples, and families. My approach is integrative and collaborative, this means I will draw on a range of counselling theories to help you progress towards your goals.

My preferred counselling theories for working with individuals include Humanistic, Existential, Experiential, Mindfulness/Somatic, Psychodynamic, CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy), Narrative, Interpersonal, and Solution Focused.

In my work with couples and families, the main counselling theories I draw from are Attachment, EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy), PACT (Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy), Gottman, Satir Transformational Systemic Therapy, and Family Systems.

I am also sensitive to your cultural and/or marginalized identities and the added complexity this may contribute to your experiences. I am open to your preference to integrate the exploration of these identities into the counselling process.


I am under the supervision of Dr. Martin Rovers, (mrovers@rogers.com) 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).
