Ontario Psychotherapy Services


Couples Counselling

The purpose of couples counselling is to recognize the negative cycle you and your partner are in and identify what keeps you stuck. You will learn to understand one another, and how to relate in healthier ways with the goal of moving towards secure functioning.  


Individual Psychotherapy

Services specializing in anxiety, depression, grief, post partum, and emotional regulation. The purpose of psychotherapy is to learn to safely express emotions, develop insight, improve relationships and increase confidence. 


Trauma Counselling

Treatment for trauma is complex and a very individualized process. This is because there are so many forms of trauma and different ways it can impact someone. The first goal of treatment focuses on safety and stabilization.

How We Work

We see clients virtually and utilize a strengths-based approach, collaborating with clients to create a safe and non-judgmental environment to explore challenging issues. We aim to empower clients in a supportive and empathetic manner, grounded in the belief that therapy is an integral component to overall happiness and health care.


We support the use of multiple therapeutic modalities in order to remain flexible to the needs of our clients, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Hypnotherapy, IFS, Gottman Method, Motivational Interviewing, Narrative Therapy, Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy (PACT), Psychodynamic and Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy, among other methodologies as necessary.
