Michelle, MACP candidate, Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying), OCT.

Language: English

I am currently a Master’s level MA is counselling psychology practicum student who is qualified to practice under the clinical supervision of an approved practicum supervisor. I am also an Ontario Certified Teacher with 10+ years of experience. I am a strong believer in life long learning and know that life’s journey gives us many opportunities to discover and reinvent ourselves.

Life provides many challenges, we can feel stuck, confused or overwhelmed, not knowing what to do next. I want to commend you for seeking support, it takes courage and strength to be vulnerable with someone. So take a moment to be proud of yourself for taking the first step.

I can provide a safe, compassionate, and non-judgemental space for you to share your story. I would love to hear it.

I help individuals, gain better balance, manage stress, and improve their mental well-being. I believe that everyone has strengths that can be drawn upon to create the life they envision. We will work together to help you reach your goals, navigate any challenges, and empower you with the skills and knowledge to feel confident in handling your concerns.

I draw from various practices including Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Mindfulness, to assist with anxiety, stress, coping skills, parenting, relationship concerns, self-esteem, and other issues.

Outside of work, I am a mom, wife, daughter, and sister who loves to be with my family. I am also a dog mom to a large Newfoundland pup, avid reader and community volunteer.

I am a therapist because I want to help others turn their ‘wounds into wisdom’.
