Hi! I am Lynn. I am a registered member of the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) and a member of the Ontario Association of Consultants, Counsellors, Psychometrists and Psychotherapists (OACCPP).
I have a Masters of Education (M.Ed.) in Counseling Psychology from the University of Toronto. It is important to me to stay current with my education, and therefore I regularly participate in training and workshops. I have received clinical training in various evidence-based psychotherapies including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), and clinical traumatology.
Having worked as a psychotherapist in various clinical settings, I have helped individuals from different backgrounds manage a variety of mental health conditions including anxiety, depression, addictive behaviors, trauma, chronic pain, and mood disorders. In my past work, I facilitated multiple psychoeducational groups to help participants learn to regulate emotions and behaviors, cope with stress and anxiety, build resilience, and develop healthy interpersonal relationships. I also led a weekly group mindfulness program at a Toronto community centre providing psychoeducation to help individuals coping with daily life stressors.
I embrace a client-centered and mindfulness-based approach and integrates interventions from different therapy modalities to tailor treatment plans to every client’s needs. I am passionate about helping and empowering my clients to achieve more fulfilling and meaningful lives and providing my clients with the tools and strategies in facing their life challenges.
