Therapists in St. Thomas, Ontario ON, Canada CA
Registered Psychotherapist, MDiv
Accepting new clients! Do you feel stuck in your anxiety? Are intrusive thoughts or memories bothering you and getting in the way of your life? Perhaps your anxiety is also affecting your ability to be present and to function in the ways that you would like to in your relationships, work, or school life. Maybe you have coping strategies that used to work in the past but are no longer as effective for you now. If this is the case, do these issues then lead you to experiencing feelings of shame, wondering if there is something wrong with you, or questioning if things will ever get better? You are not alone and change is possible! Anxious thoughts and feelings do not have to dictate your life and relationships. Together, we will work on learning skills to help you decrease your anxious feelings, get unstuck from your thoughts, develop more helpful coping strategies, and get back into the relationships and activities that matter to you. My commitment is to come alongside you with compassion and care to offer direct, practical support that can make a difference now. I utilize a mindful, values-based approach to help you get back to meaningfully engaging in your life – whatever that looks like for you! I would be honored to work with you as you seek to live your life more fully.

Counsellor/Therapist, MA, RP, CT, CCC, CCTP
If you've been thinking about talking with a professional about traumatic past experiences that still catch you off guard, or about anxiety, a difficult relationship, stress, anger, or mild depression, I can assist. I offer in-person counselling sessions in Calgary, Alberta (Kensington) or virtual counselling sessions across Alberta and Ontario. Sessions are available Monday to Friday, and all adults are welcome. I've been in practice since 2009, when I led decision-making and anger management groups in Southern California. Since then I've worked mostly with individual professionals within my private practice Pine Tree Counselling & Psychotherapy and in contract with such organizations as Cleveland Clinic Canada and Homewood Health. My approach is primarily guided by cognitive behaviour therapy which looks at your thoughts, feelings, and behaviours. I am a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC, Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association), Counselling Therapist (Association of Counselling Therapy of Alberta), Registered Psychotherapist (RP, College of Registered Psychotherapist of Ontario), and Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP). Prior to counselling, I managed market research projects at Ipsos-Reid, and prior to that I worked at the YMCA in fitness. Accordingly I have degrees in kinesiology, business (MBA), and Counselling Psychology (Master's). For more information please visit my website (https://pinetreepsychotherapy.com), or contact me via my encrypted contact form (https://pinetreepsychotherapy.com/contact/). If you would like to book a session and you are in Alberta you can do so here: https://trudiwyatt.noterro.com. If you are in Ontario, please contact me directly. Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.

Registered Social Worker, MA, BSW, RSW
* NOW taking NEW clients!* Authenticity, compassion and results. You can expect all 3 of these from therapy with me. Whether I'm working 1 on 1 with someone or with couples, it's a priority for me to ensure you feel emotionally safe (i.e., not judged) in our sessions. I’m very genuine, knowledgeable, and committed to helping you learn, grow, and to create the changes you want. Unlike a lot of therapists, I often assign ‘homework’ to my clients to help them practice new skills and learn more about themselves. I value letting my clients be who they are, so laughter or swearing are totally allowed. I’ve been able to overcome some mental health and personal challenges in my own life. I know what it can feel like to struggle and not know what to do to make things better. I’d be honoured to help you achieve relief and better quality of life by drawing on my training and experience. I work with individuals age 17 and older, and I also provide couples counselling.

Registered Psychotherapist, RP, MPT
I believe that each person has a unique journey, and it is my privilege to accompany them as they navigate the challenges and triumphs along the way. Anxiety and worry can be overwhelming, often interfering with our ability to fully embrace life and connect with ourselves and others. My goal is to provide a safe and supportive space where individuals can explore their concerns, discover their inner strengths, and embark on a transformative path towards healing. Through a collaborative and compassionate approach, I help individuals develop a deeper understanding of their anxiety and worry. Together, we explore the underlying causes and triggers, as well as the thoughts, beliefs, and patterns that contribute to these experiences. By gaining insight into the roots of anxiety, individuals can begin to challenge and reframe unhelpful thinking patterns, allowing for increased self-compassion and personal growth.

Registered Social Worker, MSW, RSW, Registered Social Worker
I am passionate about helping clients uncover and challenge unhelpful thinking patterns and create new ways of thinking and feeling about the issues they are dealing with. I help adults dealing with an array of issues including anxiety, depression, stress and burnout, trauma, grief, self-confidence and self-worth, boundaries, and relationship and intimacy issues. In sessions together, we will lean into the uncomfortable feelings, thoughts and physical responses you may have been trying to avoid and that have been causing emotional distress, and help you regain your confidence in dealing with your specific challenges. Oh, and we will probably laugh a lot.
