I also have an extensive understanding of the stresses inherent in working in the high-tech community of Waterloo Region, and the impacts those stresses can have on personal and family life.
"Change only occurs once the need to change exceeds the pain of staying the same." Working with individuals, couples, and poly groups, together we develop awareness of systemic factors influencing conscious and subconscious behaviours and decision-making patterns. Then we focus on increasing the strengths and resources available to, and within, the client. Building on the basic Buddhist tenets of mindfulness, compassion, and congruence, we can paint a different picture of both personal and relational issues, and more effective, authentic ways of growing towards your goals.

We sometimes find solutions easily through our friends, family , and community.
I am a clinical psychologist with 20 years of experience who specializes in the assessment and treatment of children and adolescents who are struggling with social, emotional, and behavioural challenges. I work collaboratively with each child and family to set goals and develop a treatment plan that is best suited to their unique situation. Therapy involves helping children and adolescents increase understanding and awareness of their thoughts and feelings and to support them to develop helpful ways of coping with their challenges.

I use internal family systems for Trauma work and mindfulness techniques to help you regulate emotions and increase distress tolerance.
Often taking the first step is the hardest. I offer a private and safe space to explore your needs and struggles. Often we lose sight of our greatest strengths in everyday life. I offer acceptance base therapy and then I help you work towards change. Most of my experience has been with young adults. I truly enjoy starting an internal journey with you. Different parts of you come alive in the therapy room. When you know yourself and your different parts it is much easier to cope with life's difficulties.

Each one of us has a need to be deeply heard. To be listened to in a space that is empathic, accepting and without judgment can be a life-changing experience. As a therapist, compassion and acceptance are foundational values for my work. You come with your own unique life story, influenced by your family of origin, adult relationships and experiences. By reflection and exploration, I help facilitate a therapeutic space which allows you to explore the deeper parts of your self and discover new possibilities. I believe each person has the innate wisdom to discover how they can flourish and thrive again.

Seeing your child, teen or family struggling is hard.
Aimee believes that families are the experts of their own experience, and that children and youth have innate wisdom about their own thoughts and feelings. Aimee’s goal is to create a supportive space for this wisdom to come forward, fostering healing and resilience that extends beyond the therapy space. Aimee’s individual work with children and youth is complimented by evidence-based parental consultation; equipping caregivers with tools to better understand their child's behaviour, strengthen family bonds, and co-create solutions to problems.

Through my work I believe that compassion and empathy are two of the most important qualities when seeking support. From time to time life can feel overwhelming and heavy, due to many of the experiences that we are faced with from Life Transitions, Substance Use (or Abuse), Gambling/Gaming Concerns, Trauma Events, or Mental Health Concerns; I am here to support you through it. I provide both individual and family therapy .

Our team focuses in the areas of trauma, PTSD, anxiety, depression, intimate partner violence, family stressors, gender identity, LGBTQ2s+, secondary traumatic stress, and clinical supervision.
We are social workers with a combined 50 years of experience, providing trauma-informed therapy and consultation services in Waterloo Region. We work collaboratively with our clients to establish a trusting, safe, and purposeful relationship. Throughout the pandemic, we witnessed a significant increase in mental health concerns such as social isolation, anxiety, depression, suicidality, addictions, trauma and grief. As a result, we decided that a collaborative approach to healing was more conducive to recovery. Our partnership was formed on this principle - connections heal!

My therapy sessions take these truths to heart by focusing on your family , either the whole group or individual members of it.
You are a devoted parent who longs to feel close to your child but the teenage years are giving you a run for your money. You’re tired of walking on eggshells, tired of the fights and the silences and too tired to take care of yourself. You need someone to listen and help you to understand your teen’s behaviour. You want to connect with your child and feel more confident as a parent so you can enjoy one another again and support them on their journey to adulthood.

Using EFT with individuals who struggle with anxiety, depression, repeated unproductive patterns and relationships, I help you find emotional balance with yourself and important others, repair disconnection, take risks and deepen your bonds with your partner and your family .
I work with individuals, couples and families through an adult attachment lens, trained and Certified in Emotionally Focused Therapy. Because we are so important to each other and feeling safely, emotionally connected is our survival as humans, we tend to use strategies we learned in our earliest relationships with our caregivers. We all fear the universal anxiety of abandonment or rejection and are wired to monitor our relationships for security. The ways we cope with our vulnerability when these fears get triggered can push us into negative patterns with ourselves and others. Learn to trust our needs and send clear signals.

Parenting can be hard. Social media, gaming, peer dynamics, school and mental health diagnoses impact children and teens which can lead to challenging behaviours that are difficult for parents to understand and respond to. At the same time, today's parents are dealing with their own life stressors (work, finances, relationships and mental health concerns) that can further challenge positive family functioning. Thriving Families Counselling provides support to parents and their children in achieving personal wellness goals and helps to foster positive change and understanding in the family as a whole.

Family Therapy Counsellors
Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.
