Maryse Hebert, MA, Registered Psychotherapist
I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. I hold a bilingual Bachelors of Arts degree from the University of Alberta and a Masters in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University.
I have a special interest in working with youths, adults and couples. I have clinical experience in counselling treatment and research, with both youths and adults experiencing different concerns including anxiety, depression, self-esteem, body image, trauma as well as interpersonal concerns.
As a cognitive-behavioural therapist, I focus on providing hands on tools and interventions that work to reduce presenting concerns and improve your quality of life as a result of developing new coping strategies. These coping strategies will help you become more resilient when facing challenges and can lead to improved self-esteem and interpersonal relationships. As an Attachment therapist, we also dig deeper and explore the root of some of your core issues to foster self-awareness and understanding. The explorative approach I take in counselling will also help you understand the roots of your symptoms, which is crucial in fostering long-term change.
My goal is to understand you, make you feel valued and accepted and also to make you feel empowered. Together, we will begin a journey of self-discovery, healing and growth so that you can live the life you envisioned for yourself.
Alexis Martel-Lamothe (she/her), MSW, Registered Social Worker
I am a Registered Social Worker (RSW) with a Masters of Social Work (MSW) from Indiana University South Bend and a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from the University of Notre Dame (USA). I am available to offer services both in English and French.
I am passionate about working with women, LGBTQ+ individuals, and athletes, and I welcome all who wish to improve their overall mental well-being. Some of my areas of interest include helping those who are struggling with ADHD, anxiety, panic disorder, identity exploration, performance anxiety, and confidence/self-esteem building.
My primary therapeutic approaches include using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). I love to work with clients utilizing a strengths based approach in order to help each individual build on their strongest qualities to reach their respective goals. Additionally, I enjoy utilizing art as a medium for communication in sessions for those who are interested in such an approach.
I prioritize giving each client the opportunity to guide their own personal growth within a therapeutic context and I look forward to being a part of your therapeutic journey.
