Jodi a Registered Social Worker who received her Master Degree from Wilfred Laurier University and has been working in Private Practice ever since. This has allowed Jodi the flexibility to expand her practice, while also devoting time to her growing family. Jodi has completed extensive training in couple therapy, specifically the Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) model. She has completed additional training specific to treating individuals and couples who have experienced an affair/betrayal, addiction, loss, and difficulties during the perinatal period. Her passion is working with people towards building or restoring healthy relationships while providing a safe, nurturing and professional atmosphere. Jodi also facilitates Hold Me Tight Couples Workshops.

Early on in Jodi’s career she developed a specialty in addiction after completing a Post-Graduate Certificate in Addiction Treatment & Prevention from Georgian College. After extensive training and years of working in a variety of Substance Use (SU) & MH settings, Jodi developed a sub-specialty focused on providing psycho-education and therapy to those struggling with their loved one’s SU. Jodi has assisted hundreds of individuals, couples and families in dealing with the often lonely and overwhelming personal impact of a loved ones SU, all while figuring out how to better support their loved one through handling crises, setting limits, effective communication and most importantly finding hope once again.

Most recently, after having kids and finding herself surrounded by a community of new moms and parents, Jodi realized the lack of support during this crucial time in a new family’s life. This launched her into countless hours of training through Postpartum Support International (PSI) in this area of Perinatal Mental Health with a focus on working with individuals and couples from pre-parenthood through to postpartum. including any loss endured along the way. Jodi offers a compassionate, non-judgmental and supportive space to process this often-monumental life transition in all of its concerns and difficulties, while increasing one’s capacity to enjoy this new and exciting time.

Jodi has also completed the Phase 1, 2 & 3 training in Brainspotting Therapy, as well as specialty trainings in perinatal loss & trauma, addiction, and the expansion model for blocks in performance and creativity. Brainspotting is a brain-body based treatment used to work through unprocessed trauma in the brain, which is incredibly useful in working through all of her above specialties and more.

Jenna spent many years working as a professional nanny and became passionate about child development. Through her work, she recognized the importance of contributing to a loving and secure base and how vital this bond is to the growth and development of the child. This ignited her interest in attachment theory and inspired her to pursue training in Perinatal Mental Health and Emotionally Focused Individual and Couple Therapy. She aspires to work with you to deepen your emotional awareness, attunement, responsiveness and engagement with self and other, which can also translate into deepening the parent/child relationship. As an avid learner, Jenna is committed to her professional development by engaging in ongoing training and familiarizing herself with a variety of therapeutic modalities, including acceptance and commitment therapy, mindfulness-based interventions, and Brainspotting.

Therapies Practiced: Emotionally Focused Individual and Couples Therapy, 

Populations Served: Adults

Services Offered: Individual & Couple Therapy

Languages Spoken: English

Sherriden is a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) who is completing a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology through Yorkville University. In addition to her BSc (Hons) in Midwifery, she has completed post graduate training in Emotionally Focused Individual and Couple Therapy, Fundamentals of Addiction, and Perinatal Mood Disorders.

Sherriden’s therapeutic interests have been shaped by both her personal and professional experiences. Having experienced relational and parenting transitions herself, she recognizes firsthand how important counselling support can be during these times. Sherriden enjoys working with individuals and couples anywhere along the relationship continuum, using the model of Emotionally Focused Therapy.

Sherriden has worked with both individuals and couples navigating pregnancy and supporting them during the birthing experience, while she practiced as a midwife for 10 years. She gained extensive knowledge and experience of pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. Sherriden shared many moments of excitement and joy with expectant clients but also supported them thorough the often-unanticipated stressors this time brings during pregnancy, entering the post-partum and early parenthood period. If this is where you land in your current situation, Sherriden wants to support you as you move through your pregnancy, birth and while you adapt and settle into your new role as parent and the life you are creating as your unique family unit.

Having found joy and balance through the creation of a blended family, Sherriden understands the unique experiences of the individual and couple during this time in one’s life. Balancing all of life’s pulls – kids, partner, work, family, friends, ex-partner – while also finding time for oneself (for Sherriden that’s gardening and being active outdoors), can be challenging at the best of times. And let’s be honest, we aren’t always able to show up as our best selves, especially as we navigate a global pandemic. Sherriden wants to offer you a place where you can come and talk about all your unique experiences. She will provide you with the most warm, empathetic, and safe space to explore issues of conflict and disconnection, and to help you move to a more fulfilling and satisfying self in relationship.

Sherriden is also passionate in helping clients, either individually and/or as a couple, navigate the often tricky and emotionally laborious moments when a relationship comes to an end. Sherriden would like to support you through separation and/or divorce, as well as co-parenting as a goal. She understands the feelings of fear and overwhelm and how important it can be to find a supportive yet structured space to work through all the decisions and the emotions that follow.

Linh is a psychotherapy intern who is completing her Master of Arts Counselling Psychology practicum at Yorkville University. Linh is honoured to have the opportunity to support both individuals and couples using Emotionally Focused Therapy. Clients know her best for her calming and compassionate presence, which is vital to cultivating a safe and inviting therapeutic environment. Her commitment to being emotionally present and attuned, allows for there to be space for whatever lived experiences you bring forth to explore in therapy. Linh’s approach is relational and client-centered, which means she is always thinking about you in relationship, even if you are working with her individually. In part, what informs Linh’s therapeutic practice, is the understanding that as human beings, we rarely thrive in isolation and often learn about the world and ourselves through relationship. It is when these relationships are struggling or we are feeling alone, anxious or experiencing symptoms of depression, that we struggle. Which is why Linh is excited to work with you to strengthen the relationship you have with yourself and with other, in the hopes of finding more joy and fulfilment in your day-to-day life.

As an immigrant herself, Linh has developed a deep understanding of the kinds of challenges that arise from such transitions as relocating to a new home and community. She brings about the unique lived experience of understanding individuals and couples with culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds, who may also be experiencing marginalization as they settle in their new community. This is why it is so important to Linh to work with a focus on being culturally sensitive and responsive to your unique needs. She feels passionately about exploring life transitions and cultural influence on people’s perception of themselves, their environment, and how these influence the way you show up in the world. She will work collaboratively alongside you, as you explore your strengths and release what no longer serves your mental, emotional and physical self. She will make space for you to grow and heal, both individually and within relationships.

Outside of professional life, Linh has been volunteering with Ontario Psychotherapy and Counselling Referral Directory as an assistant clinical supervisor. She enjoys reading, hiking and learning new languages in her spare time. She also enjoys spending quality time with family and friends. Linh’s family background is deeply rooted in the importance of family connection.
