Jodi is 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 also completed additional training specific to treating couples who have experienced an affair or betrayal. Her passion is working with people towards 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 importance and 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. 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 training in Brainspotting Therapy, as well as specialty trainings in perinatal loss & trauma and the expansion model for 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.

Zeina is a Student Therapist, completing a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University. Upon completion of her degree, she hopes to become a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. Zeina already holds the title of Canadian Certified Addictions Counsellor, which she achieved after completing an Addiction Caseworker Diploma from McMaster University and a Bachelor of Psychology degree from York University. Previous to her return to school to become a Psychotherapist, Zeina worked in a variety of community-based settings, including acute psychiatric facilities. This rendered her experience working with concurrent disorders, domestic violence, sexual and physical health concerns, social isolation, suicide/self-harm, homophobic violence, discrimination, conflict with the law, and trauma. She also has a long history of supporting marginalized and underserved populations, specifically the LGBTQ+ community and people of color.

 

Zeina is known among her colleagues for her compassionate and empathic presence. These very qualities being noticed by the admissions coordinator in McMaster’s Addiction Caseworker program, are what set her off on her journey in this field. Since then, Zeina has dedicated herself to providing people with the best possible client-centered care and she continues to update her education and training as part of this commitment. Through her work, she noticed more and more that one of the gaps in achieving clients desired goals of health and wellness, was the lack of and longing for, connection and relationship. This helped Zeina to narrow the focus of her preferred model of therapy and develop a more specialized practice in Dr. Susan Johnson’s model of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFCT). Zeina is in the process of completing the Advanced Core Skills training in EFCT, as well as Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy Level 1, with the goal of pursuing Certification in EFT. Zeina is also completing a yearlong training in Compassionate Inquiry, lead by Dr. Gabor Mate.

 

Zeina is a proud mama of two little ones (plus a four legged one too!) who occupy most of her time outside of work and continuing education. Becoming a parent is in part, what inspired her to develop a deeper understanding of attachment theory. Zeina has a diverse family background. Her upbringing was rooted in the importance of family connection, especially considering she is a niece to forty-one aunts and uncles, and cousin to over one hundred. Zeina is comfortable working cross culturally, as she has family from the Middle East, Africa, Europe, and the Caribbean with diverse religious and spiritual beliefs.

Helen is a student intern who is completing her Master of Arts Counselling Psychology practicum at Yorkville University.  In addition to her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology degree, Helen holds a York/Seneca Rehabilitation Services Program Certificate and a Certificate for Refugee and Migration Studies.  She has extensive experience working with people with disabilities and has held various rehabilitation-related positions.  Her recent position as a disability case manager has provided her with opportunities to work with clients with psychiatric conditions, addictions, and physical health issues.  This work experience, combined with her life experiences as a parent, sparked her interest in becoming a therapist.

Helen is honoured to have the opportunity to support both individuals and couples using the model of Emotionally Focused Therapy.  She is warm, empathetic, and committed to her ongoing personal and professional growth.  She strives to create and maintain a safe, welcoming, and respectful environment, where her clients feel comfortable in sharing their stories.  Helen’s approach is relational, culturally sensitive, and client-centered.  Helen firmly believes that it is important to integrate culture into her work as she understands how culture can affect people’s interactions with one another.  With an open and nonjudgmental attitude, Helen works collaboratively with her clients to help them enhance their own and/or their partner’s awareness of themselves, so that they can heal, grow, and lead fulfilling lives.

Outside of Helen’s professional life, she volunteers as a responder for the Distress Centres of Greater Toronto.  She enjoys spending time in the outdoors with her husband and two teenaged children, connecting with family and friends, and practicing yoga.  Because of Helen’s experience as an immigrant and her diverse family background in terms of religious faith, sexual orientation, and interracial marriage, she endeavours to become a culturally competent therapist.
