Hello! My name is Chloe, and I am a psychotherapist who provides support to people who want to reduce their anxiety, stop over thinking, learn to set clear boundaries with loved ones or improve relationship communication in general and those who struggle with perfectionism. I offer psychotherapy services both in person (Burlington) and online (across Ontario) for people ages 16 years and older.
My training has been focused around providing psychotherapy through a trauma-informed and attachment-based lenses. I am especially interested in offering therapy to those who are struggling with anxiety and want to learn more self compassion. As a certified clinical trauma professional (CCTP) I draw upon modalities including cognitive behavioural, narrative exposure, and sensorimotor techniques to support forward approaches to desensitizing and processing trauma. I also have additional training in a Flash like technique called 4 Blinks, which supports individuals with difficult memories and intrusive thoughts and/or flashbacks.
Personally, I am a lifelong resident of Burlington, Ontario. I first learned about psychotherapy services as a young teen when my parents divorced. A few people suggested therapy to help me cope with this big life change. With encouragement, I saw a local therapist who provided me with amazing support. Partly due to this positive therapy experience, I decided at the age of 14 that I too wanted to become a therapist. The concept of talking through a problem with an unbiased professional and how comforting and healing that could be really blew my teenage mind! Friends and family were encouraging and said that I had a natural ‘knack’ for listening and supporting. The goal of becoming a mental health care provider resonated with me in such a special way that this profession has been my main career goal ever since.
After graduating, I applied to Yorkville University and got into their counselling psychology program. While attending university I’ve also volunteered in different areas of mental health services. I have worked with the Reach Out Centre for Kids in Halton as a youth mentor for youths in need and helped them develop healthy social skills and self-esteem. For the past two years I have also been providing one-on-one counselling and mentoring relationships for at- risk young women in crisis. I support them in finding necessary resources and in developing critical thinking and positive social skills to improve their ability to make healthy and productive choices.
Every person that I have met during my time working in mental health care has one thing in common: they know their life can be better, but they’ve reached a point where all the ways they’ve been trying to cope on their own are just not working as well anymore. That’s where seeing a psychotherapist can help. You don’t have to do it all on your own, sometimes an outside perspective can make all the difference in your quality of life. If you’re ready for a change and you’re open to support, reach out. I’m currently accepting new clients (both virtually and in person).
