Hello! My name is Christina Janiga (she/her), and I am the director and founder of Christina Janiga Psychotherapy. I am a Registered Psychotherapist and provide psychotherapy, clinical supervision, and EMDR consultation services for the Burlington area and across Ontario. Like many of you, I’ve been there, and have experienced many difficulties in life. Through support and help in getting the right connections to mental health resources, I was able to heal and find the happiness and strength to overcome these challenges.
With a love of learning, a positive outlook in life, and a passion for sports, I understand that regardless of life’s difficulties and the anxieties they bring, there are an endless number of ways to turn these hardships into opportunities for personal growth. Additionally, I draw upon my years of academic, professional, and personal experiences, including specialized training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) Therapy, to offer a multi-faceted approach in order to meet your psychotherapy needs.
As a graduate of Counselling Psychology, I also understand the difficulties students in this field can have in gaining the experience they need to realize their full potential. To address this issue, I also offer my clinical supervision services and placement opportunities for Master’s level interns (8 months to 1 year), Bachelor level internships (4 to 8 months), ongoing training for psychotherapists, and strive to expand and refine the skill set of future counsellors and offer my own specialized guidance.
Having presented in schools, learning centres, shelters, and high-performance athletic facilities, I offer specialized strategies and solutions aimed at helping people cope with and manage a wide range of life transitions, anxieties, and challenges. No matter what challenges you may be facing in life, I look forward to helping you heal, learn, and grow.
Christina has a Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology, is a member in good standing with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO), a member of the Ontario Association of Mental Health Professionals (OAMHP), a full member of EMDR Canada, and an associate member of EMDR International Association (EMDRIA).
