Meet Ames

Meet Ames! 

Ames joins the practice as a clinical intern and is currently finishing up their Masters degree at Saint Paul University.

They are grounded in social justice and anti-oppression and take a client-centred approach to therapy. Their work is primarily with folks experiencing a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, adjustment to life changes, stress and burnout. If 2SLGBTQIA+ issues and transitions, or Neurodivergence experience are what you’re looking for, they may very well be the therapist for you. Ames’ work involves exploring how the ways in which childhood experiences can inform the present and how relationships can give us helpful information about how we show up in the world. 

You’ll find Ames will lean-in heavily in earnest,as they are interested in building warm, caring, and collaborative therapeutic relationships with clients. By holding space for processing life’s challenges, coupled with their commitment to continuing education, Ames creates a beautiful container to grant your Hard Stuff the space it needs to unfold and find healing.

Ames brings a well-rounded holistic point of view with previous youth workshop facilitation, forest school education, and health services education in their toolkit. These life experiences have supported their practice of centering relationships in their work. 

For clients looking to include spirituality or faith into therapy they are happy to include this dimension as Ames is studying that integration in their Master of Arts in Counselling and Spirituality. (But please don’t be put off by the mention of spirituality as they’ll only incorporate this into practice if you desire) 

Ames is available to work virtually with teens aged 15 and up, and adult individuals. Sessions with Ames are 50 minutes in length and $130 plus HST. To book with Ames, contact us here
