I strive for a high standard of care and practice. I use therapies that have proven effectiveness for your individual concern. I continue education and training to ensure you continue to receive a quality experience. Some of the therapeutic modalities that I am trained and have experience in are:

  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
  • Narrative Therapy

As your therapist, I hope to help you recognize your strengths and potential, increase positive life experiences, and build capacity to cope with life's struggles.I value the importance of our working relationship and want to work with you towards your desired goals. At times we all may need support through life's challenges to reach our goals. Some time's obstacles are within ourselves, together we can look at the thoughts, feelings, and behaviours that are keeping you stuck in unhealthy or unsatisfying patterns and develop new strategies to increase your life satisfaction and overall wellness.        

My professional experience within a residential addiction treatment centre, community counselling centres and medical facilities addressing various addictions, mental health, personal, and relational concerns has been a valuable part of my professional journey and I bring those expertise to my private practice. Through my own personal and professional journey I have developed professional values that act as pillars to my practice:
Professional Values:
  • Collaborative work with clients and other health professionals
  • Brief therapy that provides symptom relief and progressive change
  • Focus on client's goals
  • Utilizing best practices
  • High standard care 

I look forward to meeting with you. You may contact me for a brief phone consultation or make your initial appointment. I offer day and evening appointments to make our meetings more convenient for you.
Warm Regards,
Jennifer Rioux, MC, Registered Psychologist
