Janeen Weatherhead, RP, CCC

Registered Psychotherapist & Canadian Certified Counsellor

My masters program was called Spiritual Care & Psychotherapy. I had 3 years previous to that in a counselling undergrad that focused heavily on building a spiritually integrated foundation for theoretical approaches with clients. During those formative years developing as a professional and discovering who I wanted to be as a counsellor, I realised that I was made to serve and model with high integrity, a compassion for my clients that would stand out in their lives; that I had the privilege to be a small seed along their journey to well being. I look forward to walking with you, building a wonderful relationship through the hard times and the celebration of successes. You are worth it!

Brooke Collins, MDiv.; RP

Registered Psychotherapist

100 Fergus Ave, Kitchener, ON N2A 2H2, Kitchener, Ontario

As a Registered Psychotherapist, I take your mental, emotional and spiritual health seriously. As you share with me the key conflicts that are causing you difficulty, we set up some goals for how you would like your life to be different as a result of our time together. Then every other session is focused on us working towards your goals. I offer person-centred therapy. This means that I believe that each person is unique and we tailor a therapeutic plan to meet your specific needs, strengths, and skills. I have been trained to filter each one of your concerns through a therapeutic lens. I will help you reach your goals by using a combination of CBT, DBT, Family Systems, Narrative and Trauma Informed therapies.


Laurie Blaikie, MA

Registered Psychotherapist

737 Belmont Ave. West (Belmont Village--near the corner of Union Blvd. and Belmont Ave.), Waterloo, Ontario

I believe that the key to successful psychotherapy is the development of a positive therapeutic relationship between the client and therapist. My approach to therapy is strengths-based and multi-faceted—drawing on techniques from Narrative Therapy, Family Systems Therapy, Attachment Theory, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy and Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. I believe that there is ‘more going right with a person, than wrong’ and that the work we do together is to find and explore the strengths and supports that you already have, as you work on the issues that brought you to therapy.

Tressa Porter, M.A.

Therapist and Consultant

Online Therapist / Coach

People often come to therapy to get rid of painful and difficult feelings. Rather than getting rid of our feelings, therapy is a skilled process of helping us understand ourselves so we can use our feelings to navigate our lives. Even the very painful feelings hold vital information for us to become sure-footed in our life. Just like in martial arts, we use the momentum of the attacker and redirect it to ensure our safety ; in therapy we use the information from the painful feelings to clarify what we need to create more safety in our lives so we can thrive. It is a valuable process of allowing our feelings to work for us to create satisfying joyful lives.


Elisabeth Needham, M.T.S.


28 Weber Street, Kitchener, Ontario

Text, twitter, e-mail, Facebook, phone – our society is obsessed with communication! However, I believe we have lost the ability to really communicate, to share our innermost thoughts and fears and to connect with others. More often, we feel nobody really listens, no one cares, no one is there for us. I want to hear your story - I want to be there for you.


Maya Polywjanyj, M.Sc., Psychological Associate

Registered Psychological Associate, Clinical Psychology

195 King St W, Unit 303, KITCHENER, Ontario

Therapy is a active process of getting to the heart or the matter. Listening is not therapy. Rather, therapy is a two way engaging process of exploring feelings, thoughts and behaviours in a safe, non judgemental atmospher. If there are particular behavioural or emotional patterns that are bothering you, we will look at the seeds of the pattern and explore new approaches. Its very important to have a place where you can hear yourself as you explore your raw feelings, hear your truth and get thoughtful feedback in the absence judgement. The goal is to enhance your sense of well being in your daily life. Happiness is there for you, when you are ready for change.


Rhonda Kane, R.N.B.Sc.N., MTS(PCC), RMFT, RP

Registered Marriage and Family Therapist

Bruce Taylor, B.A., B.Ed., M.A., M.Div.

Individual Couple Family Counsellor, Sex Addiction Counsellor

1550 Gordon St., Unit 19, Guelph, Ontario

The key is to find the right therapist and psychotherapy ... "what works" for you. Research confirms that a positive alliance between the client and the counsellor is one of the best predictors of outcomes in therapy. I am trained and experienced with numerous models of change. Clients report, however, that they feel the most heard and understood when I help them open up their emotions. John Gottman states that Susan Johnson is "the best couple therapist in the world." I have been trained by Susan Johnson and I highly recommend her book to you, Hold Me Tight, and also my Couples' 12 Emotional Needs Survey.


Shelley Read, BA, MSW, RSW

Registered Social Worker, Counsellor, Aging Well Consultant

690 Belmont Ave W., Suite 101, Kitchener, Ontario

Psychotherapy -- also called talk therapy, therapy, or counseling -- is a process focused on helping you heal and learn more constructive ways to deal with the problems or issues within your life. Generally psychotherapy is recommended whenever a person is grappling with a life, relationship or work issue or a specific mental health concern. Most psychotherapy tends to focus on problem solving and is goal-oriented. That means at the onset of treatment, you and your therapist decide upon which specific goals you wish to meet.


Janice A. Graham, Ph.D., RCC

Psychotherapist - Professional Therapy by Phone & Email

Psychotherapy helps you understand yourself better so that you can cope more effectively with your problems. We will start with you telling me the story of what is happening in your personal or relationship life. I will ask lots of questions for clarification and more details.You will gain insight and awareness of your established patterns of behaviour. This is not a speedy counseling method but its goal is to be a thorough one. Your competencies will be identified and reinforced and you will learn new skills. The goal will be for you to make good changes so that your life is more as you would like it to be. Psychotherapy can be an exciting process with positive growth opportunities for you.
