Each person brings their own unique and personal issues - Deborah provides a safe supportive environment to work through these issues and helps move her clients forward.

Registered Marriage and Family Therapist

942 Roundelay Drive, Whitby, Ontario

Problems that arise at work, in our friendships and intimate relationships, can often cloud our judgment with anxiety, stress, anger, depression or passive aggressive behaviour because we lack proper coping strategies for difficult situations. Because we don’t understand how to best deal with difficult situations it is not unusual for us to feel overwhelmed, confused, fearful and unable to move forward in our lives. Psychotherapy can awaken us to discover the real reason we choose our behaviours. Once we learn how we tend to protect ourselves from the things we fear most e.g. and overcome the emotional pain derived from unmet expectations, we learn that we can choose.

Heather Kent, MC, CCC, RP(Q)

Registered Psychotherapist (Q)

213 Byron Street South, Whitby, Ontario

I am fortunate to have had experience with a variety of counselling skills and interventions from diverse theoretical orientations, including solution-focused and cognitive behavioural interventions, as well as narrative, emotion-focused and body-centred/somatic interventions. Over the course of my training and my counselling practice, I have had the opportunity to incorporate many of these skills into my own supportive and client-centred therapeutic approach to counselling, which is largely influenced by narrative, Mindfulness-based, attachment, and strengths-based orientations.

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

James Hillman once said, "We've had a hundred years of psychotherapy and the world is getting worse." While there are many occasions where the validation and listening endemic to psychotherapy makes sense, there are times where we over assume that "feeling better" and "changing behavior" are the same. Grey Matters International, Inc. goes after the forgotten brain laws to behavior change that therapists miss when processing hours and hours of dialogues with people. Utilizing a cutting edge technology to facilitate the emotional process of change, we can make the therapy process way more effective, faster, and with less money spent. Contact or 877-606-6161.


Jeff Packer, MSW, RSW

Registered Masters Level Social Work Counsellor

Suites 204 & 214 - 58 Rossland Road West, Oshawa, Ontario

Psychotherapy is a form of talk therapy that helps you examine your qualities and characteristics aiming to assist you with an enhanced awareness of yourself and your relationships with others in order to foster healthy growth and development. Getting to know one another in the counselling context involves entering into a mutually agreed upon course of counselling specifically designed to assist you in your journey toward recovery, healing and optimal health and functioning. It does take courage and it is important for you to feel comfortable and connect with your counsellor. I look forward to discussing this further with you. Contact me for further information.


Tressa Porter, M.A.

Registered Psychotherapist and Consultant

Available for Online Therapy

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.
