Welcome to Orillia Therapy Services and Horseshoe Valley Counselling, Orillia's local resource for professional psychotherapy and couples counselling! The practice is owned and operated by me, Ricky Giesbrecht, a Registered Psychotherapist with a Masters Degree from Wilfrid Laurier University. I am typically relaxed and conversational and love having conversations that get to the heart of the matter. I specialize in helping people get "unstuck" from their current way of thinking about and dealing with issues.
 
I am especially passionate about helping couples reconnect by improving their communication and having conversations that get to the root of their struggle. My goal is to help couples really understand one other so they can better respond to each others needs and rebuild any lost intimacy. I also have world class training in evidence-based psychotherapy, so you can feel at ease knowing that you're getting top-notch service for a variety of issues, including:
  • Relationship Issues
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Trauma/PTSD
  • Self-esteem
  • Stress
  • Anger Management

I grew up in rural Southwestern Ontario (near the town of Tillsonburg) and have been practicing psychotherapy since 2013, after spending more than 7 years in the Canadian Forces. I enjoy spending time outdoors, hiking, skiing, reading, playing hockey, and spending time with family. I am an avid reader, mostly psychology (as you might expect), and I do my best to stay up-to-date with world leading thinkers. I especially love studying the history of psychology and how we got to where we are today. I decided to become a therapist after seeing many of the mental health challenges faced by military members and the population at large. I learned many valuable life lessons during my time in the military and I try to bring the same standard of work ethic and professionalism into my work as a therapist. I aim to provide a warm and friendly atmosphere, while ensuring you receive high quality treatment. There are many benefits to seeking services with my practice, including:
  • Warm and Welcoming Atmosphere
  • High Quality Professional Service with a Smile :)
  • Innovative Evidence-Based Approaches
  • Rigorous Training and Educational Background
  • Access to My Privately Developed Resources

I’m not afraid to provide direction and honest thoughts when it’s needed, but strive to do it in a way that respects your values. If you have any questions don’t hesitate to reach out, I’m always happy to chat.
