Here is a brief bio from Alexi
I believe in providing you with a caring space, free of criticism and judgement, where we can safely explore your healing journey together. I look at myself as someone who will walk alongside you as a guide for support and will meet you where you are. Together, we will walk along old and new paths to uncover patterns and develop new understandings that bring meaning and authenticity to your life. I practice from a culturally sensitive and trauma-informed approach, using holistic and integrative techniques to create the right fit for your journey. Above everything else, I want you to feel heard and supported.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario, and I have completed a Master's in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University and received my undergraduate degree from the University of Waterloo. I provide support to those struggling with symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), relational trauma and abuse, anxiety, and depression. My experience also includes working with sexual assault and domestic violence survivors along with veterans, first responders and their families.
If you believe we will be a good fit, I would love to hear from you. Feel free to reach out for a free 20-minute consultation to see how I can best support you in forging this new path forward.

Below, you can find more information regarding Jessica's career and motivations for pursuing psychotherapy.
I have always had a fascination for learning about everything that is psychology at the start of my academic career. Whether this was the brain, consciousness, trauma, addictions, and even those complicated things we call emotions! As I progressed from my undergraduate degree in Psychology and decided to advance my learning with a Master's degree in Counselling Psychology, a different fascination came about. The ability to connect with and help another person through their traumas or life challenges became a focus point for me. To meet someone where they are at, validate and respect their past and their story, and have that person trust in my ability to help them, is something I can only describe as humbling.
Now pursuing a Doctor degree in Counselling & Psychotherapy, I am brought to another stage in my career, one that is more focused, more specialized, and better equipped to help those that may be facing complex concerns. I have also started supervising undergraduate and Masters students, as well as qualifying psychotherapists (RP-Q).
When I am working alongside the client that has chosen me as their psychotherapist, I like to refer to myself as the person that can put the pieces of the puzzle together. The client is the expert over their life and their narrative, I am just the person that can see what pieces need to be rearranged to achieve their idea of wellness."
