Mara Dempsey
Student Therapist


I offer a compassionate and collaborative space to support clients as they explore and shape their unique story. Sessions honour each person’s distinct needs and preferences through a humanistic lens. My goal is to assist each client to improve their well-being, find meaning in their lived experiences and emotions, and forge deeper connections with themselves and their loved ones – all while recognizing and nurturing their inner strengths.

I am pursuing a Master of Clinical and Counselling Psychology at Adler Graduate Professional School. I graduated from Queen’s University with a Bachelor of Arts (Hons.) in Psychology and The Certificate of Sexual and Gender Diversity. I have eight years of mental health research experience across various areas, such as mental disorders (i.e. depression, anxiety, cognitive functioning), sexuality and romantic relationships, and improving primary care practices. I am a student member of the Canadian Psychological Association, the Ontario Psychological Association, and the Canadian Mental Health Association.
