Are you feeling stuck, afraid, hopeless, unmotivated or struggling to get through life? My name is Rebecca and I am interested in hearing your story. I will be joining Janine Ruddy’s practice as a practicum student this January, and working under her supervision for the next several months.
I hold a Master’s of Arts Degree in Counselling Psychology (MACP) from Yorkville University, a Bachelor of Arts degree in Kinesiology and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Political Science from Brock University. I am also a Member of the Ontario Association of Mental Health Professionals (OAMHP), and certified in Mental Health First Aid by the Mental Health Commission of Canada (MHCC)
I am interested in working with adults and young adults struggling with anxiety, self-esteem, perfectionism, depression and post-secondary school or work related stress. My background in health and counselling psychology provides me with the knowledge and understanding about how biological, psychological and social factors can impact one’s ability to cope with their stress in a healthy or unhealthy manner. I believe in the importance of providing you a safe non-judgmental environment. I use an empathetic, compassionate and results oriented approach that is meant to help you problem-solve as well as develop self-awareness, resilience and healthy coping skills.
I understand the effects of how one’s personal life can negatively impact their academic or work performance and living a fulfilling life. If you are struggling please contact me. You are not alone, and I am very interested in hearing your story.
