Julie Carter, BSW, MSW, RSW

I am a Registered Social Worker with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Services Workers, and the Ontario Association of Social Workers. I have a Bachelor's of Social Work from Laurentian University and a Master's of Social Work from McGill University.  I have also partially completed a PhD in Social Work from the University of Windsor.

 

I have worked for over 20 years providing social work services to children and families. During this time, I have worked with children and families in various capacities including as a private practice therapist. I draw on various models of therapy, so that the treatment approach is suitable and unique to you.  My primary focus is forming a trusting relationship with the client and creating a climate of hope. I use mindfulness and meditations techniques to assist my clients to bring awareness into the present moment and get in touch with their authentic selves. Additionally, I offer the option of Walk and Talk Therapy as I believe in the benefits of mind and body healing and because not everyone is interested in seeing me in a traditional office setting. I also offer Clinical Hypnotherapy.

 

Some of my areas of specialty are:

  • Divorce and separation counselling

  • Couples counselling

  • Parenting children/teens with special needs

  • Working with professional caregivers  

  • Working with new parents

  • Working with men

  • Anxiety and Depression

 

In my free time, you will find me with my twin teenagers and twin boxers. One of my greatest passions is travelling the world with my loved ones.

I have experience working with diverse populations. I offer a collaborative and client centered approach that is individualized to your needs, strengths and goals.

My greatest pleasure is being a mom to my adult and teenage children. I also love to cook and travel.  I was fortunate enough to have the privilege of adopting older children later in my life and understand the challenges of navigating changing family dynamics.

 

Diana Hewett, BA, RP.

I am a Registered Psychotherapist (RP) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO).  I have 35 years of experience working with children and families and I am passionate about helping families and individuals lead happier, healthier lives. I began my career in Child Welfare and have spent almost 30 years working at the Family Counselling Centre providing counselling services to adults, children and adolescents.

 

I believe that my greatest strength as a therapist is my ability to connect easily with people from all backgrounds and walks of life. My approach to therapy is informal, compassionate, and results oriented. I draw from many therapy modalities to create an individualized treatment plan for each person. Over the years, I have received specialized training in several play-based and Expressive Arts assessment and treatment models for traumatized children and adolescents. Currently, I am completing a Mindfulness Certificate course for treating Kids and Teens: Interventions for ADHD, anxiety, trauma, and emotional regulation.

Corrie Elliott, MA, MFT

I currently work with individuals, couples and families of all ages to assist them in working through presenting concerns including relational, conflict, mental health, communication and problem solving among others. I work closely with clients to honour and validate their goals for therapy and work collaboratively to create a treatment plan that works towards the clients unique goals. 

I recently graduated from my Masters of Marriage and family therapy with a couple's therapy specialization. I have additional training in Emotionally Focused therapy and I am currently working through a sensorimotor training program which is a specialized treatment program focusing on the treatment of trauma through connection with the body. 

I work to approach every client with humility and empathy. We all have our own journeys which look different and unique for each one of us. I appreciate the opportunity to build trust and rapport clients to help them walk their own path while I hold a flashlight and offer support through the milestones

 

In my free time you can find me at yoga, or spending time with my loved ones. I love to spend quality time with friends and family having new experiences.
