About Our Practice

We provide psychological assessments and psychotherapeutic treatments to individual adults. Our practice is centered on a multitude of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) interventions in combination with Dialectic Behavioural Therapy (DBT) and other therapeutic orientations such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Humanistic approaches, Mindfulness-based interventions, and EMDR. All the services that we offer (assessment and treatment) use techniques and instruments that are evidence-based. We take any opportunity available to expand our skills in these types of treatments, in addition to emerging treatments. One of the defining characteristics of our practice is that we constantly seek to understand how new technologies can effectively and efficiently support the implementation of assessments and psychotherapy (e.g., precise assessment of sleep quality, ongoing monitoring of psychological symptoms, personalized workbooks, virtual reality, and more). We believe that you will feel welcomed walking into our office, and together we can work on the challenges or issues that are affecting you at this time.

I am a graduate of Yorkville University’s Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology program. Registered with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario, I also have membership in the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. I serve as Coordinator of the Association for NPD/Psychopathy Survivor Treatment, Research & Education, which focuses on this sub-specialty of domestic abuse and trauma therapy. I am trained in Brainspotting and EMDR, and employ CBT and DBT in my eclectic, person-centred approach toward treating an individual, adult clientele.

I believe that the pain that often precipitates therapy can be an invitation to develop self-awareness, self-compassion and skills to grow past our struggles, to become stronger and happier. As both a psychotherapist and facilitator of therapeutic art workshops, I share my passion for connecting people with meaningful engagement and rich learning opportunities, to enable their personal growth.

I am a Registered Psychotherapist and graduate of Yorkville University’s Masters of Counselling Psychology program. Prior to this, I earned a bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Sociology at the University of Windsor and later completed an advanced diploma program in Behavioural Science Technology at George Brown College in Toronto. While completing the latter program, I worked closely with individuals living with traumatic and acquired brain injuries, as well as with individuals facing charges under the criminal code within a psychiatric hospital setting. Following completion of this program, I spent time working with teenagers and young adults with autism in a learning to live program that focused on teaching essential life skills and fostering community engagement. After moving back home to Windsor, I began volunteering with Victim Services of Windsor and Essex County, whose primary focus is on the provision of emotional and practical support to victims of crime and tragedy.

I primarily use a therapeutic approach grounded in cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), which helps you to develop increased self-awareness, manage the problems that are impacting your life, and cultivate the skills and motivation to make positive and lasting changes. I will focus on creating a safe environment for you that is characterized by a strong working alliance and a collaborative stance for creating unique treatment plans tailored to your individual needs. I firmly believe that every person has the inherent ability to bring about positive changes in their lives and that it is my duty to help you to unlock this potential. We will work together to develop a treatment plan that is aligned with your goals and works best for you.

Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)

I am in the process of completing my Masters in Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University, after having obtained a BSc Honours in Kinesiology & Health Science and a minor in Psychology from York University, Toronto. While earning my undergraduate degree, I worked with mentally challenged adolescents, supporting them with daily activities and to face small challenges, one step at a time. I also dealt a lot with inpatients in the Psychiatric ward of a hospital in Toronto, catering to their daily needs and helping them make small changes to their routine, which would be beneficial to them in the long run.

Seeking more knowledge in the field of mental health has been a passion of mine since high school and during the past years, while acquiring the necessary qualifications to earn my Masters, I have also served in the Canadian Armed Forces, as a Medic (reservist). The experience has certainly allowed me to understand veterans and their family issues in more depth and thus, I can say that I now have knowledge of a broad and varied population of our society.

I utilize a range of therapeutic modalities that are tailored to the client’s unique needs. These include but are not limited to CBT, MCBT, DBT, solution-focused, and narrative therapy. As a kinesiology graduate I also utilize physical activities to assist with the treatment of chronic anxiety and stress. I believe that “mens sana in corpore sano” implies that we need to have a happy, balanced psyche to be able to achieve overall good health, and this is my goal with every single client.

Emily O’Connor-Derikozis

I earned my Bachelors of Developmental Psychology at the University of Windsor and have worked as a Psychometrist since 2019. I am in the process of applying to a graduate program in hopes to pursue my career as a Psychotherapist. During my university degree I spent a lot of time working with children who have autism, and have engaged in a variety of individual and urban communities within the Windsor-Essex County area through volunteering and employment with the primary focus being on individual growth and wellbeing. I am passionate about helping people recognize their potential, navigating their lives and thriving in their environments which I intend to do once I have completed a Master’s program.

Sahra Abdullahi

I am currently completing my Master’s degree in Counselling Psychology at Yorkville University, as well as a Master’s degree in Clinical Psychology at the Michigan School of Psychology. During my Bachelors degree in English Literature and Creative Writing at the University of Windsor I volunteered as a co-facilitator with the Bystander Initiative to end sexual violence. This experience changed the course of my post bachelor education and founded my interest in the mental health field. I minored in Psychology and began the transition into expanding my awareness about sexual assault and intimate partner violence. My passion became to support people in empowering themselves.

My approach to therapy and assessment is collaborative and considerate of the social institutions and experiences we operate within when finding the right therapeutic modalities for each person. My counselling mission is to create a warm, caring, and safe environment that assists others in recognizing their strengths and providing them tools to utilize and create fulfilling lives.
