"Just because no one else can heal or do your inner work for you doesn’t mean you can, should, or need to do it alone." – Lisa Olivera

Hello, I’m Gemma!
I’m a passionate individual with a profound curiosity for unraveling the intricacies of human behavior and the life experiences that shape individuals into who they are today. Motivated by this fascination, I pursued and obtained a bachelor’s degree in Forensic Psychology. This educational journey revealed my true calling: to assist individuals from diverse backgrounds in gaining a deeper understanding of themselves and embarking on a path of healing.
Recognizing that taking the initial steps toward healing or seeking a new therapist can be a daunting endeavor, I am dedicated to accompanying my clients on their personal journeys of self-discovery, self-acceptance, and personal growth. By fostering a secure and non-judgmental environment, I encourage clients to explore the areas they wish to address, providing support and collaboration, while always respecting their individual pace.
My therapeutic approach centers around the establishment of a strong therapeutic alliance, where clients assume the role of experts in their own lives. Embracing a holistic perspective, I employ various modalities that align with and cater to the unique needs of everyone. Among these modalities, Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), Compassion-Focused Therapy (CFT), and trauma-informed approaches will be used to foster healing and facilitate growth.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts Honors in Forensic Psychology from Ontario Tech University and am currently pursuing a Master of Arts in Education in Counselling Psychology at the University of Ottawa. As a psychotherapy intern, I work under the expert supervision of Yoshie Martinez (RP) and Yena Bi (RP), leveraging their guidance and expertise to ensure the highest quality of care for my clients.
Should you have any inquiries or wish to embark on a collaborative therapeutic journey, please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I appreciate the opportunity to work together, supporting you in your pursuit of personal well-being and growth.
