Colleen Robertson

M.A., Counsellor

As a therapist, I strive to help individuals thrive in their day to day lives. I have a very wholistic and integrative approach with each of my clients in counselling, drawing on many areas of psychotherapy (e.g., Cognitive, behavioural, humanistic and mindfulness) to help a client best achieve their goals. This means that with one client, we might choose to focus more on cognitive-behavioural techniques but with another we may focus more on working through past experiences. Therapy is not a “one-size-fits-all” method, and so working together to find what works best is key.

I have experience working with adults of all ages in areas pertaining, but not limited to, anxiety, depression, self-harm, suicidal ideation, trauma, abuse, low self-esteem, grief and more. I have a special interest in helping those who are in their young adult stage of life (18-30 years old) who are trying to make sense of their past while also looking towards their future. I also have experience with bringing an individual’s sense of spirituality into the counselling process, whether that through a more traditional religious sense or in more abstract means (i.e., core values)

I provide a warm and judgement free environment for my clients in the hopes that each will feel comfortable enough to bring their true selves. Therapy is an emotional process, and so having a space which feels safe is key in helping each client find self-growth and healing. 

I have a Masters Degree in Counselling and Spirituality from the Saint Paul University as well as a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology, specializing in personality and social psychology, from Carleton University.

My practice is supervised by Dr. Rebecca Moore, Registered Psychologist
