In an ideal world, therapy would be easily accessible to everyone and done in a culturally competent manner.

People of all ages have increasingly complex lives. At Ethos, we believe that building a strong relationship with your therapist and understanding your struggles in the context of your life is the foundation of good therapy and change.

When you feel connected to your therapist there is a trust that allows you to speak to your deepest truths. Hearing yourself vocalize your problems to someone gives witness to the events that have been keeping you from moving forward and allows you to start the healing process.

I was told from a young age that I was a good listener and easily understood people. I always knew that I wanted to help people, and after working as a counsellor for troubled teens and completing my masters and doctorate in Counselling Psychology, I knew I had found my calling. With so many people needing help, I built a team of Psychologists who provide culturally competent therapy and assessments to adults, teens and kids

At Ethos Psychotherapy & Assessment Centre, we take care of the whole you.

Our Mission

It is our mission to provide culturally competent therapy and assessments to honour your lived experiences, help you uncover your unique strengths, and take control of your life.

  • We believe that people have the right to be understood holistically, taking into account their unique family and cultural context including their ethnicity, gender, age, developmental stage, generation, disability, socioeconomic status, religion, and sexual orientation.
  • We believe people are not their problems or symptoms and that problems do not occur in isolation, but rather in the context of people's lives.
  • We believe in the importance of honouring a person’s journey through trauma, grief & loss, and life transitions from their perspective.
  • We believe that each person has unique strengths that help them move forward.
  • We believe that healing happens best in a safe, non-judgemental space where you feel seen & heard.

We offer comprehensive learning, attention, and developmental profiles, so people can more fully understand themselves and their needs.

We strive to provide you the support you need so you can feel better and live better.
