Robin Salmon, MA, RP (Qualifying)
Life can be hard, and oftentimes, these difficulties arise at a young age. Working with young people is my passion because this is such a pivotal time of life, full of challenges, transitions, and questions. This is the time of discovering who you are and what you want to do; and it can be a lot when you are also trying to manage school, work, family dynamics, peer dynamics, relationship dynamics, and your sense of self-esteem and self-worth. This can be even more challenging if you are neurodivergent, if you have mental health concerns, or if you’ve experienced trauma or loss.
I can offer compassion and understanding, as I too have faced many of these challenges myself. I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression at a young age and have experienced major life transitions as well as loss and trauma. It hasn’t been an easy or straight road forward; but it is through the difficulties that we grow and learn. My life experiences inspired me to become a therapist and support others’ growth, healing, and discovery. Therapy can be an incredible avenue to living the life you want and deserve.
I provide virtual therapy in Ontario. Although being virtual means we are not in the same room, we are in the same space. We are occupying this part of the universe together, transcending the physical distance between us.
Because I want to honour everyone's unique experience, I approach therapy through a person-centred lens, incorporating aspects of other theories and therapies depending on what resonates with you. Some of these include Humanistic, Existential, Compassion-Focused, Strength-Based, Positive Psychology, Mindfulness, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I am committed to life-long learning and continue to seek out training opportunities in other theories and therapies as well.
I am here to work alongside you during your journey of growth, healing, and deeper understanding. I will hold a safe, supportive, nonjudgmental space for you to explore your thoughts, feelings, and experiences, and to feel seen, heard, and understood.
If you are experiencing stress, anxiety, depression, grief, loss, life transitions, or learning disabilities/difficulties, I would be honoured to work with you and embark on this journey together.
