Janice's approach

Existential psychotherapy is a talk therapy that acknowledges how meaning and purpose impact a sense of wellbeing.  Existential psychotherapy is dynamic because humans often experience conflicting forces between how they feel, think, and behave. I integrate Existential techniques with other approaches including Emotionally Focused Therapy, Strength-Based Therapy, ACT, CBT, Positive Psychology, and Mindfulness. 


Existential therapy can provide a clearer internal sense of how to live based on what is most meaningful to you. When you face difficult life transitions, such as divorce and separation or death of a loved one, your sense of self and meaning can be impacted and challenged.  Existential therapy involves examining your core beliefs, perspectives, and values.


The meaning you derive at each stage of your life is continually being recreated. As your therapist, I will act as a guide, process consultant, and fellow traveller.  

Humans are wired to seek and live connected to important others. Part of our work together will be to create life-enhancing experiences of inclusion, presence, authenticity, and belonging.

Your Road Forward for divorce recovery and grief and loss had its inception in Oakville, Ontario but through virtual practice you can access psychotherapy wherever you are located in Ontario.
