About my experience and qualifications

With education from U of T, George Brown and Adler University, I’ve completed a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology with a research focus on attachment and transnational parenting.

MY STORY

With varied experiences, I have always known I wanted to support others. Starting out my career in customer service, I quickly transitioned to work in the tech industry and became a key contributor to launching a start-up company. It was a worthwhile adventure but when that chapter came to a close, I continued to pursue work in the tech and software industry, later returning to my true passions of working with youth, young adults and families. From working with post-secondary students, to refugees and newcomers, folks struggling with addiction, and youth with barriers, I have worked in a variety of settings. In each situation, I’ve continuously been blown away by the strength and resilience of the people I work with and consider myself lucky to witness the change and growth clients make in their daily lives.

About Ginelle

Let’s be honest, life is hard, and in many ways, we juggle more today than we ever have!

Unfortunately, life’s challenges can leave us feeling stressed, confused, de-motivated—and in some cases, even helpless and hopeless. It can be a tough road to travel, and unfortunately, many folks feel like they’re walking that path alone, unsure of who to turn to or what to do next. As a therapist, I don’t think anyone should feel that way, so in my work, I commit to supporting my clients, guiding them, and connecting them to resources that can benefit them.

With past experience working with youth, students, adults, and parents, I enjoy collaborating with clients on a variety of challenges. From addressing past and current traumas to coping with physical and mental barriers, stress, anxiety, depression, family or career changes, I’ve helped clients find systems that work for them and achieve long-lasting change. Of course, there may be multiple layers to the challenges you face, and as a woman of colour, I know firsthand how some barriers can make circumstances feel particularly difficult or challenging to navigate. As a result, my goal is to consistently be there for my clients, help them consider various options and perspectives, work with them through the trials and tribulations, and remain a constant source of support, empathy and hope.

At the end of the day, I consider it a privilege to do the work I do and I would be honoured to work with you! Through our time together, it’s my hope that you feel like you’re building a stronger sense of confidence, clarity and community and that ultimately, you walk away feeling more capable and ready to take on whatever’s next.

If you think I could be the right therapist for you, please feel free to book a session with me directly using this link. Even if it turns out that I’m not the right fit for you, I’d be happy to connect you to someone else who is.

In the meantime, should you have any questions or require more information, I offer a free 15 minute consultation to any new clients and would be happy to respond to any inquiries via phone or email.

Thank you, and I look forward to working with you!
