About Gretchen Savery
I’m an experienced counsellor with a Master of Arts in Family Therapy and Systemic Intervention and a Bachelor of Arts in General Psychology. I’m currently a member in good standing with the Ontario Association of Mental Health Professionals (OAMHP). Mental health counselling has been a passion of mine for many years, mainly because of the many ways it can help individuals improve their lives. Counselling can help through challenging times, it can lead to self- discovery (which can surface people’s strengths and ability to learn, change and grow) and it can support the fulfillment of their potential, to succeed in life. My counselling style is based
on respect, sensitivity and understanding; it focuses on healing, gaining positive skills and improving harmful dynamics, behaviours, mindsets, and emotions.
My training in Family Therapy provides me with important tools to help modern families navigate the challenges that often affect everyone involved in the dynamic. I’m knowledgeable of various approaches from which I use the most suitable for each family in their circumstances. Other areas I focus on include Parenting, Anxiety, Depression, School Difficulties, Behavioural Issues, Life Transitions, Stress Management, Self-esteem, Toxic Habits, Communication Skills, Family dynamics, Skills training (ADHD, organization, time management…).
I strive to understand where you are and where you are coming from, to help you overcome difficult situations and/or develop necessary skills to fulfill your potential and get to where you want to be. I believe everyone has very good reasons to be who they are, and with my guidance you can take steps to become who you want to be, regardless of your past or current situation.
