RENATA ASSIS, R.P. (QUALIFYING)

Clinician

I help children who struggle with anxiety, depression, ADHD, school difficulties, or have challenges regulating intense emotions and behaviour. While working with children, I assist their parents/caregivers and provide them with tools to support their loved ones, improving the quality of life of the entire family.

I also help adult clients with a range of challenges, including relationship difficulties and difficult life transitions, to understand and process their emotions and pain. My therapeutic approach is warm and empathetic and I encourage reflection that leads to change.

I started my studies and training in Brazil and continued in Canada, registering with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. I integrate techniques from Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), Emotion-Focused Family Therapy (EFFT), Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Mindfulness. I offer therapy in both English and Portuguese.
