Ashley Latendresse

M.A., Registered Psychotherapist

At the forefront of my therapeutic style is my intention to work with each client to best suit their unique needs and preference. The goal of therapy is not to change you but rather to support and guide you through a process that enhances your view of yourself, your life, and your relationships. Following a client-centred approach, you, as the client, are the expert of your own life and mind. To facilitate meaningful change, we will deconstruct what you are feeling, what you have experienced, and your current situation.
I recognize that it takes an immense amount of strength and courage to confront life’s challenges. Our time together through your therapy will promote healing by amplifying your strengths to transcend these struggles.

More Than Just My Work

I am also a person: a daughter, sister, friend, and partner. Outside of my professional role, I dedicate my time to connecting with others and replenishing my spirit through long walks and hot cups of tea. I also embrace my “dog lady” status as I proudly spoil my 13-year old dog (or any fur baby for that matter) with love.
