Maureen Willis

-Owner, Registered Psychotherapist

At the core of my therapeutic approach is a simple, but powerful belief: Everyone deserves compassion, support, and the opportunity to thrive. Life is an intricate tapestry of experiences, both challenging and joyful. Sometimes, those challenges can feel insurmountable, but no one should navigate these difficulties alone. As a Psychotherapist based in Parry Sound, Ontario, Canada and British Columbia, I’m dedicated to helping individuals foster a deeper understanding of themselves and their emotions, enabling them to experience life’s journey with greater happiness and resilience.

I specialize in helping clients navigate a large variety of challenges, including (but not limited to):

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Self Harm
  • Suicidal Ideation
  • Relationships
  • Stress
  • Trauma
  • Anger Management

In our counselling space, you’ll find a welcoming, non-judgmental environment where you can express your emotions openly and honestly. This trusting environment can serve as a transformative platform for self-discovery, facilitating the processing of personal experiences and fostering emotional growth and resilience.

With my approachable demeanour and a mix of empathy, kindness, and, when appropriate, humour, I strive to make every client feel heard, validated, and understood. The therapeutic process is, after all, a human connection at its core. Your feelings, experiences, and insights matter—and they will be received with attentive care and understanding.

Our initial session is much more than a procedural requirement—it’s the beginning of our therapeutic alliance. We will take time to understand your unique challenges, clarify your goals, and together, we’ll formulate a treatment plan that aligns with your aspirations for growth and well-being.

As a BA, MA Registered Psychotherapist, I am equipped with the expertise and experience to guide you on this path, but remember, our journey is a collaborative one. Your active participation, courage, and willingness to explore will be the driving force behind your transformation.

Take the first step towards a more fulfilling life today. Reach out and let’s explore how we can work together towards nurturing a happier, more resilient you. Your journey to self-discovery and growth is just a phone call away.

Siovone Bourgeois – Registered Social Worker

As a social worker with over 14 years of experience, I bring a kind, competent, and compassionate approach to my work with individuals, families, and couples. I specialize in helping clients navigate a variety of challenges, including (but not limited to):

  • Life Transitions
  • Mental Illness
  • Career Changes
  • Grief
  • Addiction
  • Trauma
  • EMDR

Growing up in Thunder Bay, and later moving to Ottawa, I’ve faced significant challenges in my life, including losing both of my parents to early deaths and dealing with my own mental health struggles.

I am trained in a variety of therapeutic approaches, including CBT, DBT, narrative therapy, and trauma-focused therapy.

Since a young age, I’ve had a strong desire to help others as they navigate their lives, which is why I wanted to be a Teacher. Initially an English language teacher, I realized my true calling as many students would confide in me their  problems and dreams.

I have  eleven years experience as an inpatient Social worker working  with youth aged 12 to 18 and their families as they struggled with depression, anxiety, psychosis, and addiction. I have experience with grief, crisis, addiction, life challenges, mental health issues and relationship challenges.

My services are available in French and Spanish (my two other languages).

I believe that my life’s journey, education, and work experience can help deliver an authentic and supportive presence to those I work with.
