Individual Therapy, Student Therapist
Hayley holds an Honors Bachelors degree in Psychology from Western University. She is currently pursuing a Masters degree in Counselling Psychology at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (University of Toronto).
Before beginning her Masters' degree, Hayley studied and led mindfulness-based meditation and movement practices. She has continued to explore the convergence of mindfulness and mental health alongside her graduate studies through training in trauma-sensitive mindfulness practices and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction. This knowledge and experience informs her approach with clients. Hayley believes that genuine presence and compassion are foundational to building a trusting and collaborative therapeutic relationship, as well as meaningful relationships with ourselves and others.
Hayley is committed to practicing from an anti-oppressive framework and understands that our intersecting identities impact our wellbeing in different ways. She believes that therapy can be a starting point for ripples of healing and growth — from our internal world to our close relationships, to our communities — and holds the intention of advocating for those with whom she works.
In the past, Hayley has supported others in times of distress as a crisis responder with Kids Help Phone. She has also worked at various psychotherapy clinics as an intake coordinator, helping people navigate the sometimes difficult and scary process of starting therapy.
