My passion for truly understanding people’s personal experiences, feelings and their challenges go back as far as I can remember, and allows me to provide the best support possible during times of need.

Whether you are seeking help individually, as a couple, or as a family, I strive to make you feel that I understand what’s going on in your life in a supportive, warm and sensitive manner as we discuss, explore and develop deeper insights into your current challenges

Devon has a Masters Degree in Social Work, is a designated Psychotherapist and a Registered Social Worker (MSW, RSW).

Additional postgraduate studies include a Marriage and Family Therapy Certification at the University of Guelph, which required advanced courses for couples, individuals and families.

Since moving into private practice she has focused her development on leading evidence based therapies.

Part of certification is to conduct at least 50 hours of EMDR therapy and in order to show your ability to diversify in different scenarios you are required to work with at least 25 different clients.
