Christine Dodds, RP
Sees: Individuals, Couples, and Families
Christine is a Registered Psychotherapist (RP) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). She has a Master of Arts degree in Counselling Psychology, a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology, and a Mental Health and Addiction Worker diploma. She uses a variety of therapeutic interventions based on clients’ individual needs, including Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, EmotionallyFocused Therapy, Strength-Based Therapy, Client-Centered Therapy, and Solution-Focused Therapy.
Her approach is to work from a non-oppressive, non-judgmental, humanistic perspective, while encouraging clients to make their own life decisions. She has extensive experience working with individuals, couples, and families struggling with life stressors. Christine can help clients develop a greater understanding of relationship/family dynamics, patterns of behaviours that lead to problems, and underlying feelings associated with triggers. She can help improve relationships by developing effective communication techniques to resolve conflicts in a healthy way.
Life is always presenting us with challenges to overcome and it is important to transform stressors into opportunities for change. Christine works with clients to overcome challenges associated with anxiety, depression, emotional regulation, self-esteem, personal relationship issues, domestic violence, trauma, family related stress, separation, and life transitions. She helps clients develop coping skills to manage emotions and provides an alternative perspective to problem areas they may be facing.
In her spare time, Christine loves to travel, exercise, drink coffee, spend time at the beach, go camping, and spend time with her cats and dogs.
