Lydia is a Clinical Psychology Master’s student currently studying at Lakehead University. She is accepting new clients under the supervision of Monique Mercier, M.A., Psychological Associate, on a sliding scale rate of $50 to $100.

Her training is informed by cognitive-behavioural therapy, mindfulness, and self-compassion therapies. She believes in empowering her clients through a collaborative process to explore their goals and to offer tools to develop long-lasting skills and self-confidence.

Lydia works with clients who may be navigating stress, relational difficulties, anxiety, depression, grief /loss, burnout, and trauma. Lydia also has specific interests working with clients coming from rural, remote, and/or underserviced areas.
