Aaliya Blais-Batres, M.A, RP (Qualifying)

Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)

Navigating the complexities of past or present experiences can be daunting, and the idea of discussing them with a stranger may feel overwhelming. I understand that taking the first step towards therapy can be challenging. I strive to make the process as comfortable as possible. Embracing a holistic and client-centered approach, I tailor my methods to accommodate your specific needs and therapy goals. Creating a safe and supportive space is paramount to me; I value the therapeutic relationship and believe that together, we can collaboratively work towards achieving your goals. Therapy is a personalized and transformative experience, that can provide a path toward understanding, growth, and relief from the challenging feelings and thoughts you may be experiencing.

I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with a specific focus on working with anxiety, depression, trauma, people-pleasing, stress management, relationship challenges, and self-esteem. I am EFT, ACT, CBT, and DBT trained and can’t wait to start this journey with you.

“The wound is the place where the Light enters you.” – Rumi
