THERAPY BIOGRAPHY

 

Emily Ameara Mclennan is a Registered Psychotherapist, with the College of Psychotherapy in Ontario Canada. She has a Graduate certification in Art Therapy from the Toronto Art Therapy Institute. 

 

Always called a mirror- able to reflect those around her to be able to truly see themselves in a different light. Seeing every person with empathy, compassion and understanding that their reality is real to them and treating everyone with dignity and respect no matter their mental state.

 

I have been in private practice for  over a year, with 10 years of experience in the mental health field. 

Coming from an anti-racist, anti-oppressive, social justice, equity based framework. With a focus in client focused therapy.
