I look forward to listening to your unique story and working collaboratively with you to find your inner strength, confidence, and resilience.
My experience as a Mental Health Nurse with hospitalized individuals has allowed me to work with many people experiencing depression, anxiety, grief, substance use, and life transitions.
For individuals, I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) to empower clients and reframe their thinking.
For couples, I use a blend of the Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) so couples can learn to communicate more effectively and understand each other more meaningfully.
Registered Psychotherapist (RP) & Registered Nurse (RN)
I hold a Master’s of Arts in Counselling Psychotherapy from Yorkville University and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Ontario Institute of Technology.
Hello! I am Yasmin Goldie and when I’m not counseling, I’m out hiking in the woods with my dog, working on my graphic arts, or writing all kinds of things from blogs to short stories. I also have a love of British comedy shows and murder mysteries!
We all have a unique life journey, filled with trials and tribulations and mine has been no exception. I have been married for over 33 years and understand that relationships take hard work, understanding, and sometimes a little CPR.
I have raised a family and know that parenting also has its challenges.
When I lost someone close to me due to mental health, I felt compelled to help others with their inner struggles. I turned grief into growth. I attended university as a mature adult and became a mental health nurse. This was the point in my life I knew I had found my calling. I wanted to learn more and my quest for knowledge led me to achieve my master’s degree in counseling psychotherapy (MACP).
Life can be compared to a heavy backpack that weighs a person down. I love unpacking those burdensome loads and rifling through the contents to find the gems, the strengths, and the tools a person needs to grow, "turn-the-mind", reframe thoughts, and find peace and acceptance.
