About Melissa Thivierge
I began my journey as a counsellor working as a Child and Youth Counsellor 10 years ago and in doing so, discovered my passion for walking alongside people through their successes and life challenges. This discovery led me to pursue a B.A in psychology from Carleton University and a master’s degree in Counselling Psychology from the University of Ottawa.
I am an integrative practitioner with an orientation that is rooted in attachment theory. While working from an attachment and holistic lens, I also integrate other evidence-based approaches into my work with children, youth, adults, and families depending on the specific needs of each and every individual including: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Art Therapy, Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy, Internal Family Systems, Brainspotting, Family Systems Trauma Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I specialize in attachment disruptions, adoption support and children in care, trauma, ADHD, anxiety, depression, and family support.”
