Janice Mae Clarke, RP, MA
I am not a stranger to facing difficult life transitions. As a teenager, I suffered the loss of my mother and as an adult, the pain of divorce. It is important to remember that loss and failure are not what define us but can become a catalyst for personal growth.
I have found significant meaning in parenting my two daughters. My daily work as a therapist, helping people in our community, is also very rewarding. However, as my young adult children move forward in life I experience both feelings of delight and sadness as I transition into the empty nest stage of life. Each life transition has challenged my own search for meaning and purpose.
One of the benefits of therapy is the bond that occurs between therapist and client. The strength of this bond will directly reflect in your progress and healing during therapy. When you find the right therapist and develop a trusting connection it gives you a safe place and an objective perspective that differs from your relationship with friends and family. I look forward to the opportunity to become your therapist.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist (RP) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) and hold a Masters of Arts (MA) in Counselling Psychology. I have additional specialized training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) with Sue Johnson & Gail Palmer, Loss and Grief with Doug Smith, working with Life Transitions, Shame, and Anxiety.
