Heather Montgomery grew up in Saint John, New Brunswick, and learned to enjoy nature and the outdoors during her many summers spent swimming and boating along the Kennebecasis River.
Upon graduating high school, Heather enrolled in studies at the University of Prince Edward Island, earning a Bachelor of Science in Psychology. Heather’s desire to broaden her horizons and gain life experience led her to careers in Information Technology, Human Resources, and Insurance. In 2018, Heather’s enduring passion for mental health brought her back to the pursuit of a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University. Heather completed her studies and became a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) in December 2020.
She uses a variety of evidence-based therapy approaches, including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Acceptance and Commitment (ACT), Self-Compassion, Emotion Regulation, Brainspotting, and Solution-Focused Therapy to establish a bright and hopeful tomorrow. As a strong advocate in positivity and stress reduction, Heather empowers each client in finding effective strategies in dealing with their unique struggles and urges them to reconnect with values and goals most important to them. She believes that good health can be found in maintaining balance within three interconnected realms – Physical, Social, and Emotional. She is interested in how Psychology and a positive attitude influence one’s career success, health, and relationships with others.
Heather is supportive of individuals with numerous presenting problems, including anxiety, depression, insomnia, trauma, life transition, relationship and family issues, insomnia, chronic pain, and grieving. Working collaboratively with each client toward positive growth and personal strength, Heather offers individuals therapy over the phone and online.
When she is not treating clients or reading up on mental health techniques and research, Heather enjoys hiking and cycling with her husband and two children, and training her Portuguese Water Dog puppy, Ember.
We would like to introduce online Psychotherapy to our clinic. If you’re here, perhaps it means that you’re feeling alone, overwhelmed, or unhappy. Possibly you would like to make a change in your life but don’t know where to begin. If you’ve been hurt, it can be difficult to reach out for help and to learn to trust. It would be nice if there was someone that you could speak with who you knew would be on your side and where you can feel safe and non- judged.
