General Treatment/Therapy Approach 

Ms. Wonders’ purpose as a therapist has been to reduce suffering and help individuals develop a greater sense of confidence, connection, and security in their world. This involves deep analysis on her end, as she works with clients to uncover the often complex and contributing factors that are impacting their day-to-day lives.  Ms. Wonders holds a safe space, so that she and her clients can work collaboratively to identify and address factors impacting them. Through increased insight and reflection in the process of therapy, individuals experience growth in how they think, feel and interact with the world. 


Ms. Wonders provides therapy for a wide range of issues, including anxiety, depression, low confidence/self-esteem, as well as challenges with behaviour, social skills, and interpersonal relationships. Because each person has unique needs, Ms. Wonders employs an eclectic approach in therapy, meaning that she often draws from various therapeutic modalities such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Psychodynamic approaches, Transactional Analysis, Sandtray Therapy, and Internal Family Systems. 


Ms. Wonders’ additional training in formal assessment (e.g., psychoeducational assessments) has broadened her perspective within the therapeutic role, as she has awareness around a variety of neurodevelopmental and cognitive profiles that may contribute to the individual's psychological, social-emotional and learning presentation. She is also specialized in interpreting psycho-educational assessments and developing interventions/treatment plans that are informed by assessment outcomes and diagnoses.

In therapy Ms. Wonders may also provide coaching in various areas to improve day-to-day functioning. For example, this can involve: 

  • Learning to cope with and compensate for executive function challenges, including difficulties with attention, memory, working memory, planning and organization; executive function problems are frequently highlighted in the ADHD population, but is not solely experienced by those with a diagnosis

  • Identifying strategies to improve literacy skills (e.g., in reading and writing) and developing study strategies unique to the individual’s strengths

  • Identifying and addressing emotional factors and thinking orientations (e.g., perfectionism, anxiety) that are contributing to procrastination and other academic/work performance difficulties

  • Social skill development to increase confidence and comfort with socializing and communicating with others
