MICHAEL LEROUX

Psychologist

As team lead, and a Registered Psychologist since 1997, my focus has always been to work in a non-profit agency where there is access for all. I work with families, individuals, couples, children and youth.  My greatest teachers are those who sit in my office. Their talents, abilities and skills in facing their problems-in-living have taught me a great deal in how to sit with and help them as they travel their healing journey with trauma, failed relationships, anxiety, depression and childhood issues.

Provisional Psychologist

My personal and professional outlook is open, inclusive and adaptive to each individual, with values of unconditional acceptance, empathy and sincerity.  Each person and each session are unique and yet always entirely relatable in their humanness.  Working with your strengths, struggles and insights, we will collaboratively deepen our understanding of where you’re at, where you’ve been and where you’d like to go.  Some of the orientations with greatest influence in my practice include Compassionate Inquiry, Person-Centered Care and Internal Family Systems.
