I’m Rory. I am a therapist based in Bedford, Nova Scotia.
I am a client-centered therapist who helps individuals facing a many different challenges. Some of the areas I work in are: stress, life transitions (e.g., graduating university, entering the workforce, career transitions), self-injury, depression, anxiety, strategies for managing ADHD, suicide, and men’s issues.
My Professional Background
My journey in mental health began when I started volunteering with online peer support groups for people who suffered from depression, self-injury, suicidal thoughts, and eating disorders. When I graduated university and finished my internship, I worked with an on-demand therapy platform for 5 years.
I graduated from Saint Mary’s University with an honours degree in psychology. My honours’ thesis focused on the influence of family history in adolescent girls. My directed research study focused on perfectionism in undergraduate honours students in university.
I have been registered with the Canadian Professional Counsellors Association since 2015 and the Nova Scotia College of Counselling Therapists since 2022.
