Joelle Willett, Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) (she/her)
Clinical Psychotherapist - Virtual and In-Office availability
Currently accepting individual, couples, and sex therapy clients (18+)
I am passionate about creating a safe and open space for people to explore and address themes of importance to them. I believe everyone should have a place to discuss what is important to them in a warm, welcoming and empathetic environment, free from judgement. My interest lies in sex therapy, and I desire to cultivate a safe space for clients to discuss and explore their sexuality and sex lives freely.
I am drawn to using narrative and emotion focused therapy approaches through a systemic lens that allows people to connect with themselves and others to discuss their story. I work from a client-centered stance that is led by curiosity – I am open to tailoring the therapeutic experience to each client and honoring their individuality.
I have experience in supporting clients facing depression, anxiety, negative thinking, low self-esteem, romantic relationship concerns, familial concerns, fear of rejection and abandonment, life transitions, those facing medical concerns, and those facing sexual concerns.
Before joining the team at SL Psychotherapy and Wellness, I completed an undergraduate degree in psychology, where I completed a thesis reviewing microaggressions faced by LGBTQ+ youth. I have completed a master's degree in Counselling and Spirituality with a focus on individuals, couples and families through Saint Paul University. I am currently taking training on complex trauma to expand my skillset. In my spare time I enjoy the outdoors, spending time with friends, and dancing.
