Michaela Psychotherapy for You Canada

Michaela Weaver

Registered Social Worker

Hi, I’m Michaela! I am a recent MSW graduate from the University of Windsor and had the pleasure of
completing my last practicum with Psychotherapy for You Canada! I also hold an Honours Bachelor of
Behavioural Psychology. I have spent the last four years working in acute inpatient psychiatric care for
children and youth ages 5-17 and feel that I have a good grasp on some of the most pressing issues youth are currently facing. I believe every human being is unique, there is no “one-size-fits-all” approach, and each person deserves to seek counseling with a therapist who tailors their approach to what fits the client best. I am extremely
passionate about helping people through some of life’s most stressful and challenging situations and
developing useful skills to do so. I firmly believe that compassion and empathy are the cornerstones for
developing positive working relationships with individuals. Additionally, I believe that therapy should not be an added stressor to one’s already busy life, rather a collaborative approach that is beneficial for each client. I can’t wait to connect and figure out how I can best support you!
