Meet the team
Dr. Lindsey Forbes, C. Psych
I take a strengths-based, compassionate approach to my work with clients and am passionate about helping others to better understand who they really are, what they really need, and to ultimately live their best life, whatever that might look like. In the practice, I provide sport psychology services to athletes and teams to optimize performance, evidence-based programs to enhance health and support lifestyle change, as well as mindfulness-based interventions for stress reduction, eating, and physical activity. I also offer educational and career assessments for clients of all ages to help them gain insight into their strengths and needs, and a clearer path toward their optimal performance.
Stephanie Nevill, M.A., C. Psych. Assoc.
I am a Registered Psychological Associate (CPO #5260) providing counselling/therapy and educational assessments within the practice. I aim to make clients feel as comfortable and as safe as possible so that your work together is as effective as possible. I know the scariest step is often the first one you make to reach out for help. After that, you can exhale (at least a little bit), because you will have made a healthy choice in asking for support - and that’s a huge step!
Sarah Ouellette, M. Sc., C.Psych.Assoc.
I provide therapy and assessment services in the practice and am a registered Psychological Associate with the College of Psychologists of Ontario (CPO; Reg.#7166). I provide educational assessments and therapy for teens and adults. I hold a M.Sc. in Clinical Psychology from Western University and completed all coursework and clinical training toward my PhD. I have worked in the practice since 2015.

I represented Australia in Rowing for many years, and know first hand the highs and lows of sport and the importance of effective mental strategies to support performance.
