About Leticia

I am currently a student completing my last semester in the Master of Education in Counselling Psychology at the University of Toronto – OISE. I am also completing the Practicum component of my program at ReNu Counselling and Psychotherapy. In addition to my studies in Counselling Psychology, I hold a Master of Arts in Professional Behavior Analysis from the Florida Institute of Technology, a Post Graduate Certificate in Autism and Behaviour Analysis Technology from George Brown College, and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Trent University. Lastly, I am a Board Certified Behaviour Analyst credentialed by the Behaviour Analysis Certification Board.

Numerous experiences, personal and professional, have led me to develop a deep interest and passion for helping others. I strongly believe in the importance of mental health as the driving force for overall wellness. I am interested in supporting others as they achieve their highest potential by moving through challenging thoughts, emotions, and events while shifting towards a more fulfilled life driven by their values.

In my experience as a Latin American immigrant from Paraguay, I witnessed the need for accessible and safe spaces for immigrants to share their stories as they arrive and grow in their new home. As a therapist working within the Autism community, I have worked with and witnessed the need for further supports for individuals in the Autism Spectrum as they develop independence and navigate their communities and relationships; family members and caregivers as they support their children through diagnostic and post diagnosis phases; and therapists/teachers/service providers as they deliver intensive services without the proper resources and supports. Working with Autism diagnosis in Indigenous Communities in Thunder Bay has allowed me to support families through various challenges as they seek services for their children. As the family member of an Olympian, I have observed the incredible amount of work (mental, emotional, and physical) required to achieve an elite performance level. I look forward to continuing supporting the communities I have lived in and served. 

“When each of us learns how to put our own mind on a leash, and become more able to open up, show up, and move forward toward what we deeply care about, we shine a light into the darkness that helps others do the same. There is a good word for it: the word is love” – Steve Hayes.
