Wendi Woo, M.A., C. Psychological Associate
Registered Psychological Associate
Member of the College of Psychologists of Ontario
I am a Clinical Psychological Associate who has been providing psychological services to adults living with a range of difficulties and diagnoses including anxiety, mood, and substance use disorders, as well as the aftereffects of trauma exposure for more than 25 years. As a Psychological Associate registered for autonomous practise by the College of Psychologists of Ontario, in addition to offering psychotherapy, my practice includes engaging in diagnostic assessment.
I started my career as a generalist at the Homewood Health Centre in Guelph, Ontario, focusing on the diagnosis and treatment of mood and anxiety disorders. I later moved to the Program for Traumatic Stress Recovery and concentrated on the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder, an area that continues to be a significant portion of my case work today. In 2009 I expanded my scope of practice by joining the Addiction Medicine Service at Homewood Health and became the Clinical Manager of the service in 2013.
I also have considerable experience working with First Responders. With this population, in addition to helping them cope with operational stress injuries (OSIs), there is also a focus on building resilience for future encounters, or for those recently released from service, emotionally transitioning to civilian life.
My training is in cognitive-behavioural therapy and I also incorporate elements of motivational interviewing, dialectal behaviour therapy, exposure therapy, and solution focused therapy into my practice. In addition, I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
Referrals & Fees:
I welcome both self-referrals as well as referrals from other health care providers.
Fees for individual psychotherapy sessions are $120 per session. Diagnostic assessment fees vary according to type of psychodiagnostic assessment needed. Payment is required at the time of each session, either by cash, cheque or e-transfer. Most extended health care plans cover in full or in part services provided by members of the College of Psychologists of Ontario. It is recommended that you check with your insurance company to determine the extent to which your extended health care benefits plan covers psychological services.
