B.A., B.Ed., M.Ed., Registered Social Worker/Psychotherapist


Adam Terpstra profile photo

I completed a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from University of Victoria in 2009, a Bachelor of Education in Social Sciences from University of Victoria in 2013, and a Master of Education in Adult Counselling and Psychotherapy in 2016 from University of Toronto, OISE campus. I am a Registered Social Worker (RSW), a Registered Psychotherapist (RP), a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC), and a registered teacher in British Columbia, Ontario (OCT), and the Yukon Territory. I am a Certified Member of the Ontario Association of Mental Health Practitioners (OAMHP) and a voluntary member of the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF).

Growing up in Prince Edward County and living in mid-to-large cities across Canada, I have worked with a variety of populations ranging from hard-to-reach inner city clients, adult survivors of childhood trauma, and the LGBTQ2 community, which has fostered a sincere understanding of the various daily life challenges and struggles.

Practicing from an eclectic therapeutic model, drawing from such modalities as Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Internal Family Systems (IFS) model, and Schema Therapy, the focus of my clinical experience has been directed toward the age range of 21 – 85 with presenting issues relating to depression and general anxiety, childhood physical, psychological, and sexual trauma, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), and gender/sexuality-related issues.
