Chris Edmonstone

Dr. Edmondstone is especially interested in helping with:

Anxiety & Depression

Resolving past trauma

Navigating Interpersonal  Relationship Difficulties

Identity Development & Life Direction Guidance

Do you find yourself feeling stuck, whether in dissatisfying relationships, weighed down by past trauma, making significant life transitions, or experiencing persistent anxiety or depressed mood? Does it feel like no matter what you do, or how you try to change, it’s the same old story? Many people can’t help but feel frustrated, lost, and hopeless when faced with these kinds of struggles, and don’t know where to turn.

My role is to assist adults who are looking to cope with and navigate the full range of challenges encountered in life. I strive to create an environment in which each person feels understood, accepted and valued; developing an approach to problems that matches each person’s unique and specific needs.

I want to help you get to a place where you can heal from past difficulties, manage unpleasant emotions effectively, and show up as your authentic self within your relationships. My primary goal is empowering you to live a satisfying life, by clarifying unhelpful patterns of thought and coping behaviour, and developing new and healthier ways of thinking and being.

I will be a nonjudgmental guide offering unbiased observations, empathic explanations, and actionable solutions with the goal of improving your mood, relationships, and overall quality of life.

My approach to therapy integrates several research-supported treatment modalities including Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT).

Dr. Edmondstone primarily works in the Burlington clinic while also providing services virtually and in the Oakville clinic.  He received his Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from the University of Windsor. He has worked at the University of Manitoba’s Student Counselling Centre, the Transgender Health Klinic (Winnipeg), Toldo Neurobehavioural Institute in Hotel-Dieu Grace Healthcare (Windsor) and the Canadian Mental Health Association (Windsor).
