Cynthia Ritchie

Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) (She/Her)

Cynthia is passionate about helping people build resilience and cope with life’s ups and downs.
She believes in working collaboratively with clients and tailoring each session to meet their unique needs. She values acceptance, creativity, confidentiality, safety, and sometimes even humour. Cynthia works with clients who face challenges related to trauma, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, interpersonal challenges, work issues, coping skills, school, stress, and suicidal ideation.

To help her clients meet their goals and reach their potential, Cynthia draws upon various evidence-based therapeutic modalities, including Narrative Therapy, Supportive Counselling, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), and trauma-focused interventions, as well as incorporating self-compassion and mindfulness. Cynthia’s biracial upbringing (Chinese/Scottish) in Canada has made her appreciate culturally sensitive therapy, and she strives to make her practice LGBTQ+ friendly.

Cynthia holds a Master of Arts Degree in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University and is a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). She offers teletherapy, with weekday, evening, and weekend appointments available.

At the Resiliency Clinic, she provides English services to individuals 18 and over and has an interest in working with youth and university students.
