About Emily Markes

Emily Markes is a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) and earned her Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University. She completed her internship with MyLife counselling under the Supervision of our Clinical Manager Emily Hansen.

Emily completed her BA in Psychology from the University of Guelph, then went on to complete a post graduate certificate in Addictions and Mental Health from Humber College. She is passionate about helping people find balance in their overall life and wellbeing. By working from a person-centred and empathic approach, Emily helps clients feel safe, heard and supported throughout each meeting.

Emily began working in the field with Canadian Addiction Treatment Centres, and then continued on to Stonehenge Therapeutic Community, where she supported individuals to make changes to their substance use, meet their goals, and develop productive coping strategies.

With experience supporting individuals through their recovery, Emily is passionate about working with young adults and adults across a wide range of issues including anxiety, depression, substance use, stress management and emotion regulation, and any life transitions. She uses a strength-based and trauma-informed approached throughout her work to create meaningful and positive alliances with each of her clients.

Emily draws from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Person-Centred Therapy, Mindfulness and Solution-Focused Therapy to provide individualized support for every client. She demonstrates compassion and values fostering a strong therapeutic relationship. Emily understands how difficult it can be to talk about how you’re feeling and she strives to create a space that is safe and nonjudgmental for anyone she works with.

Outside of the office, Emily enjoys spending time on outdoor adventures with her partner of 7 years and their 3 dogs. Other parts of her self-care include yoga, candle-making, and spending time with her family.
