About Landen Dobsi
Landen completed his Master’s Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counselling from Liberty University. He is now a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario and a full time therapist at MyLife.
Clients would describe Landen as genuinely warm, reflective, and compassionate. As a person who is extremely easy to talk to, Landen can connect one-on-one with a range of people struggling with anxiety, anger management, stress, depression, relationship issues, and self-worth.
Landen’s belief in the healing power of caring relationships stems from his early experiences volunteering with the homeless, at men’s shelters, and at nursing homes where he regularly provided compassionate listening and support to residents there.
As a therapist, Landen takes a person-centred approach in his counselling which focuses on helping his clients clarify what it is they are feeling and needing in their lives in a safe and non-judgmental space. With this knowledge in hand, he helps clients assert their boundaries, improve their communication, and develop the coping strategies needed to improve their resilience in the face of life’s challenges.
Landen especially enjoys working with young adults and students. He’s come to appreciate the unique challenges they face such as school stress, relationship and family demands, and identity issues. Landen is able to guide his younger clients through the anxiety, worry, self-doubt, and emotional crises that can emerge along the way. Thanks to his experience with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Emotion Focused Therapy, Landen strikes a balance between helping his clients challenge their negative thoughts while also teaching them new ways to manage strong emotions when they come up.
In his spare time, Landen enjoys playing hockey, running, golfing, fishing and being outdoors. He also enjoys spending quality time with his family and friends as part of building and maintaining meaningful relationships in his own life.
