Carla Bertolin-Siegmund, RP
Registered Psychotherapist and Counselor

I am a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Pscyhotherapists of Ontario and a Registered Professional Counselor (RPC) practicing a form of integrative or Holistic therapy, drawing on a wide range of therapeutic methods based on humanistic insights to help individuals recognize their strengths, creativity, choice and growth. My orientation is mostly client-centered and practice within the psychodynamic modality of therapy. I am a graduate of Transformational Arts College of Holistic and Spiritual Training (TAC) from the Spiritual Psychotherapy program in 2010. I am a member of the Canadian Professional Counselor's Association (CPCA) and the Canadian Humanistic and Transpersonal Association (CHATA). 

I have a deep passion for the work I do with my clients and feel that my journey to becoming a psychotherapist has been in process my whole life! I started my career training as a Registered Massage Therapist knowing at a fairly young age I really wanted to work with people in a healing and therapeutic environment. In my work as a RMT I started to become aware of the correlation of physical pain and health to mental and emotional issues and well-being. I learned a lot about myself and the human experience through my interactions and relationships with my massage clients. It was through these interactions that my path lead me to learn about the human energy system and so I found myself taking courses in the holistic field of chakras, vibrational healing and energetic therapies. I studied and practiced meditation, mindfulness, and spiritual studies for a few years and my path organically lead me to the Spiritual Psychotherapy program at TAC. My thirst to understand myself and others on all levels mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. I began my own personal psychotherapy while I was involved in my energy studies as my inner world and consciousness were changing and transforming. My therapy and self-exploration shifted as I began the psychotherapy program and have been a true life changing experience. I continue to partake in my own personal journey through therapy and through clinical supervision as my life and career continue to progress and grow!

I have a profound understanding and compassion for the work it takes to go on a journey to healing and Self-Awareness, and have been witness to the shift and growth it can have. I believe true health is not just about the physical body, but about wellness of our mind, spirit and emotions. Because our deepest humanity resides in our Spirit!
