about-julianneJulianne Maslabey, RP, RMFT

Welcome to Safe Harbour Psychotherapy, where I hope you find a refuge from the storms of your life and a safe place to heal.   My name is Julianne Maslabey and I am the founder of Safe Harbour Psychotherapy.  I too have experienced many of the traumatic losses and issues I now help my clients with.  I know first-hand how hopeless one can feel after a major loss but also how we as human beings have the wonderful capacity to heal from trauma, especially when we are able to connect with a caring other.

I am a Registered Psychotherapist and Registered Marriage and Family Therapist with both the American and Ontario Associations for Marriage & Family Therapy. I hold a Master of Divinity with a major in Counselling and have taken numerous post-graduate training programs in individual psychotherapy.  I have a total of 27 years of experience helping people cope with crises. This includes many years of pastoral care and counselling, working in agency settings, for EAP companies and in private practice.

I have been trained in many therapeutic models such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Solution Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Family Systems Therapy and Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP).  Each one of these models has added valuable insight into my work and informs choices of interventions I use for each client.  My mission is to help clients increase self-awareness and change how they think, feel and act.  I am constantly learning and growing as a therapist by taking part in regular AEDP training programs so that I can incorporate the latest developments in affective neuroscience and attachment theory into my work.

As we work together in a session, I help you experience more positive emotions, rather than just talking about it!  I look forward to meeting you.  I am enriched by each one of my clients in a very special way as I witness the courage and vulnerability that we share together in the journey towards healing.

It takes courage to reach out for help when life is challenging. We all have difficulties at one time or another. The good news is that you don’t have to go through your problems alone. I will provide a safe, supportive and non-judgmental environment where you can discuss your issues openly and honestly while being treated with respect, compassion and sensitivity. Take the first step and call for an appointment today.

In addition to my Masters Degree in Clinical Counselling which included training in Couple Therapy, Family Systems, Domestic Violence and Trauma, I have completed additional training with the Alternatives to Violence Project, Canada as well as training for those who have experienced childhood sexual abuse. Further, my own life experiences have contributed to my belief that learning and growth are part of a lifelong process for each and every one of us.

Welcome. Choosing to work with a therapist is a brave first step on the path to healing – especially during times when you feel stuck or simply not yourself.   Are you…

  • Feeling unappreciated by your partner or in conflict with your partner?

  • burned out at work?

  • Feeling exhausted or tired?

  • Concerned about your substance use or finances?

  • Simply not getting what you want out of work, relationships, and personal growth?

In every life, there is both triumph and turmoil ~  and counselling can be especially useful to grow, cope, heal and find balance during the difficult times.  In a compassionate atmosphere of warmth and acceptance, my approach is supportive, hopeful, and solution-oriented. As a Registered Psychotherapist, I’ve had the honour and privilege of supporting and empowering thousands of people over the last few decades to move confidently in the direction of their dreams.  I am originally from Ontario and have:

  • a Master’s degree in Counselling

  • 25 years of experience providing psychotherapy to individuals and couples

  • counselled within the University, non profit agency, EAP, and private practice settings

  • taught for five years in the University setting as an adjunct faculty member in the Department of Educational Psychology and Counselling at NIU in DeKalb, IL.

Seeking real solutions to real problems – together we will recognize strengths, identify challenges, and develop realistic solutions to regain a sense of hope, purpose, and confidence. I’m very fortunate to have completed advanced clinical training with some pioneers in the field including Dr. Brene Brown, Dr. Tina Brayson, Dr. David Burns, Dr. John Gottman and Dr. William Glasser.

It will be an honour to put my expertise and experience to work for you to assist you in achieving greater happiness and joy in your life, career, and relationships by responding to any of the following challenges:

  • anxiety and depression

  • separation and divorce

  • blended family dynamics

  • parenting and co-parenting

  • abuse and addictions

  • relationship issues

  • assertiveness and self-esteem

  • workplace stress

  • grief and loss
