Patrick Turcotte BSW, MSW, RSW

Social Worker

Patrick is a registered clinical social worker with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW). He has completed a Bachelor and Master of Social Work degrees from the University of Ottawa and Western University, respectively. Patrick has extensive experience working with at-risk youth, teens, and young adults, as well as their immediate families and friends, and takes pride in creating and nurturing an open, safe, trusting, and welcoming environment in every session.

Patrick values the use of holistic wellness strategies, and integrates mindfulness, meditation, thought-recognition and challenging, curiosity, and introspection in his sessions. Recognizing that every person is unique and the therapeutic process is a very personal experience, Patrick is highly flexible and adaptable towards each individual’s journey; plainly put, your goals are his goals. He has a keen interest in collaboratively “looking beneath the surface” when exploring areas of personal challenge, and in taking the smallest possible step(s) in the desired direction, to live healthy and satisfying lives. 

He has training and practical experience in the following areas:

  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT)
  • Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT)
  • Brief Intervention for School Clinicians (BRISC) 

Areas of practice include:

  • Mood disorders (e.g anxiety and depression)
  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
  • Executive Functioning 
  • Life skills
  • Healthy habit-building
  • Conflict resolution
  • Interpersonal relationships
  • Family counselling
  • Parent coaching sessions

In his spare time, Pat enjoys spending time with his family and friends, his adorable and rambunctious pup June, golfing and exercising. He loves trying new things and is a very active “doer”! Pat’s understanding of work-life balance and taking “control of the controllables” helps him navigate the beautiful mysterious package of life, and he appreciates his quiet downtime and R&R as much as his energizing, social time.  Pat is naturally curious and enjoys discovering new ways to keep learning about and through life.  We all have amazing strengths and qualities, and we deserve to use them and make them shine in the most fulfilling ways. Let’s connect, let’s talk and let’s do some life together.
