Clinic Owner & Registered Psychotherapist

private practice business coaching barrie ontario canada

Hi, I'm Laryssa! I'm a psychotherapist in Barrie, ON who has a passion for mentoring new and aspiring psychotherapists navigate the world of counselling, and helping ambitious entrepreneurs cultivate a thriving private practice that feels authentic to them.

I always knew from a young age that I wanted to be my own boss; I thought being a "business woman" was the coolest thing, and I weirdly enjoyed the administrative behind-the-scene tasks that most people think are boring. My thirst for knowledge and sometimes stubborn "I can do that myself!" attitude, coupled with my passion for psychology, led me choosing a career in private practice.

Upon graduating from my Master's in Counselling Psychology in 2020, I immediately launched my private practice. In fact, I was already building my business before graduation so that I could start right away! I spent countless hours researching and learning how to build a website, best marketing strategies for businesses, networking with other healthcare professionals, and crafting my dream practice.

After just 1 year in private practice, I rebranded from a self-named solo practice and expanded into a group practice- Inner Growth Counselling & Psychotherapy! It has been an exhausting and rewarding journey where I have learned a lot about myself and what it takes to run a successful business. I am still learning, and recognize that I always will be, but believe that I have valuable knowledge and insight to help other like-minded folks thrive in this field!

I've poured a lot of time and energy into cultivating a business that I am proud of and is an extension of my personal core values. I always say, "my business is my baby". I believe it's important as entrepreneurs to get clear on our "why" for deciding to open a business, as it is not for the faint hearted and will be more work than you probably even know. But, it is totally worth it!
