Nova Scotian psychotherapist Amiee Wilson started Thoughtful Changes in early 2021 after completing her master’s degree in counselling psychology the previous autumn.
“My practicum placement involved helping lower-income individuals access mental health support,” recalls Wilson. “It was at a free clinic, and it became obvious to me that we needed more clinics in Nova Scotia as our wait list was very long. In fact, in many cases, there were
individuals that had been waiting for several years to access the public mental health system.”
