Ami Rints, BA, MASc, MA (Psychological Services)

Ami Rints is a PhD Candidate in Clinical Psychology at the University of Waterloo, where her research is focused on understanding how different child and parent factors relate to the experience of parenting stress. Clinically, Ami’s training has focused on providing assessment and intervention to clients ranging from childhood through adulthood, with a particular interest in supporting children, youth, and their families. She has worked in a number of settings including the Centre for Mental Health Research and Treatment at the University of Waterloo, a hospital setting, local private practices, a community mental health setting, and the local school board. Working predominantly from a cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) lens, she takes a collaborative approach to therapy which helps clients to set and learn strategies for achieving meaningful goals. Ami has worked with children, youth, and adults with a wide range of concerns, including behavioural and learning difficulties, developmental disorders, anxiety, and mood-related challenges.
