Ami Rints is a PhD Candidate in Clinical Psychology and is currently finishing her doctorate at the University of Waterloo. She has successfully completed her residency treating individuals across the lifespan – including both adults and children. Clinically, Ami has extensive training in helping people manage anxiety (e.g., generalized anxiety & worry, OCD, social anxiety), depression, interpersonal difficulties, and problems associated with ADHD and executive-functioning. Ami has garnered a breadth of relevant experience working across 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 organization, and a local school board. Working predominantly from a cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) lens, she takes a collaborative approach to treatment which helps clients to learn strategies for achieving personally-meaningful goals. Towards this aim, Ami further uses elements of emotion-focused therapy (EFT) as well as helping individuals develop more compassion for themselves. All of her clinical work at Think Waterloo Psychology is supervised by Dr. Jeffrey Paulitzki, Ph.D., C.Psych.
