Bio & Credentials
Dr. Jennifer Boyce, C.Psych., Founder
I am a Registered Psychologist in Ontario and Coach with over 15 years of professional experience working in clinical and organizational settings. I partner with people, like you, to help them design and live powerful lives. I have provided counselling, coaching, and assessments to clients in employee assistance consulting firms, university counselling centres, and community mental health centres. As a manager at Morneau Shepell, I led a team of 3 supervisors and 30 front-line clinicians. My training and experience with people diverse in ethnicity, age, and position has equipped me to be sensitive to individual differences and offer a customized approach. Your issues are unique and I treat them as such.
My roots are in counselling people on issues such as couples and relationship issues, mindfulness, career development, work-life balance, midlife crisis, self-esteem, and communication. In addition, I have extensive experience conducting comprehensive assessments for the purposes of addressing motor vehicle accidents, career development, and relationships.
I am a member of The College of Psychologists of Ontario. Therefore, all client issues are handled with strict confidentiality and the highest ethical standards. I hold an Honours B.A. degree in Psychology from McMaster University and a Masters in Counseling and a doctoral degree in Counseling Psychology from Arizona State University. I am a member of the Ontario Psychological Association, Canadian Psychological Association, and the American Psychological Association.
When I am not practicing psychology, I am likely exploring the cultures of Thailand, China, Spain, Italy, or Barbados. In fact, almost any destination on the globe feeds my desire for adventure and growth. I have a particular interest in Asian history and Latin languages. I define health very broadly to include mental and spiritual balance in addition to physical fitness. In fact, the origins of the word health includes the word wholeness, thus connoting a balance and integration of all of these energies. I apply mindfulness to everyday living and have regular meditation and yoga practices. In addition, I sit on the board of a mediation and healing centre. My most prized possession… any Apple product which plays music.

We are part of the community
Since 2011, I have been a member of Friends of the Heart, a meditation and healing centre. It is a charitable organization that has been committed to helping people develop ways to live with a compassionate heart and a clear mind for over 25 years. We share tools from predominantly eastern traditions that turn the mind towards peace. In my role on the Board, I teach a mindfulness class and assist in organizing our annual fundraiser, Day of World Peace.
