Ruth Godoy (she/her)

As a mom of two girls, a prenatal genetic counsellor, and a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying), I know that being a parent is one of the most challenging and life-changing experiences ever. You are trying to keep your family together while balancing relationships, work and household responsibilities, and your rapidly changing sense of self. The challenges can be exacerbated to the next level if you also experienced a high-risk pregnancy, pregnancy loss, birth trauma, medical complications, or struggled to become a parent. 

I have undergone specialized training in perinatal mental health and perinatal grief and loss. My 10+ years of experience as a prenatal genetic counsellor, where I have worked with the best at Mt. Sinai Hospital in downtown Toronto, also comes in handy. I have endured and healed from postpartum mental health challenges, especially with my first daughter, born at the beginning of the pandemic. I believe in an open, respectful, non-judgemental therapeutic space. Just come as you are and breathe.

Melissa Lindsay (she/her)


Hi!  I am Melissa Lindsay (she/her), Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying), thrilled to be completing a Practicum Placement with Perinatal Wellbeing Ontario this year.  I am grateful to have the privilege of working with perinatal populations (those trying to get pregnant, currently pregnant, or postpartum) as I truly feel the journey into parenthood requires a community. 


Before embarking on a Masters of Arts in Counselling Psychology, I spent a lot of time working on mountains and rivers and with babies, kids and teens.  But, my fascination with how humans connect and communicate, where we come from, where we choose to go and how we best support each other pulled me to the field of mental health. 


My intention to focus on youth mental health shifted, when I had my own personal battle with postpartum anxiety.  That experience not only rocked my boat, but opened my eyes to the limited options for birthing parents in Ontario.  My recovery left me both grateful for the support I did receive, but eager to increase and improve perinatal mental health opportunities.


Aside from connecting with others, I have a passion for the outdoors, art, journaling and music.  My personal mental health tools include mindfulness, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and acceptance commitment therapy (ACT), which are themes I will bring into our work together, if they also suit you.  I look forward to collaborating and developing strategies with you, as we strengthen your mental health toolbox.

Kate Love (she/her)


Hi, I am Kate Love. Motherhood rocked my world. From the moment I found out I was entering motherhood, I began to navigate change and loss. As a mother-to-be of two at once, my expectations of “how things would go” went out the window. At the same time, I navigated the devastation of losing my own mother. I both created and lost my family at the same time. I had to hold multiple feelings and experiences at once. I know this is a common and tricky experience in parenthood that I continue to juggle. 


In my practice, I want to support other parents riding the roller coaster of parenthood, including fertility, navigating pregnancy loss and a wide range of other experiences. My mom called these the “vicissitudes of life.” I have a special interest in providing support around grief and loss and exploring all the ways those themes show up during the perinatal, postnatal period and beyond. 


My therapy practice is eclectic, person-centred, trauma-informed, and adapted to meet each of my client's individual needs. My goal is to provide support, bear witness and create spaces for clients to process the messiness of being human.

Rajvinder Kaur (she/they)


Hi! I’m Rajvinder (she/they) and am honoured for the opportunity to work with you as you navigate this period of personal exploration and growth. As a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying), my approach is non-authoritarian, relational, and casual; you are the expert on yourself, and I trust you have the innate strength and resources to create the life you want. This comes from a lifetime of witnessing strength and resilience through countless unexpected life challenges. 

My transition to parenthood was one of the hardest times of my life and inspired me to become a midwife. I have always valued holistic care and hoped to contribute to a gentler transition for families. I pivoted to study psychotherapy after developing a disabling health condition, guided by my commitment to holistic healthcare. 

As a BIPOC cis-presenting woman who has navigated the bicultural experience as a child of immigrants and identity issues related to personal growth, changing roles, and life circumstances, I understand how overwhelming it can be to manage the different thoughts and emotions that come up. My aim is to create a brave space where you feel comfortable being vulnerable and exploring all the different parts of yourself.
