Candace Putric, MA

Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying)

Hello! My name is Candace and I’m a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying). I am passionate to create a positive therapy experience with my clients. It is important to work together, collaborating, regarding your concerns and struggles. All of us have unique needs and often that includes complex diagnosis, which I will support you with that includes a purpose in building your confidence and building positive experiences for you. 

I have experience in working with ADHD, OCD, Autism, Anxiety, Depression and Borderline Personality Disorder. I can provide confidence building skills to youth, young adults and adults to improve their self-esteem and support for their mental health diagnoses. I am crisis prevention and intervention trained along with knowledge of behavioural support. My approach includes developing multiple strategies for individuals with complex diagnosis, establishing care plans and implementing coping techniques that suits their needs. Set up a consultation with me to begin your healing journey and restore your life balance. Personally, I find time with a nice bath, taking a walk, and spending time with my family as a huge way to help myself.

Are you curious about Candace?

My decision to become a therapist is driven by my childhood where mental wellbeing was always an afterthought. This became my motivation when choosing this career path as I want to make an impact on the importance of normalizing mental health. I have seen the challenges and struggles others have endured and am committed to helping individuals of my community that I am part of.

I usually find my inspiration when I am outdoors whether in my backyard or in the kitchen. It allows my creativity to be at my fullest potential and where I can focus and see things from different perspectives in life.

I regularly practice mindfulness by meditation and self-compassion. I believe that feeding the mind with a positive regard, it allows for a healthy mind set. I have an abundance of love for animals and enjoy walking my dog but also enjoy cuddling with my cat.

I enjoy cooking and baking. One thing I enjoy the most in the kitchen is creating new recipes. Being outdoors is one of my favourite things to do, especially when I am camping or canoeing with my family. A lot of people would describe me as a creative person as I enjoy DIY projects and finding creative ways to express myself through art.

I value client’s strength and vulnerability for seeking therapy. I have seen the commitment in therapy given by my clients as well as their genuineness to learn coping strategies and techniques towards their mental wellbeing. Keeping a positive mindset throughout the sessions is key into seeing success.

Why would a potential client come to Kindred Hope?

I have a unique ability to help guide you through your mental health wellness journey in finding ways to cope with stress, anxiety, and depression through a diverse approach to therapy offering CBT, Narrative, Mindfulness and Solution Focused. I have experience working with individuals with ADHD and neurodivergence.

What are you biggest interests that show a bit about you?

I am fascinated by the biological understanding on how the brain operates and affects mental well-being along with its needs to operate. Exploring new ways to provide unconventional ways to provide therapy.
