Marcus Kupila completed his Masters in Counseling Psychology at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE) at the University of Toronto in the Department of Applied Psychology and Human Development. He completed his clinical training at the OISE Psychology Clinic on-campus at the University of Toronto serving the community and student body. During his time there he provided treatment for anxiety, depression, stress, relationship issues, academic concerns, trauma, personality disorders, gender and identity (LGBTQ), dishonesty behaviours, suicide and self-harm, addictions, and marital problems.
Marcus has specialized training in crisis management and helping individuals who experience suicidal ideation as a result of four years of experience at The Distress Centre. His approach is client-centered and empathic, allowing clients to lead the session and the overall direction of therapy because clients are always the experts on themselves and should be in charge of their therapeutic goals. Marcus uses evidence-based approaches including CBT, EFT, Motivational Interviewing, and Brief psychotherapy to help clients reach their goals. He uses these modes of therapy interchangeably by adapting to clients needs in the moment to customize his therapeutic approach in every session.
Marcus is a member of the Canadian Counseling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA), and the Ontario Association of Consultants, Counsellors, Psychometrists and Psychotherapists (OACCPP).
