Jonathan Danson
Ph.D., C.Psych. — Psychologist & Clinical Director


Jon’s dedication to clinical excellence and innovation led him to Remedy, where he is both a psychologist and the Clinical Director. With his clients, he works from the belief that insight into the self promotes actions that are fundamental to the change process. His approach is primarily cognitive-behavioural, and he collaborates with clients to build trusting relationships, set specific goals, foster self-understanding, and develop skills that create movement towards desired outcomes. Jon helps clients address a wide variety of concerns such as those related to mental health (e.g., anxiety, depression), self-esteem, relationships, work/school functioning, and self-discovery. He has particular expertise in treating trauma and the issues that follow from it. His practice is inclusive and he welcomes everyone without judgment.

Jon has made a point in his career to work with clients across many different settings and life circumstances. He has worked in private practice, executive health clinics, as well as with the St. Michael’s Hospital Family Health Team. He also led the development, staff training and evaluation of the Outpatient Traumatic Stress Clinic at Ontario Shores Centre for Mental Health Sciences. Along the way, Jon earned his certification as a Cognitive Processing Therapy Quality-Rated provider and as an Interpersonal Psychotherapist. He has taken a special interest in the way psychology practices are organized and run and, as Clinical Director, helps Remedy to constantly innovate and grow.
