My Story

Frank Pew, a seasoned Registered Social Worker and Psychotherapist, commands expertise in adolescent, transitional-aged youth, and adult mental health, drawing from 15 years of diverse experience across Canadian and American outpatient mental health settings. Commencing his career in crisis intervention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he later steered the development of a significant DBT-informed treatment program at the Canadian Mental Health Association in Waterloo and Wellington. As a DBT specialist in Guelph, Frank offers individual, group, and parent therapy, consulting, and comprehensive DBT trainings to local institutions. Proficient in evidence-based modalities, including DBT, CBT, and Exposure Therapy, he brings extensive experience aiding trauma survivors and individuals with various mental health challenges, advocating for client-centred care that balances acceptance and transformation. Rooted in a quest for meaningful change, Frank fosters self-awareness, resilience, and lasting behavioural shifts in his clients, shaping lives towards purpose and significance. Outside his practice, this New Jersey native turned Guelph resident enjoys cherished moments with family, indulging in forest walks with his dogs. Frank embodies dedication and expertise, guiding individuals towards fulfilling, purpose-driven lives.
