Who We Are.
Willow Group is a small, close-knit team of psychologists and psychotherapists, founded by Trudy James, Ph.D. and Dr. Kerri Wood. We met in graduate school thirty years ago at the University of Waterloo and have been friends ever since. Our friendship has grown over time and through graduate degrees, children, cross country moves, and almost ten years of working alongside each other in private practice.
We created Willow Group in 2022 to include other friends and colleagues we’ve met along the way. Our backgrounds and experiences are diverse, but we all share a love for the work that we do. While our team members are trained in many different approaches, our work is grounded in the science of development, relationships and attachment.
Willow Group is located in a beautiful century home in the heart of Uptown Waterloo. We have designed our space to look and feel like a warm and inviting home. We feel fortunate to work within our own community, doing work that we love. We can’t wait to meet you!
