Andrea Foster

Registered Psychotherapist


My name is Andrea Foster, and I am a counsellor at Blue Oaks Counselling and Wellness with a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology (MACP) from Yorkville University. I joined the Blue Oaks team as an intern in 2021. My educational journey also includes an Honours Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Biology from Wilfrid Laurier University and a diploma in paramedicine from Conestoga College. 

In my career as a paramedic, I have had the privilege of walking alongside people during some of life’s most challenging and intimate moments. I have witnessed the transformative power of courage, inner strength, resiliency, and community support. My goal is to cultivate an inclusive environment, foster self-discovery, and nurture clients’ strengths to expand their inner resources. I believe in a holistic, individually tailored, and evidence-based approach.
