Who We Are

JuniperTree is here to help! Launched in 2009, JuniperTree is committed to making psychotherapy an effective and nourishing experience. With a focus on approachability, realistic changes towards clear goals, and a collaborative process, we help navigate tough experiences.

Our psychotherapists work with individuals (including kids 8+ and teens), couples, and families through a vast array of concerns.

JuniperTree provides highly individualized treatment with interventions supported by science, and refreshing authenticity to make the whole therapy experience a little easier. We are committed to offering an in-person office, in the belief that there is a unique benefit to working together “live and in person”. We also offer online appointments to allow for continuity of care or for those who prefer an online format – what works best for you will work for us.

Andy Lundy

In person and online appointments available.

Andy Lundy,
Registered Psychotherapist

Andy Lundy is a Registered Psychotherapist with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO). He offers therapeutic support to individuals, couples, and families, including kids 8+ and teens, both in person and online. A founding partner at JuniperTree Psychotherapy Services, Andy has a passion for serving the community of Newmarket, Ontario, and the surrounding area, with the goal of providing space for all to be heard and valued. He has great respect for those seeking therapy, and considers it an honour to have the opportunity to work together.

Andy holds a Bachelor’s degree in Counselling from Heritage College (2000), as well as a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Providence College (2003). Since 2003, Andy has been practicing full time in a diverse array of environments, including community agencies, private assessment and treatment centres, mobile treatment support teams, as well as private practice. In total, Andy has over 20 years of experience providing psychotherapeutic intervention. Rooted in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), using a narrative approach, his work with clients is eclectic in nature – Andy includes techniques from various treatment modalities, incorporating evidence-based practices. As each individual, couple, and family bring different needs, Andy’s approach is adaptive to ensure the best possible client care.

Strongly empathetic, Andy was drawn to therapy to assist those challenged by their circumstances. Always the optimist, he works hard to highlight the positive, without minimizing the difficulties his clients are experiencing. His sense of humour comes through as part of the non-judgemental, relaxed, and comfortable therapeutic environment he and his clients value whilst working together to achieve growth, healing, and overall betterment.

When not at JuniperTree, chances are high Andy will be in a local gym with his two kids, either playing or coaching basketball. He and his wife spend as much time together as possible, getting outside to explore the outdoors whenever and wherever they can, often with their dog Charles in tow.

Madelaine Ahlberg

In person and online sessions available. Client age 8+.

Madelaine Ahlberg,
Registered Psychotherapist

Madelaine is a Registered Psychotherapist offering individual and family therapy, supporting kids, teens, and adults through a wide variety of concerns both in person and online. A founding partner at JuniperTree Psychotherapy Services, she is particularly experienced in working with body image & disordered eating, anxiety, depression and emotional regulation. She deeply values the honour to be welcomed into peoples’ lives, and to walk alongside them as they navigate (often tough) experiences.

Madelaine earned a Specialized Honours Bachelor’s of Arts degree from York University in Psychology (2006), and a Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology from the University of Calgary (2008).

Madelaine has 15 years of clinical experience in a variety of environments including in community settings, non-profit organizations, and in private practice. With a diverse education in therapeutic modalities, Madelaine’s interventions are guided by evidence-based practices. Her approach uses a Narrative framework drawing heavily on Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) strategies, areas in which she pursues extensive, on-going education. Madelaine works from a strength based and trauma-informed stance, based on a uniquely individualized, client-centered collaborative model that approaches each person as the expert of their own lives.

Madelaine is deeply compassionate; an eternal optimist with a hint of dark humour, which shapes her therapeutic approach. You can expect a comfortable, non-judgemental therapy environment where clients can explore concerns, heal, and grow.

When she’s out of the office, Madelaine can probably be found up on a horse, or trying to convince her husband and two daughters to come for a hike in the forest. She can always count on her dog Pedro to join her.
