Accepting new clients...Have you reached your limit in pain/stress/worry? Are you growing more concerned about your relationship with alcohol and/or drugs? Or are you worried about the alcohol or drug use of someone you love and you aren't sure what you are 'supposed' to do or not do. Are you starting to realize that maybe you "don't got this", and that you need some help? Patterns of unhealthy or unhelpful behaviours developed over time CAN be changed; coping with trauma and anxiety IS possible. This can be a tough and confusing time, but reaching out for help indicates that you have hope...now it's time to build on that hope.

Please note, as of September 15, 2023 I have moved to Suite 502, 933 17th Ave. S.W., Calgary AB T2T 5R6. Relationships have different seasons and cycles. Challenges can arise however when great sex (or any intimacy at all) is a distant memory, communication becomes stuck, and a feeling of closeness is longed for again. These are all signs that a different approach is needed to end the frustration and created a renewed aliveness. The desire for intimacy, to feel connected, and to matter are key aspects of who we are as human beings.

Hi there! My name is Rebecca and I'm a counsellor who works with adults in varying populations in their journey through self-evolution and empowerment. I'm especially passionate about working with first responders and the LGBTQ+ community. Being someone who identifies as queer as well as the offspring of a long line of first responders, I'm aware of the many hardships and barriers that exist on a daily basis for those belonging to these communities.

Are you overwhelmed by your situation? Sometimes dealing with the present moment feels heavy when our past adds to the difficulties. Our thoughts, emotions, and even body sensations can weigh us down and make us feel hopeless. You may have tried different strategies to make things better, and maybe they haven’t worked well. We know you are doing the best you can. Sometimes people need a bit of professional guidance. We believe that once trauma and limiting beliefs are cleared from the past, it’s easier to deal with the present. When you can connect to that bright genuine strong part of yourself, it is easier for you to handle life.

So many of us can relate to the experience of feeling stuck. Maybe we've been hurt by loved ones and struggle to feel a sense of trust and connectedness. Some of us feel caught in patterns that aren't serving us, such as anger, racing thoughts, perfectionism, or self-criticism. Intense emotions may overwhelm and confuse us, causing us to spiral or lash out at others. Despite our best efforts and intentions, we may find ourselves unable to change these destructive patterns. We want to stop feeling overwhelmed and out of control. We want to feel understood, accepted, more balanced emotionally and secure with others.

Female Counsellors

Does it matter what gender my therapist is?

In general, this is not an important factor, as there is no relationship between a therapist’s gender and their efficacy. Some clients, however, prefer to see therapists of a particular gender, whether due to their own past experiences with men and women, or ingrained beliefs about how people of different genders think and behave. Exploring the roots of such preferences and considering what one wants to address in therapy can help someone determine whether their therapist’s gender truly matters to them.

Should I see a female therapist?

Many people—not just women—prefer to see a female therapist, either because they believe that a woman will be able to relate to their specific challenges (for example, sexism in the workplace) or because they imagine feeling more comfortable disclosing sensitive information to a woman. Such beliefs may not turn out to be accurate, however, and adhering too rigidly to a gender preference can at times hinder a client from finding the best therapeutic match.

Do therapists get specific training to help with women’s concerns?

Therapists are trained to provide care to clients of any gender. However, some therapists—both men and women—may pursue additional training in feminist therapy, gender-specific issues, or women’s mental health. Female clients may wish to ask prospective therapists whether they have received specific training in the client’s primary area(s) of concern, or whether they have worked extensively with women on issues similar to their own.

How can I inquire about a therapist’s experience in treating women?

It’s OK—even encouraged!—to ask a therapist directly whether and how often they have treated women in the past, or whether they have treated women dealing with the client’s most prominent concern(s). Competent therapists will be happy to share their educational background, preferred treatment modalities, and prior client experience to help an individual find the therapist best suited to their needs.
