Hi! I’m Kenzie and I’m a farm girl at heart. Sometimes this means my services are supported with furry co-therapists (mainly horses) or even just beyond walls through outdoor appointments. It’s not all serious business, I love to use humor and bring in different ways of learning and growing together. My main goal in counselling is to help you live in more alignment with your values and explore the barriers you may face along the way. I believe that human connection is integral to our well-being and counselling can be a great step in nurturing that need while finding out how to improve your relationship with yourself and others.

I am passionate about creating safe spaces for individuals who feel that they don’t fit in or are never good enough, along with those who consider themselves to be misfits, hot messes, depressed, anxious, those who misuse substances/alcohol or who just want to figure out who they are. Counselling can be scary, but if you're ready to take this first step, I'll walk beside you. If you want "normal" (wait, what is that anyway?) and authentic, you've found the right gal. I tend to be straight forward, simple and will integrate all the fancy therapy words into something that can be understood in your own personal life.

Currently I am only accepting new clients from existing contracts (police, fire and medical staff). However, other therapists in my clinic, MindScape Psychology, are accepting a full range of clientele. My job is to walk alongside people who have suffered psychological or moral injury in their line of work. Together we work to seek relief from the ripple effects of trauma, depression, anxiety and addiction and to build the future they want for themselves.

I believe that healing is a personal process that involves strengthening the body, mind and spirit. I empower my clients to learn and grow in ways that activate their potential and help them heal and grow. Some people have different strengths and comfort zones, so I use an eclectic approach to unlock the strengths and capabilities of my clients. Sometimes the best healing can happen outside the office like on a walk or interacting with an animal.

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.
