"Life's not about waiting for the storm to pass ..... It's about learning to dance In the rain." - Vivian Greene - I welcome the opportunity to dance in the rain with you ... to explore the storms that have marred your life and prevented you from knowing joy. To help you discover the beauty of the storm, and perhaps more importantly, become empowered to weather present and future storms. Personal pain takes many forms: relationships that are a little off, and need realignment, or completely broken requiring redesign. Your pain may take the form of depression, anxiety, fear, or traumatic memories.
"A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step" - Lao Tzu Are you ready to take the first step? Working from a client-centered approach, I strive to empower my clients by helping them build a tool box they can use to work through their current and subsequent issues . This process does not follow a specific template as each client is unique and the expert of their own lives. It is through collaborative exploration that the client identifies what they need and how to get there.
I help people cope with the everyday and exceptional challenges of life, experience less suffering, and engage more fully with the present moment. Therapy provides a unique relationship which gives you the opportunity to freely evaluate the thoughts and feelings you carry, particularly those that no longer serve you. My role is to help guide you towards your internal strengths, self-acceptance and trust.

Life often doesn’t go as planned & that’s ok! We all experience hard times. Let’s work together to achieve YOUR goals & explore your strengths. I believe you can lead a full & happy life while managing trauma, mental health or relationship stress. I believe in holistic healing. This means helping you to meet your emotional, physical, relational, & spiritual needs. One of my passions is to partner with nature, spirituality/ faith, & animals to create a safe space.

My name is Dr. Janet Haynes, and I would like to share a bit of who I am as a woman, a mother, and a therapist. Throughout life's journey, I have walked the paths of many clients - poverty, physical/sexual/emotional violence, racism, and generational trauma. Take the first step and let me embark with you on your journey of healing. Speaking to someone who understands the pain and suffering that comes along with trauma will be critical to your healing. I will work with you to develop the tools you need to find or create the solution/s that will empower you to make the positive change towards healing and overall wellness.
Sometimes, life hurts. We can grow through the pain when we turn towards it and use our strengths, gifts and relationships to create change, make meaning, or perhaps simply accept. As a professional counsellor, I will offer an inclusive, accepting, and safe space, and combine my knowledge with yours to help. I hold a Master of Social Work and a Bachelor of Social Work degree and am registered with the Alberta College of Social Workers. I have worked in the addictions and mental health field for over 20 years, in direct service (15 years) and as a program consultant and manager.
Specialized Assessments: Do you require a comprehensive psychological assessment to give you insight into you or your child’s psychological functioning and to provide you with information on how you or your child could be supported? I am a doctoral level psychologist and I provide psycho-educational and psychological/mental health assessments to children, youth and adults. I work with individuals as young as a year old through to adults.

Humor, genuine compassion and empathy are necessary for healing - especially the humor part! Which is why they are benchmarks of my clinical practice. Combined together, the healing force created is a 'game changer' in people's lives. My approach to psychotherapy is person centered (congrats, you are unique! Your therapy should be too), grounded in attachment theory (relationships are our friend! Don't argue...everyone needs a friend) and developmental psychology (we all go through life changes, change suucks, but it's unavoidable). All this guides our path to wellness. Heads up - standard credential speech ahead...

Life is messy. That's all there is to it. Sometimes the mess is manageable...even beautiful. But sometimes, it can be overwhelming and distressing... As Dr. Suess says, sometimes the mess is "so big and so deep and so tall" you have absolutely no idea where to start the process of sorting it out. It is particularly challenging when the tangled mess involves difficult thoughts, big feelings, and important relationships. All of us need some help sorting things out sometimes. If you are ready to sort through this kind of mess, but need help figuring out how to do that, I can help.

From a place of compassion, non-judgment, and curiosity, I work with clients of all ages, in French or English, to help them identify conscious and unconscious patterns of thoughts, core beliefs and behaviours that impact their current way of being in the world. I work with clients in mindfulness and self-attunement, connecting to the body's wisdom in order to make sense of their experiences. Clients are supported toward meaningful change that is sustained through updated beliefs, increased skills, improved self-awareness and a new way of standing in the world.
