Having worked in the Health Care field for over 17 years, I have gained a wide range of knowledge about helping individuals and families who are suffering from an illness, anxiety, PTSD or struggling with their sexual identity. I have gained my skill set by providing support to others, as well as from my own experiences. I am a proud member of the LGBTQ community and the mom of a strong daughter who beat cancer. With all of my clients, I draw on both my life experience as well as my education, and is a strong believer of partnership and collaboration to help my clients reach their goals.
Hello, my name is Terresa McKenzie. Having experienced working with youth, women, men and couples has provided me with an understanding of the unique perspectives of each person within a family system, as well as how the whole system works together. I value that people have layers which can conflict. My goal for our work together is to gently help my clients understand these layers in order to address them while holding self-compassion, because we all have histories and challenges and sometimes just need a different perspective from someone who can see our strength through vulnerability.
Each of us can be impacted by anxiety, stress, trauma and relationship difficulties as we go through life. I assist individuals in processing difficult emotions and experiences, navigating life transitions, learning new coping and relationship skills as well as exploring identity and developing a strong sense of self. Systemic discrimination has a profound impact on mental health, and I aim to offer safe counselling services to queer, trans, non-binary, neurodiverse and culturally diverse clients. I believe that every person is the expert and author of their life story, and my role is to assist you in writing the next chapter.
Each day, life presents us with questions that may be difficult to answer. Sometimes we know the answer but do not know how to get there, at other times the answer may feel out of reach. Questions like: What does it mean to be who we are? Do we have space to be ourselves in the world? Exploring these questions can bring us closer to who we are and who we want to be. Counselling can be an opportunity to welcome emotion and experience something new in relationship. We do not become who we are without the presence of others and a focus of our work can be for you to experience safety, trust, warmth, and non-judgmental care.

Accepting new clients! This is definitely not what you expected. You may have thought that everything would fall perfectly into place, that becoming or being a parent would be the most natural thing in the world. Now, you’re finding that the fears, the anxiety, the self-doubt, the grief over your old life, or the disconnection from your partner are ruling your mind. You might be having a tough time sleeping, noticing some scary thoughts popping up, and just getting through each day is a trial. You wonder if you’re really connecting with your partner or your child(ren). You might be wondering who you even are these days.
Welcome! I am a registered psychologist with extensive experience with a wide variety of individuals and concerns. I am well versed in evidence based therapeutic methods such as cognitive behaviour therapy, solution focused and emotion focused methods, among others. Together we can form a plan to help you reach your goals; whether that is decreased anxiety or depression, a more fulfilling relationship with your partner, children or family or an increase in personal self-worth. Please take a look at my website for further information about me, and my services.

Licensed Professional Counsellor, BED, MA Psyc, RCC
I works specifically with youth, families, and women facing anxiety, self regulation issues, depression, life or family changes, women's issues, and trauma. My clients need a space to process adverse life experiences as well as set appropriate goals which may help them to move forward or learn to let go. My clients want someone to listen to them empathically while also challenging any distorted beliefs or obstacles that may be in the way of their healing.
If you are struggling with feelings of anxiety, hopelessness, depression, or anger it can be hard to remember that change is possible. I believe that taking the first step to reach out for help can be a powerful way to remind ourselves that we don't have to remain feeling stuck and that we have the power to create changes. Using evidence based interventions (EMDR, IFS, CBT), I provide clients with the tools and strategies that can help them reach their goals and recognize their ability for both change and growth.
Struggling with anxiety, depression, stress, loss, life transitions or other life challenges? Take the first step towards healing through evidence-based strategies, and the deep work of core emotional processing. My therapeutic approach is person-centered, warm, compassionate, and uniquely understanding. During my career, I have been profoundly honoured to witness and help guide my clients to not only heal, but thrive and grow into their authentic selves.

“Pain and suffering are always inevitable for a large intelligence and a deep heart” writes Fyodor Dostoyevsky. This quote, though inspiring, leaves much unexplained. How do we transform our experiences of pain and suffering (i.e. anxiety, grief, depression, relationship discord) into the beauty of a deeper heart? Marcel Proust provides a clue, “We are healed of a suffering only by experiencing it to the full”. Thus, the transformation of suffering comes through full experience. In a society that tends to bury suffering, a guide specializing in unearthing its hidden potential is key.
Most people find themselves seeking a counselor to help navigate through pain and difficulty. I believe that although pain is a part of us it doesn’t have to dictate our future. As a counselor my goal is not just to help you to move away from pain, but moreover, to help you move towards living life. You have a unique story and not only do I love to listen, I want to be part of the transformative process in your life. You will find me warm, relatable and I will challenge you at times to help you grow. Change and healing take work, and I am here to help you do the work that will move you towards other side of healing.
As a counsellor I hope to model grace, courage, and genuineness to my clients while I come along side them, and act as a resource for positive change in their lives. I have a warm, engaging, and professional demeanour that helps clients feel at ease, supported, and able to embrace the delicate balance between risk, hope, and trust. Most importantly, I want my clients to know that it is an absolute privilege that they invite me into their lives to share on their journey with them. This may include helping my clients with concerns relating to their personal growth, wellness, relationships, mental health, and/or psychological distress.
Maybe you find yourself overwhelmed by multiple pressures, or you’re anxious but can’t quite figure out why, or maybe you’re in the middle of a crisis and just don’t know where to start to find a solution. Whatever the situation, we will work together to empower you and equip you with the skills and tools necessary to overcome or navigate whatever challenge you are up against.
