At the heart of this therapeutic practice is the idea that problems lie between you and others as opposed to within you. How do you relate to your loved ones, strangers, and the world at large? Questions such as these will help you understand not only what you could change in your life, but also how to change it. The cultivation of truth occurs through building lasting trust: This is the core of working effectively towards solutions and change together.

I am an RCC specializing in treating addiction, trauma, mood disorders, and interpersonal issues. My approach is rooted in the belief that a greater awareness of where our actions and reactions come from can give us the power to change. I work with my clients to understand how their attachment styles and life experiences have informed how they relate to others and to themselves. With this knowledge we work together to address unwanted behaviours and implement new coping skills for emotional regulation and communication.

First off, I want to commend you for the courage you've shown to seek help. My name is Jackie Armour and I am passionate about helping people recover. My experience has shown me that most people struggling with addiction have a history of emotional loss, neglect, or trauma that often operates on a subconscious level. It is our natural impulse to try to ease that pain through addictive substances or behaviors. As a therapist I can help you discover peace within yourself so that you no longer desire to act on your addiction. I want to see you become the best version of yourself and live up to your true potential.

Life is beautiful. But it's also challenging, unpredictable and constantly shifting. However strong and flexible they are, everyone encounters periods of crisis when their usual coping strategies prove inadequate. Interestingly, the Chinese character for 'crisis' comprises words meaning 'danger' and 'opportunity'. Anguish serves a purpose: it catalyzes change. And though change is frequently difficult, frightening and painful, it's also necessary for growth. A crisis announces a new beginning: an opportunity to pursue a more authentic, rewarding and meaningful life. As a counsellor, I help people negotiate the dangers of a crisis, and seize the unrecognized opportunities they conceal.
