Updated Feb. '24: I am currently accepting clients with daytime availability and work with individuals and couples in my practice. Using a collaborative, supportive, and non-judgemental approach, I empower clients to work towards their goals, overcome obstacles, and create new, healthier patterns in their lives. I help a wide variety of clients with anxiety, depression, body image issues, life transitions, trauma, relationship issues, grief and loss, and other challenges. Please feel free to book yourself into my schedule via emmadonaldcounselling.janeapp.com or reach out to me to ask any questions and learn more about my approach!
Based on the diversity of presenting problems and desired outcomes from therapy each client brings, I draw from a variety of modalities to tailor treatment to each client. These include CBT, the Gottman Method (Level 1 and 2), inner child work, person-centred therapy, mindfulness practices, Bowen Family Systems, and DBT, amongst others.
Reach out to me to book an initial appointment or free 20-minute consultation to see if we'd be a good fit! I look forward to connecting.

In my practice, I strongly believe in tailoring the approach to the client's needs as opposed to having a "one size fits most" way of working. Based on this, I draw from CBT, DBT, ACT, The Gottman Method, and many other modalities to best support my clients. I am also passionate about continuing education and make sharpening my skillset a priority.
