Lori Kolesnik, MA, CCC, Counsellor in Winnipeg
I believe that any situation is best addressed in a spirit of empathetic, non-judgmental collaboration. My goal is to come alongside individuals, couples and families to create conditions for healing, growth and resilience. I use an integrative approach that is strength-based and person-centered. I have a rich background of over 17 years experience in counselling and educational settings, plus a Master's Degree in Counselling and national certification as a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC), granted by the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association. I am Co-founder, partner and an active therapist at Winnipeg Counselling Group (WCG).
I enjoy working with adults, seniors and youth. My extensive training and experience in Reality Therapy allows me to work effectively with youth and families to address behavioural and parenting concerns. I have skills that address issues affecting youth such as anxiety, depression, eating disorders, bullying and self-harming behaviours.
I have years of experience working with people suffering emotional distress, grief, loss, anxiety, depression, chronic pain, life transitions and relationship issues. I have training in both Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and the Gottman Method for couples - both are well researched, evidence based approaches to couples counselling.
