About

Significant life events and transitions can throw anyone off their "best self." Our work together will help you regain a sense of balance and focus, identity, and belonging. I believe individuals are experts on themselves, and I walk beside my clients offering insight and resources that help them move toward the life they want to live. "True belonging doesn’t require you to change who you are; it requires you to be who you are.”-Brene Brown
Mirrell has been trained in EMDR, DBT and Trauma-Focused CBT, as well as a few other psychotherapies. Her interests lie in back to work programs, PTSD and trauma, veterans, and first responders. She is an approved Peer Support provider for First Responders. Mirrell can provide individual, group, and couples counselling.
Mirrell Desjardins was born and raised in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. She is a holistic, Cree Metis Status Indian Counsellor whose origins began on Muskeg Lake Reserve. After spending 25 years abroad, Mirrell relocated back to Canada in January 2019.
