Heather Hopkins
Counsellor, MEd, CCC
Verified
I have completed extensive certificate training in the area of Play Therapy and enjoy working with children and adolescents and their families.
As a Certified Canadian Counsellor I take a holistic, client centered approach. I draw upon different therapeutic strategies. The benefit of an eclectic approach allows me to adapt approaches in order to best suit client needs. I believe clients have the answers they need within themselves and I work collaboratively to help them discover their own strengths. I provide a warm environment where clients can feel comfortable and supported. I have successfully worked with clients struggling with grief and loss, depression and anxiety, relationship challenges, parenting, post trauma, self-esteem, life transitions, stress, and communication.

Counsellor, MEd , CCC

I take a gentle and supportive approach to counselling, specializing in CBT, empowerment and work with children and youth.
If this last year has taught us anything, it's that sometimes things happen in life that are beyond our control. Changing and adapting to new situations can be difficult. Navigating through that process can be challenging but talking through it can help gain perspective.

I look forward to connecting with you to see if I am the right fit to support you, your child , youth or family in making meaningful and adaptive life changes.
I understand that finding the right therapist and reaching out for support can feel overwhelming. I hope to ease that burden through an initial consultation. As a counsellor, I prioritize cultivating a safe and accepting therapeutic environment. My approach to therapy is integrative and collaborative, meaning that I work with clients to develop a treatment plan that feels meaningful and impactful to them. In my practice, I work with folks across the lifespan to navigate life transitions, grief, reducing stress, relational challenges, anxiety, depression, emotional and behavioural challenges, and attachment and parenting concerns.

Clinical Social Work/Therapist, BSW, MSW, RSW
Verified
As a mother of three young children (including twins!), I take a keen interest in perinatal mental health and recognize the ever-evolving challenges of parenthood.
I offer an authentic, non-judgmental, relational approach to therapy, and prioritize openness and collaboration in the therapeutic relationship. Acknowledging and appreciating the uniqueness of individual circumstances, I employ an individual approach to practice. I am a trauma informed, and strengths focused clinician, working from an anti-oppressive framework, who believes an effective therapeutic relationship is one of the greatest vehicles for change. Each individual is the expert of their own life, and therefore sessions are client focused and client paced.

I have a Masters Degree in Social Work and nearly 20 years experience offering therapy to individuals, couples and families. I understand that reaching out for therapy can be difficult. It can create feelings of anxiety or shame, and a fear of being misunderstood or judged. I believe that therapy should be a non-judgmental, collaborative experience, where you can uncover and confront the obstacles preventing you from having the life you want. With me you will find a non- judgmental, compassionate, trauma-informed, queer positive, gender affirming, respectful space that is inclusive to all.
