As young professional women , we often face challenges that make us feel stressed and anxious. We feel lost and question why this is so much harder to handle now than before. We overthink and wish to get past our emotions, leading to confusion about how to move forward. It can feel like we are losing a sense of who we are, our abilities, and our direction. All we yearn for is to find a sense of peace and to feel confident again in ourselves.

Hi, my name is Jenna, owner and Counselling Therapist at Mountain View Counselling. I specialize in infant and early childhood mental health. When working with children and teens, I work closely with you, the child’s caregiver. You are the most important person in your child’s life, and therapy will be most effective if we work together as a team. Sessions may include parent coaching sessions, child-focused sessions or family sessions. Often, a combination of these sessions is involved. In addition to these services, I also provide counselling services to new mothers; supporting women during their postpartum period.

I am offering group therapy through a wellness lens to build healthy habits and expand personal growth (I'm not accepting new clients for individual therapy at this time). Included are other weekly groups such as pilates, dance, batch cooking and creative studio time. Using systems theory, ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) and positive psychology, you'll explore your obstacles, goals and personal potential. The rest of the program is about doing what you’re learning, giving you time and space to put your healthy habits into motion with support. GOOD Together is about group wellness in action. You don't have to do it alone.

I help adults and couples who want to have healthy and supportive relationships but instead find themselves feeling misunderstood, unheard, and unhappy. My clients find that issues with romantic partners, family or friends, can be difficult and unfulfilling. They feel lonely and disconnected.

The many twists and turns of life can be challenging to process and navigate. You may have experienced new or longstanding adversity that can make relationships challenging, cause overwhelming anxiety, or lead you to become withdrawn and depressed. I will collaborate with you to develop a warm, compassionate therapeutic relationship to help you explore how your body and mind respond to the complex emotions that emerge with such life adversity. For most of us, these patterns are automatic, but as you get to know yourself you can uncover new choices and options for meaningful, lasting change.

I consider myself to be an eclectic practitioner. I employ many different therapeutic approaches including: Narrative, CBT, Solution Focused, Trauma Informed therapies, Mindfulness practices, ACT and Behavioural Modification strategies. I tend to work primarily from a Narrative Therapy approach, which is an approach to counselling that seeks to be respectful and non-blaming. It centres the client as the expert in their own lives and views problems as separate from the client themselves. Narrative Therapists assume clients have many skills, competencies, beliefs, values, commitments and abilities that will assist them in reducing the influence of problems in their own lives.

I strive to provide a safe and creative space for people to gain a deeper self-understanding and develop tools for navigating life's challenges. As a registered counselling therapist (candidate) and accredited music therapist, my speciality lies in integrating the creative processes (music, visual art, creative writing) in therapy as tools for self-expression, reflection, and development. I see each person as an innately and uniquely creative person capable of using this creativity as a resource in their therapy. Sessions with me typically integrate elements of talk therapy, music therapy, and mindfulness-based practices.

I am best able to help clients who are desirous of making changes in their lives and understand that "the slower you go, the faster you get there". My practice provides a safe space for patients to put all of their thoughts and feelings into words. As patients talk, they learn about themselves and better understand their journey. As the unconscious becomes conscious, patients are able to make more thoughtful and meaningful choices and thus begin to live more full and meaningful lives.

Each professional in Halifax then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety.

How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Halifax, or Child Psychologists in Halifax.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Halifax psychologists specializing in EMDR.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Halifax specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
