What is meaningful to you? What can be different in your life to bring you closer to that meaning? The impact of invalidation, abuse and neglect can deplete our personal sense of well-being and our ability to connect with others. To better find your solutions I will investigate the problems with you. To do so, I combine my experience as a trauma therapist with approaches such as narrative therapy, behavioural therapy, and somatic work using Brainspotting. In addition, if you have an established relationship with a therapist, I provide short term adjective support using Brainspotting and Safe and Sound Protocol.

I have also worked in a variety of counselling settings including eating disorders and addictions, employment and career counselling, intimate partner violence , and workplace and occupational stress.
I view seeking counselling as an act of courage and an individual's opportunity for personal growth. I believe those seeking counselling are the experts of their own lives and I act as a neutral third party without judgment to be a sounding board or a cheerleader. Together we put the puzzle pieces together to make sense of questions and move forward. My practice is guided by client-centred therapy and my approach uses a variety of modalities including behavioural and cognitive-behavioural therapies as well as other therapies for more of an eclectic stance.

I have worked for over 10 years with survivors of sexual abuse /assault and domestic violence , as well as with people experiencing self-esteem, depression, anxiety, and trauma issues.
Many of us silently cope with difficulties in our lives. But you don't have to. Reaching out to a counsellor for support gives you the opportunity to explore what is holding you back and start improving your quality of life. People have the capacity to make positive changes in their lives with the right support and guidance. With support, you will tap into your strengths, find hope and heal emotional wounds. I work with individual adults who are experiencing mental health issues, trauma, negative self-esteem, sleep issues and relationship issues.

Our experience includes working with unhealthy relationship dynamics, attachment trauma, codependency, emotional and psychological abuse recovery, depression, anxiety.
Accepting new clients! In order to feel loved many of us have developed patterns of abandoning our own needs in favor of pleasing others so we can feel safe in our relationships. These ways of relating and functioning may keep us comfortable but can hold us back from living a meaningful life. Our aim is to help you discover your true self, your values, needs, strengths, and build self-awareness so you can begin to set boundaries and live a life that feels authentic. We provide a warm, nurturing and non-judgmental space where you can explore the patterns that keep you stuck while building new habits that align with your future self.

Jennifer works with clients who are ready to make a dedicated effort toward change. Many of us had unavailable caregivers whom did not have the tools to provide essential emotional support and understanding which then shaped our sense of shame and other core beliefs about our worth. As children we needed to feel safe and protected, to be guided with the appropriate balance of security and independence in order to develop confidence in our decision making. We learned to adapt and survive with coping strategies that continue to exist in the present which are no longer necessary and potentially maladaptive.

Domestic Abuse Counsellors
Domestic abuse can be physical or psychological, and it can affect anyone of any age, gender, race, or sexual orientation. It may include behaviors meant to scare, physically harm, or control a partner. And while every relationship is different, domestic abuse and violence typically involves an unequal power dynamic in which one partner tries to assert control over the other in a variety of ways.
