Modern life presents challenges: unanticipated changes and problems that appear to have no easy solution. There are times when counselling and support can help. Sharing concerns often leads to greater insight and promotes positive change. As a Registered Social Worker in practise for over 20 years, I am licensed to practise counselling and psychotherapy. Trained as a Child and Family Therapist, I have worked with clients of all ages. My counselling style is client-centered and strengths based. Together we will identify your goals and work toward accomplishing them, encouraging greater resiliency in the process.
I hope to provide space for you to feel heard and be seen. Through sessions you will create and implement effective coping strategies to better address layers of complexity and improve ease in daily functioning, learn how to maintain rewarding relationships with effective boundaries and problem solving skills, and engage in new patterns of vitality that inspire purpose and productivity. I support building attuned and affirming parent-child relationships, safety and emotion regulation for adolescents, re-igniting meaningful connection and validating communication within couples.
Hi I'm Katie :) I love journeying with clients through life’s difficulties as they work to reach their counselling goals. I understand clients are often approaching me with some tough life issues and are sacrificing (time, finances, ect.) to pursue counselling. I'm compassionate, attentive and I am hopeful for change. I'm passionate about helping to empower clients to face mental health challenges so they can realize the hope that exists for them to live a full life. I also recognize the need to support, equip and educate family members, friends, and colleagues of those living with difficult mental health and personality issues.
I believe that each person’s story and reason for accessing therapy is unique to them, and so my approach is to meet you where you are. I work with children, youth, and adults and have 10 years of experience supporting people to achieve their goals. I have worked extensively with children, and adults. I believe that successful therapy starts with a strong therapeutic relationship between myself and my client and I am honoured that you would consider inviting me to support you. I will provide a non-judgemental experience, focusing on the goals you wish to attain.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist who is committed to helping others live life to their fullest potential by addressing the challenges they are experiencing. I believe in building a therapeutic relationship that is respectful, genuine and meaningful, while collaboratively creating strategies and solutions. I believe that clients access therapy for a variety of reasons and my approach is to draw upon your strengths and develop interventions that best fit your individual needs. I have more than 20 years of experience working with children, youth and families in a variety of settings helping them to live their best lives.
Covid-19 has revealed the dark side of life. Things are so painful, overwhelming, and hidden hurts and wounds are being exposed. Families, couples, and individuals ask themselves, “Where do we begin? Where are we going?” Your story begins now. As the founder and owner of The Story Isn’t Over, I provide a safe place for you to speak freely, and explore your emotions to find healing in your story.I prioritize an empathetic and compassionate relationship with my clients. I believe that a good therapeutic relationship is critical to the therapeutic process.
Experiencing feelings of sadness, stress and/or anxiety? Overwhelmed by thoughts about the past or worries about the future? Looking to improve your current life situation, mood and/or relationships? Counselling can lead to increased satisfaction in life and relationships. I provide individual, couples, and family counselling to children, youth and adults seeking to enhance social, emotional and overall well-being. Adopting a client-focused, strength based approach, I support clients in building self-awareness, self-esteem, and coping skills to facilitate desired change.
I work with clients who wish to heal from traumatic experiences and with general mental health concerns such as depression, anxiety, and grief. I have experience working with individuals with traumatic backgrounds, Borderline Personality Disorder, addictions, personality disorders, religious trauma, and eating disorders.
As a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying) and a Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist, my services are geared towards those experiencing difficulty regulating their emotions. Clients often speak of wanting to develop a "pause" button for when they experience intense/overwhelming emotions (anger, sadness, fear, helplessness, anxiety). The goal of therapy is thus to help clients respond, rather than react, to their emotions.
I am a Registered Psychotherapist who has been supporting children, youth, and adults for over 15 years. I specialize in trauma responsive, strengths-based, and anti-oppressive practices using a variety of integrative approaches to address the unique needs of each individual, and welcome all expressions of diversity.

Sometimes we feel exhausted, defeated, or like we are constantly battling with our brain and might need some assistance to sort through our thoughts, feelings, or emotions. Especially with the ongoing uncertainty of Covid-19, which can present additional pressures. You may be experiencing the added stress of fear, anxiety, and/or financial struggles. Whatever the case may be, therapy can assist in navigating life stressors, building resiliency, and overcoming negative thought patterns that keep us "stuck". Using a biopsychosocial model, biological, psychological, and social factors are all considered to ensure a holistic approach.

I offer a safe, non-judgemental, client centered therapeutic space for individuals and couples. I believe that a journey towards healing requires empathy, encouragement and supportive facilitation as we often haven't had the opportunity to learn ways to cope with traumatic experiences and life related stressors. This can result in dysregulation and feelings of anxiety, depression and overwhelm in our day to day lives and relationships. Let's work together to explore and address your concerns in an open minded, anti-oppressive, trauma-informed, sex/body positive, LGBTQ+ inclusive space.
Hello, my name is Connie and I am an RP (qualifying) working at Dig A Little Deeper. I have certification and training in trauma-focused therapy, suicide prevention, and ADHD. My approach to therapy is rooted in my belief that the therapeutic alliance is foundational to successful treatment outcomes. I understand the importance of listening to clients from a culturally informed perspective, and a place of non-judgment and positive regard.
Taking care of our mental health is more important than ever. Therapy allows you to comfortably share the thoughts, feelings, behaviours and relationship issues that are most troubling in your life. Therapy is a collaborative process, where clients are the experts in their own lives. Together, we will develop an understanding of who you are and the core aspects of what has brought you to therapy. We then will work on building on the strengths you already have and learn further strategies to put you forward in the life you want to lead.
Compassionate and effective trauma, anxiety, PTSD, and loss therapy. I work with adults who have survived a trauma or loss and want to move forward. My clients have thoughts like, "I'm not good enough" or "I could have done something different." These are very common thoughts following trauma and loss. These thoughts keep you stuck though. You deserve to be able to move forward. I am here to show you how and to help you do just that. I am proud to provide therapy for health care professionals, firefighters, police officers, and other first responders, including therapists, nurses, and teachers. Also, LGBTQ+ safe space and welcomed.

I work with children and their families as a Social Worker providing therapeutic services. I have had the opportunity to support children and their families through times of stress, challenge, transition, and trauma. I greatly respect and value the internal capacity to adapt and heal. I strive to provide a safe and nonjudgmental space, to amplify an individual's strengths, in order to facilitate growth. I have been honoured to be able to share my knowledge in order to provide children and their families with adaptive coping tools and resources, while always remembering to acknowledge moments of connection, success, and play.
Welcome! I tailor my approach to the client's needs and personality. I believe in working collaboratively with my clients, where my role is to help clients explore their circumstances to find the answers that are right for them.
It's understandable to feel stressed out or shut down when life is hard; situations difficult and relationships confusing. We usually cannot control our outside experiences, at times making it hard to cope. I work with people who want to enhance their ability to respond to life’s challenges with greater ease, confidence, and knowing. I support individuals to overcome feelings of anxiety and depression, difficult situations, relationship challenges, self harm and trauma. I will gently guide you through a process of discussion and reflection to promote understanding and awareness as you develop skills to foster change.
I believe each client and family is unique in their own journey and it is important to meet my clients where they are at. I develop goals that identify the area of need and build off of each individual’s strengths.
