Do you find yourself repeating unhelpful behaviours, feeling overwhelmed by emotions, hearing negative self-talk or are you burdened by grief from loss or incidents that occurred in the past? Have you, members of your family or ancestors experienced trauma related to colonization or other historical events? I recognize that colonization and other acts of oppression occur in present day life. Would you like to work through these processes and begin a journey towards a more fulfilling, wholehearted life?

I work with clients whom wish to push the boundaries of “normal” to uncover & deconstruct the root causes of their suffering. Many of the people that I work with are dealing with major depression, anxiety, grief, relationship issues, and overall frustration with the current state of society and the environment. The clients that I see often present to me with symptoms such as feeling blocked, overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, alone, and powerless in their life. I support clients to transform their pain into strength so that they can live a more fulfilled life.

When painful thoughts and emotions show up, it can be like trying to find our way through a fog. It’s hard to live the way we want to when anxiety makes our mind spin in circles, when shame hangs on us like a dead weight, and when our inner voice is constantly questioning and criticizing. As painful as they are, these feelings are here to show us that something needs to change. By listening to them and working through them together, we can clear the path to a life that is manageable and fulfilling. In my practice, I work with adults—both individuals and couples—to help them find that path.

First off, I want to commend you for the courage you've shown to seek help. My name is Jackie Armour and I am passionate about helping people recover. My experience has shown me that most people struggling with addiction have a history of emotional loss, neglect, or trauma that often operates on a subconscious level. It is our natural impulse to try to ease that pain through addictive substances or behaviors. As a therapist I can help you discover peace within yourself so that you no longer desire to act on your addiction. I want to see you become the best version of yourself and live up to your true potential.

Within challenge there is opportunity for growth and healing. Any crisis, while intensely difficult, can also put you in touch with your deeper yearnings and surface new strengths and resilience. Without support and guidance though, you can get stuck in painful places. Your life may feel lacking or out-of-control. You may feel overwhelming grief, depression, anxiety & panic. You may struggle to make meaning or be unsure which way to turn. When stress and suffering feel like too much to bear, please reach out for help. We will bring compassionate awareness to your challenges while nurturing your everyday wellbeing and wholeness.

Among them are cognitive behavioral therapy, interpersonal neurobiological ideas, family systems therapy, and attachment theory.

I work at a pace compatible with your ability to integrate change. I am gentle and encouraging, but firm and forthright.

What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in V8T are psychologists, licensed counselors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualized treatment.

Services offered, education and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in V8T then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety. Although many mental health providers are not licensed to prescribe medication, they may coordinate with a provider who can.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.

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 V8T, or Child Psychologists in V8T.

Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like V8T 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 V8T 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.
