What can you expect when sitting with Jenny in a counselling session?  She genuinely wants to hear your story, the struggles and successes. Jenny is passionate about providing high-quality therapeutic and professional care that will help you find solutions while encouraging your innate strengths and resiliency. She works creatively to support her clients in understanding their inner world and emotions; this includes developing practical skills and coping strategies like mindfulness and relationship building. Jenny has been working with families, couples, children, youth, and young adults for over 20 years and respects the distinctive aspects of each developmental stage and season of life.

I work with individuals, couples, and children.  When working with couples, my approach is collaborative, helping to strengthen and heal the relationship including developing practical skills. Every committed relationship is unique and each couple’s experience and vision for the relationship must be honoured. When working with children (ages 7-12) creativity and play methods build trust and connection through fun! I desire to help children grow in awareness of feelings and emotions and age-appropriate relationship skills. Parents, you are invaluable therefore, you are part of the counselling process. In working with individuals of any age, grief is an area close to my heart. I recognize everyone experiences and expresses grief in their own way, which can be shaped by their culture, beliefs, and their relationship to their loss.

Jenny holds a Master of Arts in Counselling Degree and is a Certified Canadian Counsellor (CCC). In therapy, I draw on a variety of evidence-based psychological approaches as most fitting for each person(s). I see clients in person, and I am fluent in phone and virtual counselling.
