Healing from Trauma, Anxiety, Depression & Grief
I am a Counsellor, a co-founder of a non-profit organization, a volunteer, a wife, and a mother of two children. I enjoy outdoor activities and am fortunate to enjoy excellent health. My interests include skiing, boating, hiking, photography, travel, and spending time with my family and friends.
I have been interested in Counselling and Psychology for many years. I received a BSc. with a double major in Psychology and Linguistics followed by various jobs and volunteer opportunities that have fed my desire to help others and learn more about mental health. In 2016 I opened my private practice as a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor specializing in trauma resolution.
What I have found to be true is that there is no greater learning than experiencing an event for yourself. In 2013 I almost lost my life in a river rafting accident while vacationing with my family in Italy. My world shifted that day. The trauma of that event led me down a difficult path but ultimately to a path of recovery and a career in Counselling. I have experienced post traumatic symptoms and understand the struggles that come with witnessing or experiencing an event that is far too much to bear. I am now more driven and dedicated than ever to helping others as they navigate challenges in life and more specifically, the aftershocks of trauma and PTSD.
Jennifer is a co-founder of LIGHT ON PTSD, a non-profit organization that increases awareness, gathers funds to support future initiatives for families and organizes events dedicated to reaching out to those who are struggling with post traumatic stress.
I am a therapist who will work at your own pace and who will support you in the healing and renegotiation of your experience.
When treated thoroughly healing can lead not only to symptom reduction, but long-term transformation.
I welcome you to contact me to discuss your goals and to determine whether I might be a good fit for you. If not, I would be more than happy to refer you to someone who may better suit your needs.
