No issue is too big or too small; whatever is bringing you to counselling, it is valid and it can be addressed. During the first few sessions, goal setting will determine the direction of future sessions. Working with a skilled therapist can lead to greater insight, self-reflection, skill development, crisis resolution, and personal growth. Therapy can assist in identifying and clarifying what might be creating a sense of being stuck, discontent, or disconnected, and this process can lead to making lasting changes to improve overall your well-being and function. Counselling is a process and an investment in yourself. This process can help you to feel more whole, at peace, healthier, and happier.
Jennifer’s core values include integrity, authenticity, respect, persistence, compassion, connection, humour, growth, creativity, health, kindness, and adventure. She lives and practices these values in her daily life. She considers it a privilege to be part of your journey of self-awareness, learning, growth, and change. Aside from her work as a clinical counsellor, Jennifer enjoys spending time in nature, reading, cooking, exploring the world, and spending time with family & friends.
