  • About Us

  • Are you dealing with something that's getting in the way, or keeping you stuck, from living your life with joy, peace and self-compassion?  Is pain from your past or worries about the future making it hard to enjoy the present?  We can all experience challenges that cause pain, anxiety, grief, shame and/or confusion for us.  It can feel overwhelming and you can feel lost.  If you can relate to any of this I'm here to confirm that there is hope and help available, and you are in the right place.  Take a deep breath and know that you are not alone.

    Hi, I'm MJ and I'm happy you have found my website.  I am a Certified Canadian Counsellor/Therapist registered with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA) and I have extensive professional training and experience with a diverse clientele of all ages and walks of life.  I'm here because I have a passion for working with and helping my clients on their journey to achieve their goals.  I consider it a sacred honour and privilege to be trusted with what my clients bring to the table and the courage that they show in seeking help.

    When you make the decision to come to counselling, it is essential that you find the right therapist that you can feel comfortable with and experience a safe, supportive therapeutic relationship.  I provide a safe, warm, compassionate, collaborative and confidential space in which clients can do the work that they need to do.  My approach is relaxed, accepting, and client-centred, and I treat my clients with the unconditional respect and dignity that we all deserve.

    My practice is based on a holistic, interconnected view of health, wellness and healing.  I believe that you are the expert in your life and you have the solutions within you to overcome your challenges and move forward on your journey.  My role as your therapist is to help you explore and better understand those challenges and help you to develop viable strategies, options and choices for making positive changes in your life.

    I will assist you by drawing from various evidence-based theories and techniques including CBT, Solution-Focused Therapy, trauma-informed, attachment-based, brain-based, strength-based, culturally sensitive, empowerment and eclectic theories. Together we will create goals that empower you to make positive changes, and develop coping strategies to live the life you want.

    I work with individuals, couples, families and groups.  I have diverse training and experience but I specialize in the areas of trauma and abuse (past or recent) recovery, PTSD, survivors of sexual abuse, survivors of domestic violence, Indigenous intergenerational trauma and residential school/60s scoop issues, self-esteem and self-confidence, grief/loss, anxiety, depression, and suicidal ideation.  I am here to help.

    If you have the desire and hope that your life can be better, and you long for a life with inner strength, joy, self-compassion and peace then why not get started now?  Please click the 'Contact Us' icon and I will be happy to get back to you!

    Take care and remember to breathe!      MJ
