Who is Andrena Smith? I am a daughter, sister, wife, mother and a friend. I have successfully survived, so far, raising three children and I have been married, to one man, for almost thirty-five years.

I have a BSW from the University of British Columbia, with a specialization in Family Therapy, and I am a Registered Social Worker with The Alberta College of Social Workers. I am also registered with the Canadian Professional Counsellors Association and have been trained in the Gottman Method for Couples Therapy.

If there is one thing that I strongly believe in it is the importance of cultivating meaningful relationships. A move from B.C. has taken us to Alberta to be closer to our eldest daughter and her young family. We are learning the importance of, and the joy that comes with, being "hands on" grandparents.

At Wellness Centered, alongside my husband Clint, we provide individual counselling and counselling for couples and families. We are also offering free information sessions and relationship workshops in an effort to give back to the community that means so much to us and that has so warmly welcomed to Central Alberta.

As a counsellor I understand just how easily some of the most important relationships in our lives have a way of becoming unbalanced and disconnected. Plain and simple; relationships are often very difficult. Coupled with my conviction of the importance of relationships is my unwavering belief in the power of unconditional love, even in small doses, and its ability to heal and transform.

I have a reputation of meeting people right where they are in their struggles with love, compassion and understanding. I strive to always maintain a sense of humour and with a very direct, open, no-nonsense, honest style of counselling do my utmost to support people as they become more self-aware and attune to their own wisdom. In the fantastically busy and often confusing world in which we live it is far too easy to overlook the single most important aspect of our lives; the wellbeing of ourselves and our relationships. Every aspect of our existence depends on our attitudes and beliefs and how we relate to others.

At the most core level, our philosophy is that fulfilling relationships are the key to our happiness. That includes the most important relationship of all; the relationship we have with our self. If we can learn to love, honour and accept ourselves without judgment, then we can learn to accept and love others.

Wellness Centered offers professional counselling services, virtually and in person. Our intention is to support the process of learning how to switch from "the glass half empty" to "a glass half full" point of view by concentrating on the "wellness" of every individual and their relationships.
