My name is Chelsea Smyth and I am the founder of Village Therapy. The pressure and expectations on mothers are at an all-time high, yet the traditional support system of the village no longer exists. I founded Village Therapy to help women navigate motherhood and to help them in building their village, so that they can shift from surviving to thriving.
 
Our mission at Village Therapy is to broaden access to Maternal Mental Health support during the perinatal period by offering convenient, professional, non-judgmental online therapy. 
 
Whether you are pregnant, postpartum, or have experienced infertility or pregnancy loss, I want to help you on your journey to feeling well again.
 
Village Therapy makes accessing counselling easy, by offering all of our sessions by telephone, text, or live video chat.

While there are many benefits to traditional face-to-face therapy, I know as a new mom or a mama-to-be, you are often inundated with appointments and going to therapy can just be too much, even when you know you really need it. That is why I have pursued specialized training in offering therapy online.  I wanted to be able to broaden access to mental health support.  So, whether you live in a rural community of Alberta or you just don't want to bundle your little one up in the cold winter, you can still reap the benefits of counselling with Village Therapy.  
 
I have specialized training in perinatal mental health & online therapy. Whether you are at the preconception stage, or already parenting, we are here to help you.
 
In therapy, I am warm, genuine and non-judgmental. I am a mother too and so I understand how difficult it is. I want you to feel safe to share your worries with me. My general philosophy in therapy is that each of us are experts in our own lives and often, we just need someone to talk to in order to discover what will work best for us. I want to be your sounding board.

I am patient-centred in my approach and will never tell you what is best for you or your family, but it is my goal in therapy to work together to generate solutions.  We will find an approach that will work best for you and your family's unique needs. I want you to succeed so we will work together to develop a treatment plan that you feel comfortable and confident with.
 
Come get the support you deserve.
