My name is Edite Pine and I am of mixed Mi’kmaq/French /Quechua ancestry. My therapeutic approach uses both Western and First Nation modalities.
 
We will consider these questions together: 
- Where are you holding your fear/trauma/anxiety in your body?
- How do you unblock/let go of trauma?
- How has your past informed your present?  
- How do you transform your stories and begin to fully embrace the life you want to live?
- How have your past relationship dynamics informed your present relationships?
 
 My Approach:
 I incorporate a wide variety of techniques in my counselling approach because there is no ‘one size fits all’ mode of therapy; every person and the stories they carry are complex and different. Thus, we will work together to design a therapeutic process that fits with your unique story and needs. Below, I have listed my general philosophy as well as some key modalities.
- Holistic.  In my counselling approach, I strive to create a ‘sacred’ or safe space for you to strengthen
and deepen your relationship with your mind/body/emotions/spirit, thereby revealing how you may be blocking your own healing.
- Relationship-Centred. Your relationship with your ‘Whole Self’ (mind/body/emotion/spirit) impacts every other relationship in your life. This means, that if you are out of balance in one sphere, it will reverberate and cause imbalance in all areas. 
Psychodrama and Art therapy techniques. These techniques are useful in accessing information beyond cognitive reasoning 
Mindfulness and Guided Relaxation 
Gestalt and Narrative Therapy Techniques

 - Couples and families interested in deepening communication and breaking out of tired unhealthy dynamics. I have experience working within non-monogamous/open/poly(amorous, affective, fidelity) contexts.
