Welcome! My name is Kristen and I want to thank you for taking a look at my profile. I believe that creating a safe and empathetic space is essential to the counselling experience. I utilize a client-centred and compassionate approach to address a wide range of concerns including trauma, grief, anxiety, OCD, body-focused repetitive behaviours, phobias, life transitions, PTSD, stress, shame, substance use disorders, and low self-esteem.

When I first began my career as a therapist, I was working in the addiction field. It was through this experience that I recognized how the ongoing pain of trauma, anxiety, and low self-worth can create a profound and lasting impact on so many of us. And even though I was a witness to pain and hardships during this time, I was also a witness to self-compassion, resilience, and an individual's incredible capacity to heal. This time in my life inspired me to work with people to help ease the emotional pain that issues like anxiety, trauma, and shame can create and maintain in a person's life.
At the center of how I counsel is the therapeutic relationship. I like to create a very warm, welcoming, and genuine environment where you can feel safe to share about yourself and what you are experiencing. I place focus on a non-judgemental and accepting therapeutic relationship to make room for trust and growth. Through a personalized and eclectic style of therapy, I work with you to help discover, and move toward, the goals and changes you would like to see in your life. I also like to think that you are the expert on yourself and, though I am there to help guide and provide feedback and strategies, at the end of the day you know yourself best and I seek to honour that in our sessions.
A little about my qualifications, I have received my Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology from Yorkville University as well as a post-graduate certificate in Addictions Treatment and Prevention from Georgian College, and am registered with the CRPO. I have also received training and/or certifications in EMDR, Internal Family Systems, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Exposure and Response Prevention, Sand Tray Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, and Grief Counselling, and have the designation as a Certified Trauma Professional.
Therapy can help us create immeasurable positive change in our worlds and, if this is a path you are are wanting to explore, I would be honoured to be a part of your journey!
