Different approaches that Winn may use:
  • Counselling – talking through a problem with a third person present often brings clarity and a different perspective to one’s problems
  • EMDR – proven approach to help those who have experienced trauma and abuse and struggle with PTSD
  • Expressive Arts – sometimes talking about our experiences is hard and we lack the words to describe what is going on within us. Art is used to give expression and meaning to our experiences
  • Sand-tray – working through problems using toy figures and sand
  • Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) – focuses on some of the negative thoughts and messages that we have come to believe about ourselves
  • Solution-Focused Therapy – focusing on strengths and solutions rather than focusing on the problem
  • Internal Family Systems – have you ever commented to others, “there is a part of me that wants to… and there is the other part of me that doesn’t.” Each of those parts are an important part of what makes you…you! Listening and understanding them will be an important part of your journey to heal and wholeness
  • E-counselling – recognizing that sometimes it is hard to sit in front of a stranger to talk about one is experiencing in life, Winn offers phone and e-mail counselling

Personal Bio:
 
  Winn recently moved from Calgary back to the Lacombe area. She loves living in Lacombe, she is a small-town girl at heart! Her experience lies in the area of trauma and abuse, primarily working in the area of domestic violence. She has also worked with high risk teen-agers.

She knows and understands how difficult it can be for some people to talk about the challenges in their life and so she has continually sought out training to help you process these life experiences without necessarily talking about them. She is trained in EMDR, sand-tray and the expressive arts which she uses in sessions to assist you in the work that you will be doing in your session.

 Winn has a kind and gentle way about her and she recognizes that coming to see a therapist takes a lot of courage. She brings to each session a desire to honour and respect each person that sits in her office.
