Philosophy: I consider it a privilege to work with individuals and couples willing to be open enough and vulnerable enough to share their inner worlds with me, and to try new things even when it may feel uncomfortable or scary. I love to see the sense of purpose, contentment, clarity, satisfaction, and hope that clients achieve through their psychotherapy experiences. I welcome clients of any race, faith, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, background, and ability.

Treatment Specialties: I would describe my counselling approach as empathic,strengths-based, active, collaborative, and evidence-based. This means that I focus on understanding what’s important to you, where you feel stuck, what you have tried, and what has and hasn’t been helpful. I will then use that information, along with my knowledge and experience of what works, to guide what strategies we try but will also regularly seek your input and feedback to make therapy as effective as possible for you. I see you as the expert on your own life, and me as a supportive coach who offers new perspectives or strategies to help you move forward. I work with adults and couples experiencing a broad range of issues, including:

  • Anxiety, panic attacks, work and/or personal stress, self-criticism and procrastination
  • Trauma and PTSD
  • Relationship issues such as difficulties with communication, conflict, trust and connection
  • Chronic pain
  • Depression, grief, and loss
  • Perinatal struggles such as adjustment difficulties, postpartum anxiety and depression
  • Feeling stuck or lacking a sense of direction or purpose
  • Challenges with making a change, whether it’s reducing smoking or drinking, increasing physical activity or other healthy behaviours, spending more time with loved ones, or doing more self-care.

If you’re wondering if I would be a good fit for you and your needs, or just have a few questions before you’re ready to book an appointment, please feel free to contact the clinic to book a free 10-minute consultation with me.

 

Personal Interests: I love running, hiking and camping in the mountains, Zumba classes, Fringe plays, live music, watching Oilers games and tennis, and spending time with family and friends.

  • Depression & Mood

  • Mindfulness
Education Credentials: 
  • Masters in Counselling Psychology (Athabasca University); 
  • Bachelor in Psychology-Applied Enhanced Stream (Concordia University of Alberta);
  • Circle of Security Parenting;
  • Talaris Parenting, 
  • Triple P Parenting.  
Philosophy:  I love attachment, which is a strong emotional bond created within seconds of birth  between infant and caregiver. This attachment is foundational for all human beings we need attachment to survive For children, this emotional bond helps create healthy friendships, self-worth, success in school/work and self-regulation. Later on, as adults, our attachment system shows us in our intimate relationships with our partners but also our children.

Treatment Specialities: One of my passions is parents with parenting struggles, whatever  the age of their child. My  background has offered me parenting coaching experiences for ages 0 to 14. I love educating  parents on healthy expectations of their children, so ultimately, they feel more competent and successful in positively disciplining their children. We sometimes parent the way we were parented, without the intention of doing it exactly the same way. But without a deeper understanding of what to do differently, you may feel lost. That is completely normal and you are certainly not alone.   

A couple of my strengths is being genuinely empathetic to your situation while using humour to remember some  fun strategies moving forward. Life can get serious, the work to change ourselves  doesn’t always have to be. 
Fun fact about Simone: I am a wanderlust adventurer. I love travelling. I’ve been to 16 countries and 6 continents, with the hope to 
make it to all 7 continents.

become more resilient. I create a safe space by being non-judgmental, genuine, and empathetic.  I genuinely care about my client’s well-being, am relatable and easy to talk to, and am passionate about seeing people meet their personal and professional goals.

  • Trauma & PTSD
  • Egg Donor Psychological Evaluations
Specialty Training: EMDR (Eye Movement Sensitization and Reprocessing), SRT (Self-Regulation
Therapy)
Philosophy: I strongly believe one major path to health is building and maintaining healthy relationships – from that place I have a passion for couples’ therapy. In individual therapy, which is also important to me, I always keep my eye (and ear) on relationship health. I really value the practice of psychology – every life is different, every way of approaching life’s challenges is unique to each individual.

Treatment Specialities: I have some expertise in dealing with fertility challenges, coping with the pain and stress of infertility diagnoses and the medical treatments. I see both couples and

individuals as they manage this difficult time in their lives, which turns everything upside-down.

 

Fun fact about Lynn: In my private life, my favourite books and movies are autobiographies and biographies – I really

love to see the sense people make of their own lives, and in biography, to follow the interesting trail, which is often so much more adventuresome than fiction.

●Cultural Competency Training in Indigenous Mental Health
     ○Mentorship from Elder Harriet Geddes, Fort Providence, NWT- 2015
     ○Indigenous Canada- Department of Native Studies Online Course- University of Alberta, 2017


Philosophy: I practice from a client-centered, trauma-informed perspective, meaning I view the client as the expert of their own experiences. I encourage clients to share their experiences, explore different perspectives, and tap into their personal intuition in therapy. I ask questions to help explore thoughts, feelings and behaviours that may be causing distress in our lives. The treatment modalities I draw from are Narrative, Strength-Based, Psycho-Educational, Cognitive-Behavioural (CBT), Existential and Attachment Based therapies.



Treatment Specialities: I have been fortunate to have worked in a variety of counselling settings over the last six years, which have helped to shape me into the therapist I am today. I began my journey working with adolescents in residential settings, who struggled with mental health
challenges such as childhood trauma, anxiety, depression or addiction. Following this experience, I moved to an Indigenous Dene community in the Northwest Territories where I worked with adults, youth and families. Here, I gained valuable insight into counselling within a multicultural context.

 Upon settling in Edmonton, I have had the privilege of working at a non-profit agency that supports adults struggling with complex mental and physical health challenges. This role has allowed me to practice from a trauma-informed and harm-reduction lens, allowing for greater compassion and individualized treatment.I am passionate about supporting individuals to overcome hardship in the areas of trauma, grief,
addiction, anxiety and depression, relationship challenges, self-esteem, self-exploration, and life transitions. Working at Pine has allowed me to apply these skills to perinatal mental health; whether that may be support the transitioning into parenthood, overcoming a birth trauma, or experiencing loss.


Fun fact about Rachel: I am a huge animal lover! I have 2 dogs and take them gallivanting through the river valley or mill creek whenever I get the chance!
