Jennie is a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying). She transitioned from a career in communications and association management to focus on her passion for working with people. Her past experience emphasized the power of words and its effects on a person, as well as the positive impacts a safe, nonjudgmental space can provide to an individual.
She recognizes life can be unpredictable and overwhelming, at any stage of life. Her approach in therapy is client-focused, guided by the values of compassion, curiosity, humor and gentleness. Jennie’s therapeutic approach draws upon Narrative Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Psychodynamic modality, combined with interventions from Art Based Therapy and Mindfulness Therapy.
Her goal in therapy is to understand the client’s story and narrative. To collaboratively work together, with the client and family, to gain insight, clarity or achieve a specific goal. She believes each person and family possesses the strengths and insights to positively move forward. Areas of focus are anxiety, depression, self-esteem, life transitions as well as building and maintaining relationships.
Outside of work Jennie can be found walking and listening to music. She loves all musical genres and is always open to a song or artist recommendation. She enjoys yoga, reading, tea and spending time with friends and family.
