Connie knows first-hand that reaching out for support isn’t easy. With a warm, compassionate and intuitive style, she allows clients to be fully seen, heard and supported with tools and strategies to continue the work outside of sessions.
Before becoming a professional counsellor, she’s walked a lot of paths. From experiencing loss/grief – losing loved ones at a young age, experiencing divorce, and coping with a parent with addiction. Then changing careers (several times) and becoming a busy mom of 3 and being faced with a cancer diagnosis – not once, but twice. She really does know how stressful, mentally and physically overwhelming it all can be.
That’s why she moved into the helping profession. She understands how life transitions can be very lonely (even when you’re surrounded by the ones you love). “I believe no one should have to navigate through life’s challenges alone. Through non-judgemental conversation I’ll help promote positive shifts and experiences for you.”
Connie works with youth and adults focusing on grief, loss, anxiety, and stress (including PTSD) which may be a result from a medical diagnosis like cancer, from unexpected life transitions such as divorce or early childhood experiences. Using a values-based, person-centered approach she helps clients understand how their past attachments & beliefs influence them today. She believes there’s not a one-size fits all counselling, so she may use several parts of different therapies based on my client’s needs, with modalities such as ACT, CBT, Narrative, and Mindfulness, while incorporating Somatic as well as Solution Focused Brief Therapy and Brainspotting.
She brings you her vast array of business and personal life experiences, as well as her training, an ongoing love of learning, and a passion for connection, to truly understand what you may be going through.
