Jennifer’s qualifications include both a Registered Psychotherapist (RP) designation and as well as a Canadian Clinical Counsellor designation. Jennifer studied Psychotherapy, Psychology, and Business; she has a master’s degree in counselling psychology. She was a therapeutic counsellor at KW Counselling Services for several years as both a crisis and on-going therapist where she worked to assist individuals in overcoming mood, anxiety, depression, existential concerns, trauma, behaviour, addiction, relationship concerns, and improving emotion management. She also worked as a walk-in mental health clinic at Reach Out Centre for Kids, where she dealt with children, youth and families with immediate mental health concerns.
Jennifer is a client focussed therapist who believes in using outcome measurements in therapy. Using statistically reliable and valid assessments and measurements of outcomes, sessions are then continuously tweaked to ensure that you are getting what you need from the therapeutic process and that you are making progress towards your desired goals.
Jennifer sits on the Canadian ADHD Resource Alliance (CADDRA) Advocacy committee and she has delivered various workshops on different topics including setting up walk-in mental health clinics in remote settings and various ADHD workshops.
