Hello, my name is Jan, and I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with over 20 years of counselling experience. My passion for working with people began at a young age. This passion led me to a career that has focused on mental health, substance use issues, trauma, and teaching.

Over the past 25 years, I have worked in a variety of settings including community services, non-profit agencies, a youth health centre, private practice, schools, and children and family service agencies.
My educational background and experience working with individuals, couples, and families from a variety of backgrounds and ages has helped develop my abilities and integrated therapeutic approach.
Certificates and specialized training include:

I specialize in working with:

My approach to therapy is compassionate and person-centred. I provide a safe, nonjudgmental space where we can work together to create a therapeutic plan that is in line with your values, beliefs, and goals.
Over the past 20 years, I have also provided training for foster parents, social workers, and practitioners. Upon request, I can provide workshops or presentations relating to trauma and parenting, trauma and fostering, substance use related topics, and managing emotional triggers (including “anger management”).
