The Full Story
Hello, my name is Lynnette. As a Certified Canadian Counsellor with over 14 years of counselling experience I specialize in working with children/youth and individual adults. I work from a client centered approach to support the client in an evidence based ethical way. My theoretical approaches involve supporting your current situation via a systems approach, mindfulness and exploring any somatic responses you may be experiencing.
Areas of clinical experience include but are not limited to anxiety, depression, life transitions, relationships, self esteem, grief and stress.
The foundation of my therapeutic work is based on a strong therapeutic relationship. A strong therapeutic relationship provides the opportunity for one to feel safe in order to explore the vulnerable impact of our life experiences, circumstances, thoughts and feelings. I will meet you where you are at and effectively support you in establishing and reaching your therapeutic goals.
In regards to my work with children/youth a typical session will include art and play. These techniques are valuable for creating a comfortable therapeutic environment. Engaging with the child in this way allows for processing to take place in an organic and developmentally appropriate manner.
I look forward to being a part of you or your child’s therapeutic journey
