Jessie is a registered clinical counsellor who offers:

*   Short-term counselling to couples and individuals (16 years and older), who are experiencing a variety of concerns, including depression, anxiety, OCD, relationship difficulties, family of origin issues, grief and loss, self-esteem/self-worth, body-image, eating disorders, current or past abuse and stress management.

She has worked at the Richmond Olympic Oval High Performance Centre and with multiple university athletic departments. Her experience involves working with athletes and teams in over 10 sports. Areas of focus often include performance anxiety, motivation, confidence, goal setting, coach relationship difficulties, retirement and injury related concerns.

This approach helps clients develop their own resources to grow in understanding themselves, to work through areas they feel stuck and to better cope with the difficulties they are facing. Jessie draws from Emotion-Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, modified Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy.

She received her MA in Counselling Psychology from Trinity Western University and she is currently completing her PhD in Counselling Psychology at the University of British Columbia. Upon completing her PhD she will seek registration as a psychologist with the College of Psychologists of BC.
