    Are you looking for happiness, fulfillment, better relationships, or peace of mind? Is anxiety and depression getting in the way of your dreams for the future? Are you feeling “stuck” and not sure of away forward? I want you to know that you are not alone in your journey. I am committed to providing a safe space where your stories can be heard with compassion and respect. Hi, I’m Wendy and welcome to Meaningfully Connected Counselling and Psychotherapy. As a retired member of the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF), I offer a wealth of life experience, adding to my clinical knowledge. During my time in the CAF, I experienced stories of addiction, relationship breakdown, and PTSD, which led me to change careers and help people through a counselling lens. As each person shows up with their own unique experiences, I use a variety of tools and techniques to best suit your needs. I draw from a variety of modalities that include Internal Family Systems, Narrative, Polyvagal Theory, Cognitive Behavioural Theory, Dialectical Behavioural Theory, Acceptance Theory, Solution Focused Therapy, Gottman Method, and Emotionally Focused Therapy. Additionally, I include mindfulness and somatic approaches into treatment plans, drawing from my yoga and mediation teacher trainings. Currently, I offer individual counselling to adults 17 years or older and couples counselling. My areas of interest include shame, guilt, anxiety, depression, stress, grief, trauma, crisis, acceptance of physical/neurological disabilities, and interpersonal relationships. With that said, I understand that change is difficult but believe that micro-steps forward will lead to big results.“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” Lao Tzu
