Hi there! I’m Jarah, and I am a Registered Counselling Therapist – Candidate.

     Finding the right counsellor can be hard! It can be intimidating and anxiety-inducing. If you’re feeling this way, I want you to know you’re welcome here. Therapy is for all, regardless of what you are experiencing in your life.

     I am a married mother of two and grew up with four siblings. Family dynamics can be challenging to manage. The thoughts may start seeping in “would things be better if I just left?”, “do they love me anymore?”, “I’m asking for too much,” or maybe the voice sounds something more like “it’s not safe here,” “I’m powerless,” “I’m alone,” “my needs don’t matter,” “I’m not enough for them,” or “no one wants me.” These are the lies that tell you that you will never measure up. It’s easy “Stop thinking that way!” but the lies become so strong that they keep us under attack.

     Those thoughts do not dictate who you are! I’ve been there. I have heard and bought into those same lies. Let’s work together to explore what is driving us, we’ll learn to use your resources to your advantage and create the newness you deserve.

     Sometimes we struggle with our intimate relationships, and yet we continue to seek them. We desperately want to be in relationship with one another, but there can be so much pain and hurt by as a result. My passion is working with individuals and families to help rebuild your connections and fight back against the voices that might be driving you. Let’s create safety together.

Teens/Young Adults:

     I love working with teens. I have volunteered with many different youth organizations, worked with youth residents, and studied youth in my undergraduate degree. What I have learned is that being a teen or young adult can suck. My hope is that together we can find ways for you to utilize the tools that you have and make the stresses of life easier to manage.


     I also enjoy exploring issues related to trauma, attachment, and mood disorders. I am a trained SAFE EMDR therapist. EMDR is helpful for many different concerns. This SAFE approach to EMDR incorporates aspects of body-centered psychotherapies and attachment theory to deepen the potential for transformation and healing while creating a space of safety. Through individual therapy, we will explore your strengths and your abilities to thrive. It is difficult to handle some of these problems alone. Joining together in therapy can make goals feel more attainable, we can experience healing, and find the approach to therapy that works best for you!


     From my own experience of living with a large family and having a family of my own, I have found joy in serving those who are living similarly. There are many systems within a family that can be difficult to navigate. I can resonate with how unhealthy dynamics can affect other corresponding relationships. These experiences allow me to see the effectiveness of therapy and pull from interventions that may best serve you and your family. I have received training in Emotion Focused Therapy based in Attachment interventions. This has been helpful for my work with families, father-child relationships, and mother-child relationships.

     You are not broken, and it is not over. You are doing your best for the moment you are in. You can have the skills to overcome this experience. Let’s rise together to maximize the strength of your helpful skills and find new ones to add. I strive to create a space where you can come exactly as you are. I would love to be a part of your journey, to walk alongside you or your family, and experience your story.

     I pull from many different therapeutic modalities, such as emotion-focused therapy, EMDR, gestalt therapy, narrative therapy, cognitive-behavioural therapy, and mindfulness therapy. The approach used is based on who you are and your needs. I approach therapy collaboratively. I’ll bring my experience and knowledge into the room, and you’ll bring yourself and your knowledge because YOU are the expert of your life! Together we will figure out how you would like to experience healing.

I can’t wait to start working with you!


Everyone is Welcome
