Hello! Welcome to my page. My name is Chantelle (she/her), and I am a Registered Psychotherapist (Qualifying). Through my work experience, I have come to realize that my passion lies in helping others. I have worked and volunteered with a variety of diverse populations, such as domestic violence victims, teens with mental health and substance challenges, seniors with Alzheimer’s disease, and children with autism and ADHD. These experiences have been valuable in leading me to where I am today.

Outside of my passion for helping others, I also enjoy spending time with my family, friends, and my dog, Toby. I love the outdoors and being out in the sun.

In my free time, I like to read, paint, and watch scary movies. I also really enjoy playing sports such as soccer and volleyball and consider it a significant interest in my life. My favorite hobby is traveling to new countries, as I have a passion for learning about new cultures, trying new foods, and meeting new people.

At the core of my approach, lies a firm belief and value in collaboration. I acknowledge that each client is the expert in their own life experiences and encourage a curious exploration of thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. My therapeutic style is characterized by a blend of evidence-based techniques tailored to the unique needs of each client. As your counselor, I am dedicated to getting to know you as a person, understanding your values, and identifying your goals to provide you with a personalized counseling experience.

In my approach, I believe that the therapeutic journey is not just about unpacking negative experiences and healing wounds; it is about fostering personal growth and resilience. I create a safe and supportive space for individuals to explore and navigate their emotional well-being, empowering them to reach their full potential.
