I’m Ellen


Hi, I’m Ellen. My passion for mental health comes from my own life experience, and a deep sense of empathy for others. With a background in social services spanning many years, I am a Certified Canadian Counsellor committed to helping couples and individuals cultivate confidence, enhance communication, and discover purposeful living through my counselling and coaching practice.

For Individuals

Therapy Icon

Individual Counselling

My counselling approach focuses on identifying and celebrating personal strengths, learning to work with difficult emotions, and making a commitment to meaningful changes that will help you be the person you want to be. While I enjoy working with a range of issues and personalities, my areas of specialty are anxiety, attachment, relationship issues, and self-esteem. I also have experience with ADHD, codependency, depression, addictions, personality disorders, and stress.

Wellness Coaching Icon

Life Coaching

While counselling focuses on past and current mental health, coaching sessions are geared towards facilitating personal growth in various aspects of life, including relationships, physical well-being, work-life balance, and career development. These sessions are goal-oriented and provide ongoing accountability, ideas, and inspiration.

Youth Counselling

Counselling services for adolescents and teens provide a safe space for exploration and growth. Utilizing diverse interventions, I aim to bolster confidence and resilience for teens navigating life's complexities.

For Couples

Loving Couple

Couples Counselling

Couples counselling sessions are tailored towards deepening understanding, fostering effective communication, and nurturing resilient connections.
