Jacquie is a non-Indigenous ally who has been working with Indigenous and non-indigenous clients since 2007. She completed her Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology and has focused her work on supporting youth and their families experiencing concurrent addiction and mental health disorders. Jacquie puts great importance on meeting clients where they are at and recognizing that we all have our own journeys to wellness.
Background/Counselling Framework Utilised: I utilize an approach that encompasses aspects of cognitive behavioural therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, art therapy and emotion-focused family therapy. I recognize that all clients are individuals, and while some will benefit from one modality exclusively, others benefit from a more eclectic approach. Regardless of which framework is used, it is always important to collaboratively establish goals to ensure that our work together has direction and purpose. When I have the opportunity to work face-to-face with clients, I love using sandtray therapy, especially with adults and older adolescents.
