Our Interns

Jennifer Lynd

BA, MACP (in progress)

My primary goal as a therapist is to become a trusted and helpful companion on your journey to improved mental health.  With experience as a crisis response worker and a yoga teacher, I use a calm, holistic and collaborative approach to counselling.  Together we will explore your individual circumstances in order to identify and eliminate barriers that are preventing you from becoming your best self.  

In a compassionate and caring manner, I will help you connect with your inner strengths while offering skill development for better managing anxiety, stress, depression, grief and other life challenges.  During our time together, you will enhance skills to self-regulate intense emotions and reduce unhealthy coping mechanisms, allowing you to more fully engage in life with increased self-acceptance and enjoyment.
