Hi, I’m Jeweley!

 

It is part of the human experience to have ups and downs in life. My passion for being a therapist is holding space for those struggling or navigating through life’s difficulties.

 

As a client centered therapist, it is my goal to provide clients a warm, safe and accepting environment where you can feel comfortable to share your story. Each individual person is unique, and it is important to me to understand all of the aspects of a persons life that make them who they are.

 

Together we will collaboratively develop goals that would be meaningful to you that are realistic, achievable and bring you closer to the life you want to live. During our time together we will develop self-reflection, work through difficult emotions and thoughts, and make use of new coping skills and strategies to restore your sense of wellbeing.

I believe that trust, compassion and validation are the keys to a successful therapeutic relationship. I prefer to meet clients where they are at and walk alongside them in their process of healing.  Empathy is at the core of my work, to genuinely care for each and every client and helping them on their journey to reach their full potential.

 

I utilize a range of evidence-based therapeutic approaches in order to suit clients needs including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Mindfulness, Solution Focused Therapy (SFT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). Along with these different modalities, I work from an attachment-based and trauma informed lens.

 

I would be honoured to guide and support you as we work together to bring about change that is meaningful to you.

  • Depression
