Chantelle's Favourite Therapy Quote:

“Staying vulnerable is a risk we have to take if we want to experience connection”
-Brene Brown

My practice is focused on empowering clients to make informed decisions about their own change while providing a compassionate and supportive space. As a person-centered therapist, I seek to enhance one’s quality of life and encourage clients to create their own solutions to situations as they define them; inviting new ways of thinking without imposing one’s own views and to emphasize and allow personal choice and control over one’s own problems while also exploring personal goals and values. I believe humans have the capacity to enhance self-efficacy, confidence, and one’s own belief that they can achieve their goals.

Practice Areas

I provide individual therapy for adolescents (13-17yrs) and adults presenting with a wide range of challenges including anxiety, depression, PTSD, complex trauma, self-esteem, interpersonal relationships, resiliency, emotion regulation, parenting support as well as other life transitional issues.

Education & Experience

I am a Registered Psychotherapist in good standing with the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario. I hold a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology degree from Yorkville University and a Bachelor of Arts in Criminology from Carleton University. I have previously worked in community settings supporting pregnant/parenting youth as well as part of a multidisciplinary team focusing on adolescent anxiety. For the last 3 years I have been focusing on developing knowledge and skills in the area of complex trauma (CPTSD) and continue to engage in continuing educating opportunities.

Therapeutic Approach

The Neuroaffective Relational Model (NARM) is a somatically oriented approach designed to heal the lasting impacts of complex trauma. The effects of attachment/developmental trauma may impact self-image/self-esteem, self-regulation and the capacity to have meaningful relationships. This can show up in many different ways, for example, people pleasing, highly critical of self, anxiety, depression, fear of abandonment, perfectionism, anger, burnout, difficulty trusting others, hypervigilance, substance abuse, disordered eating, self-sabotage, chronic pain and intergenerational patterns of abuse. NARM offers healing by addressing both the mind-body connection and relational dynamics (within self and others) so that individuals can support themselves to heal and reclaim their lives.

About Chantelle

For the past 20 years I have been able to share my passion for movement with my dance students. Teaching dance allows me to express myself creatively and brings additional fulfillment in my life. I also enjoy travelling with my family, crafting with my daughters and curling up in a chair enjoying an afternoon tea.
