Jennifer Pearson, MACP, RP

My expertise as a Registered Psychotherapist comes not only from my education and years of experience in this field, but also from being a parent, and from my own personal journey with various individual and group therapies. I also receive ongoing supervision and consultation from peers and mentors in my field. I would not be the therapist I am today without all of these contributions.

I work collaboratively with my clients to target the primary issues and concerns that brought them into counselling. I tailor my approach to meet their needs and priorities. I remind clients that everything can be broken down into small steps – and small shifts can produce significant change. Life is busy and fast-paced for most of us, so I strive to deliver time-limited and focused interventions. ​​
