Gillian's journey to becoming a counsellor began in her undergraduate years when she completed a degree in Psychology at Memorial University of Newfoundland. During this time, she developed an interest in human behaviour; particularly what motivates us and what influences behaviour change. In 2001, she moved to Waterloo to complete her Master's in Health and Gerontology; focusing on aging, dementia, and life transitions from the perspective of the entire family circle.

Prior to returning to school to complete a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology, Gillian spent more than 15-years in healthcare working with, and advocating for, patients and families. Gillian has experience working in diverse sectors including; community care, long-term care, and acute care. She believes strongly in the right of each individual to be an integral part of their health care team; care is planned and delivered with the patient, not for the patient. This philosophy of engagement has continued with her approach to counselling, where Gillian commits to a client-centered style, taking into consideration everyone's unique experiences, cultures, and beliefs.

Gillian will create a safe and supportive space for you to share your story, and work toward your goal. Gillian approaches each client with a trauma-informed and culturally responsive lens and draws from interventions including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), Existential, and Person-Centered.
