Contact Jennie:

Jennie (she/her) is a queer, cisgender, white settler woman who provides private counselling/therapy services for individuals who are located on the stolen, ancestral, and traditional territories of the Indigenous and First Nations Peoples across British Columbia.

For the past eight years Jennie has worked and volunteered in feminist and 2SLGBTQIA+ communities. Jennie now works with youth and adult clients to support and explore challenges related to neurodivergence, mental health, identity, trauma, sexual orientation, gender identity, well-being, relationships, and confidence. Many of Jennie’s clients are formally diagnosed or self-identified Autistic and/or ADHD, and many are members of 2SLGBTQIA+ communities.

Jennie’s approach is mainly grounded in mindfulness and incorporates acceptance and commitment therapy, cognitive behavioural therapy, emotion-focused therapy and somatic experiencing. Jennie works from a trauma-informed, strengths-focused, and neurodiversity perspective approach to support individuals with their therapeutic goals.

Jennie has a Master of Social Work from the University of British Columbia and a Bachelor of Social Work from the University of Victoria.

Jennie is set up as a service provider with the BC MCFD Autism Funding program and is able to bill the ministry directly for family counselling services that use this funding. Please reach out to Jennie directly if you would like to set this up.


Individual Counselling: $140 per 50 minute session, covered by some private insurance plans. Direct billing to Autism Funding available.
