  • grief and loss

  • anger management
  • self-esteem and self-worth
  • spirituality
  • life balance and transitions

  • healthy relationships
  • family violence
  • infidelity
  • separation and divorce
  • self-harm and suicide intervention

Angie believes that people are the experts of their own lives and that the human connection is essential to the therapeutic process. Therefore, her approach to counselling is to combine a relational, client-centered counselling style with evidence-based therapeutic techniques. Guiding her work are a variety of theories and modalities, including solution-focused, cognitive-behavioural, feminist, narrative, and strength-based. Angie strives to provide an environment of safety and comfort where clients feel supported and empowered to reach their goals.

Angie earned her Master of Education in Educational Psychology and Special Education from the University of Saskatchewan with a focus on School and Counselling Psychology.
