Jordana, a longtime educator and youth worker, recently graduated with a Masters of Counselling Psychology. She has teamed up with Ciel in the transition between completing her graduate studies and embarking on her professional path as a registered clinical counsellor. Her approach is strength-based, open-minded, and authentic.
Jordana has worked extensively with people of diverse ages, abilities, and backgrounds. Her counselling approach is highly adaptable to each person’s specific needs. Working with teens, youth, and young adults is one of her specialites; another is family counselling with parents and children. Post partum concerns are another area of interest for Jordan. With a focus on encouragement, Jordana believes that wellness is deeply tied to feelings of connectedness and to community engagement. She works with clients to build resiliency and resources, to restore self-empowerment, and to find an increasing sense of fulfillment.
