Maddie – Registered Clinical Counsellor
Maddie believes in connection and it being the foundation of strong and meaningful relationships. She believes everyone has a story that is worthy of being shared with someone who genuinely wants to listen. Maddie completed her bachelor’s degree in psychology at the University of British Columbia and completed her master’s degree in clinical counselling at Yorkville University. She brings her educational background into sessions but also strongly believes in sitting down with a cup of tea and just chatting, because sometimes we just want to feel validated, seen, and heard.
Maddie has worked with kids for over 12 years in many different facets including running summer camps, talking about body image and self-esteem, anxiety, physical activity, childhood trauma, and more. She currently also works at the Child Advocacy Centre as a sexual assault trauma therapist for kids. She has experience and currently works with people of intimate partner violence.
Maddie works in a non-judgemental, empathetic way that offers people a place to feel their emotions in whatever way that comes up. She also shows up as herself and encourages you to do the same. Come as you are, you are always welcome. Maddie has an innate way of holding space for her clients.
Growing up, Maddie played competitive basketball and soccer, held high academic standards for herself and therefore understands the pressure that comes with all of that, from others and from oneself. She also had to abruptly stop her basketball career due to an injury and can relate to the identity loss that comes with that.
