OUR FEATURED TALENT

Connie Millar, M.Ed., RCC
I am honoured by the opportunity to offer you a safe space to express and explore your feelings, as well as possible solutions. As you struggle to make sense of the circumstances you find yourself in, I will hold hope for you until you are once again able to hold it yourself.
I am a person-centred therapist who highly values the therapeutic connection, seeks to highlight strengths and views painful life experiences (when processed aptly) as a catalyst for personal growth. I hold a Master’s Degree in Counselling Psychology from the University of British Columbia and I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors.

Adrienne Johnson, M.A., M.Div, RCC, CCC

I am passionate about helping clients who are facing challenges in transitions, relationships, or who are exploring questions about their life’s meaning and purpose. I also have experience working with anxiety, depression, and stress management. I approach my work with warmth, inclusion and open-mindedness. I believe that each person is the expert in their own life, and that my job as a counsellor is to help facilitate each persons exploration of their own unique skills, strengths, and story.

I use a holistic approach, and draw on a variety of theoretical approaches and techniques, tailoring my work to each persons individual needs to help them create positive and lasting change. I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor (#6913) with the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors and a Canadian Certified Counsellor (#6710) with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association.

cg2Jennifer Hammersmark, Ph.D., R.C.C.  I am the owner of The Counselling Group and I have been doing this work for over 20 years — and I love it! It is the best job in the world. Helping people heal, getting them through tough times, or helping them achieve their next goal…it is all very rewarding. I have had other careers before this one, and my childhood had it’s fair share of challenges. All of this comes together to help you — whether it be myself personally, or connecting you with one of the great therapists I partner with, my commitment is still the same: “Let all those who come leave better and happier” Mother Teresa.
