Amanda Moule

RTC
Child and Family Counselling, Couple Therapy, Individual Counselling (Associate)

My life has been a long road of being brave and wearing a mask. It has included: pain, self-awareness, responsibility and self-growth. It took 33 years to remove my mask and face the world without that protection. I have survived childhood sexual abuse and a violent assault as a teen. I’ve lived through facing my abusers and in court.

Having struggled with ADHD, anxiety, depression, and marriage problems due to my traumas, I feel I can be a safe place for others. I have done the messy healing of my traumas. I know what it takes. And now, as a counsellor, I can help others to heal.

Amy Anzinger

RPCc
Couple Therapy, Individual Counselling (Associate)

I’ve always been interested in what makes people tick. After watching Kiss the Girls with Morgan Freeman, I knew I wanted to be a Forensic Psychologist. That didn’t happen. However, I stayed connected to my passion. I studied psychology formally and informally, which helped with my own growth and understanding of myself and those around me. I identified my triggers and reactions and learned to work through them. Building compassion for self and others. Allowing me to overcome the environment I grew up in. Using my years of study, I can help others in a straightforward and easy-to-understand way, enabling their self-growth to happen much faster than mine.

My journey into counseling was born from personal struggles navigating through the depths of complex trauma. This experience ignited my passion for helping others on their healing path, propelling me into the counseling field. It’s this personal journey that fuels my commitment to aiding individuals in their quest for healing and empowerment. I believe deeply in creating spaces where voices are heard, experiences are validated, and strengths are celebrated.

Utilizing a trauma-informed approach, I integrate empathy, understanding, and a safe, non-judgmental environment into my counseling practice. This unique approach forms the foundation for a therapeutic journey focused on healing and growth, tailored to each individual’s needs.

As a counselor, clients can expect a safe and supportive space where their healing journey unfolds. I guide individuals through life’s transitions, offering personalized support aligned with their values, fostering inner resilience, and empowering them towards fulfillment.

My core values include empathy, authenticity, continuous growth, and resilience. These values permeate my personal life and inform my work as a counselor, ensuring a compassionate and authentic approach to supporting others’ healing.

I am a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor (RTC) with the Association of Cooperative Counselling Therapists of Canada (ACCT). This credential represents my dedication to professional development and my commitment to providing high-quality care to those I counsel.

My journey into counseling was ignited by the upheaval caused by the pandemic, which led to a significant shift in my career path. As COVID-19 shuttered my event business, I encountered adversity and uncertainty. However, within this challenging period, I found an opportunity for reinvention and discovered my passion for counseling. This experience of overcoming adversity and finding opportunity in adversity fuels my commitment to aiding individuals in their quest for healing and empowerment and life transitions. I was able to transition my career trajectory by pursuing counseling, symbolizing my resilience and adaptability amidst challenging circumstances. This shift allowed me to discover my true calling in aiding individuals on their healing and journey through transitions.

Beyond counseling, I’m an avid animal and nature lover. From caring for a magnificent Great Dane in the past to now being the proud mother of a rescued Chihuahua mix I

named Queso, animals have a special place in my heart. Queso manages to rule the house despite her small size, teaching me valuable lessons about tenacity and unconditional love every day. I spend as much time as I can outdoors hiking, skiing, snowboarding and I especially love the ocean. So when I’m not counselling you’ll usually find me outdoors with Queso!

Maggy Boucher

RTC
Child and Family Counselling, Individual Counselling (Associate)

As a counsellor, I use my life experience to connect with my clients. I have lived my own transformation. I learned that the path forward is sometimes tricky and filled with uncertainty. I have always sensed a higher power supporting me. Connecting to this higher power has allowed me to give up my past anxious and frenetic controlling behaviours. I believe my clients find me for a reason, and there is a purpose behind them seeking help from me—so I answer the call, and I show up to support. I encourage others to see the light, the gift, the beauty within themselves.

Marion Baker

MTC
Counselling (with a Sr. Associate)

Marion is a phenomenal relationship counsellor, and if you are looking to take your relationship to a stronger and deeper level she is the one you want to work with.

After decades of thinking that the way to happiness is working hard to change my life circumstances, I was at the point of burnout. I finally went on a transformational journey that took me through inner change—my real awakening. I was able to let down my guard, work through my guilt and pain and be my real, authentic self, which ACTUALLY led to a change in life circumstances that included my happiness. I’m good at helping people access their subconscious messaging, let go of guilt and pain and re-acquaint themselves with their true feelings and instincts.

I believe that life can have its ups and downs, and that we may find ourselves in darkness – a place where we feel completely lost and alone. I have been there and know that place too well. In my own life, dealing with narcissistic abuse, and bullying from an early age I have allowed my challenges to be my greatest lessons. Through my journey of healing, I have come to value the importance of being there for others. My intention as a counsellor is to be of simple service, a supportive hand in reach because we all need that from time to time.

This world is filled with many different facets that can end up contributing to how you experience life. It can be difficult to find the right guidance or support needed. I have a very humble approach to counselling. A relationship between you and I means giving you a safe and supportive energetic environment where there is no hierarchy involved of counsellor and client. Rather, it is an experience of non-judgmental conversation, allowing you to authentically express yourself and seek a more positive direction in your life.

Along with being a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor, I have obtained my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and Double Minor in Criminology and Philosophy. The combination of my degree and certification as a trauma informed counsellor has given me deep insight and knowledge in understanding the complexity of being human. I focus on how the mind and body are connected and what the central nervous system experiences through various life events. This knowledge and experience enables me to provide counselling from a deep perspective to support you towards healing.

Outside of counselling, I am a deep and curious soul. I am spiritual and like to be in nature, especially by the water. I like to go for walks to small coffee shops. I also like to stay active, such as, kickboxing, running, and hiking.

Rebecca Helps

RTC
Counselling (with a Sr. Associate)

I grew up thinking people didn’t want me around and that I was fundamentally flawed. I developed walls to protect myself by keeping people at bay. People can’t reject you if you don’t let them get close. This left me alone, exhausted, anxious, depressed and afraid. I knew I had to do something, and in taking a leap of faith to heal myself, I started my journey to become a counsellor. Having broken down my walls and healed my wounds, I want to help other people to do the same. To find their way out of their dark and lonely places and into a more friendly world.
