“Asking For Help Reveals Strength, Not Weakness” — Dr Margie Warrell

“Your value doesn’t decrease based on someone’s inability to see your worth.”

Have you experienced trauma, hopelessness, or lack of validation in your life? Are you overwhelmed, depressed, anxious, or lost? As a counsellor, I focus on gaining an understanding of what is causing your struggles when you tell your story. I attempt to create a place of safety where you can feel comfortable sharing what’s on your heart. Together we’ll explore your past and present to bring awareness and understanding about what is holding you back from a more meaningful and fulfilling life.

Do you wonder who you are and why everyone else seems to thrive but you lag behind? I’ve walked in those places and understand what pain and trauma is about. My experience has given me a unique ability to walk along side you so you can move toward creating a testimony of your healing and empowerment instead of continuing down a path of disappointment and hopelessness. My journey involved much support, counselling, encouragement, and the grace of God in helping me move through my trauma to living triumphantly as an overcomer. You deserve to thrive, to be loved, to know you matter, and to experience inner peace.

Are you a couple or adult members of a family wondering why you are struggling so much? It is a pleasure to work with relationships as together we navigate through conflicts that cause tension or walls that prevent an openness with each other. Often our past experiences expectations that come from a deep place of pain or need. They can cause misunderstandings, defensiveness, and an inability to look at conflicts rationally. Often we interpret other’s actions or conversations through a trauma lens or triggers that cloud our vision. As a counsellor it is satisfying to see each individual within their marriage or family gaining insight and revelation that creates hopeful transformation.

With my professional training and almost two decades of therapeutic experience working with couples, relationships, and individuals I have the tools, knowledge, and skills to journey with you as you seek freedom from self-defeating habits and beliefs, experiences of depression, anxiety, trauma, codependency, and conflict. My counselling approach is interconnected and integrative as I utilize numerous modalities. These include Attachment Theory, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, Christian Counselling, Existential Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy
