Jenna Jarvis - Counsellor
“When you say something you’re going through is hard right now, I’m going to start with believing that”- notesfromyourtherapist:instagram
I’ve been working with children and youth for the last 10 years in a variety of different setting including daycares, schools, mental health organizations, foster families, and group homes. After connecting with hundreds of young people and their parents and caregivers, I’ve developed a unique way of building rapport through humor and vulnerability.
After completing my Bachelor’s of Social Work Degree through the University of Regina, I knew I wanted to continue with counselling and grow roots in this field. It’s a profession where personal evolution and growth is mandatory, as well as a profession that gives me the opportunity to connect with people, to hear their stories, and to collaborate in helping you live your best life, whatever that looks like.
I believe that practicing through a trauma-informed lens is of upmost importance, where safety is foundational. My practice is informed by polyvagal theory, brain development, and somatic approaches to healing. Aside from these things, I am passionate about practicality, mindfulness, gentle movement, and creative approaches to surviving/thriving in our bodies, homes, community, and world.
