Claire Wilde, M.Ed., R. Psych

Registered Psychologist and Founder

Sometimes we hit a place in our life journey where we realize we aren't where we want to be. In these moments, sitting down with someone to sort through where we actually want to be, and then working through the issues getting in the way of us reaching these goals can allow us to transform our lives. Whether the issues are within your relationship, work, family, or things that happened in your past Claire would be honored to work with you to live your best life. Claire has worked with clients to heal trauma through EMDR, to identify patterns of beliefs that lead to depression and anxiety and low self-esteem. She teaches clients relaxation strategies, and how to identify unhealthy patterns in relationships with spouses, co-workers and family members. Claire also provides clients with the opportunity to grieve losses. Since reaching your counselling goal is most likely to occur when you are working with a counsellor who is the right fit for you, Claire provides a 30 minute "initial consultation" free of charge. This will provide you with an opportunity to see if she is the right counsellor for you.
