About Caroline

Hi there, I’m Caroline! I am a counsellor here at Cedarwood, and I am currently completing my master’s degree in counselling. While I am just finishing my education, I have been working and volunteering in field of mental health for the last eight years. I have worked in various treatment and support settings, assisting individuals from all backgrounds with different kinds of problems affecting their well-being.

As a counsellor, I work with people who are experiencing a variety of challenges and help them to determine and meet their individual goals. This might include managing depression and anxiety, improving relationships with others and self, navigating life transitions and challenges, creating a more enjoyable and fulfilling life, and/or coping with stressors of all kinds.

Regardless of what brings you to counselling, a safe, caring, and trusting therapeutic relationship is at the heart of my work with each of my clients. I provide a supportive, non-judgmental, and confidential space for you to feel heard and acknowledged – where you can feel comfortable to explore your concerns, thoughts, behaviours, experiences, and options – as we work together to help you move towards your goals. How I approach our work together will depend on your individual needs and desires, as I draw from and integrate evidence-based practices to help meet these goals.

Outside of the office, I try to spend as much time as possible on the water or in the mountains. This is where my soul feels most at home. To me, life is all about relationships and connection – connection with others, with my self, and with nature. This is one of the many reasons that I love my work as a counsellor, because I genuinely love the opportunity to be able to connect with and learn about my clients, and to help them better connect with themselves and the world around them.

You can visit my website to learn more about me and my approach. I am looking forward to getting to know you!
