Certified Canadian Counsellor Courtney (Hooper) MacDonald

unnamed.jpg

Welcome! My name is Courtney.

I am a registered professional member of the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA) with the designation of Canadian Certified Counsellor. I am also working toward becoming a Provisional Psychologist by late fall 2022.

 

Everyone’s life story has chapters that are harder to get through than others. It can be difficult to reach out for support so I want you to know I strive to build a trustworthy therapeutic relationship.
 

I operate on the assumption that my clients are the experts in their own lives. It is from this client-centered and strength-based approach to therapy that I hope to use yours to your advantage.

Together we can work with focus to make a plan that will help you achieve your goals.
 

I have experience using behavioral-based approaches to therapy like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I also value flexibility in my approach to counselling so that I can meet my clients where they are with new tools, resources, and perspectives. So, I also use solution-focused, narrative, and other therapeutic approaches with a trauma informed lens.

Courtney's fees are $120 per hour and she offers a sliding scale.
