Lynette is an extremely caring and highly skilled therapist with 10+ years of experience. When you sit with Lynette you will experience her as open, genuine, sensitive as well as astute in her observations. She is adept at holding her client’s painful story and gently prompting it to unfold, yet always intrigued and curious by the treasures of resources, sometimes dormant, inside each and every person. Lynette’s keen self-awareness of her own story and loss invites honesty that life is not fair, but relationships alone inspire hope.
Lynette primarily works with adolescents, individuals and couples. She draws from a variety of counselling theories but has a natural bend towards Person-Centered Psychotherapy. Lynette is trained in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) and EFT (Emotion Focused Therapy). She also utilizes sandtray and art therapy.
Crystal has always been a people person. Right from when she was a little girl, she enjoyed spending time listening to people’s stories. Most of her adult life she has spent as an accountant. However, she found that her true passion was always sitting with her clients and not behind a computer, as she found her relationships with her clients weren’t always about numbers.
She is married and has two teenage children. She enjoys spending time with her family, reading, travelling, and going to the lake. Crystal is thankful for every opportunity to learn through extra courses and involvement in memberships, committees, and boards, enabling her to be a part of facilitating change and growth in her community.
Crystal completed her degree in the Master of Arts Counselling program at Providence University College & Theological Seminary. She is a Canadian Certified Counsellor (C.C.C.) through the Canadian Counselling & Psychotherapy Association and a member of the International OCD Foundation. She has also taken additional coursework in Child and Adolescent Therapy and Psychopharmacology.
Crystal has a natural ability to put her clients she is sitting with at ease. She recognizes how important the therapeutic relationship is and is not there to “fix” clients but to journey with them on a path to healing. She is interested in working with a variety of clients, including children and adolescents.
Hummingbird Spirit Animal
The hummingbird spirit animal symbolizes the enjoyment of life and lightness of being. Those who have the hummingbird as a totem are invited to enjoy the sweetness of life, lift up negativity wherever it creeps in and express love more fully in their daily endeavors. This fascinating bird is capable of the most amazing feats despite its small size, such as traveling great distances or being able to fly backwards. By affinity with the hummingbird, those who have this bird as totem may be encouraged to develop their adaptability and resiliency while keeping a playful and optimistic outlook.
