Approach Description: My approach to therapy is grounded in compassion, authenticity, and collaboration. I believe that every person is unique and requires an individualized approach to therapy that meets their specific needs and goals. I work from a strength-based, trauma-informed, and relational approach that prioritizes safety and building a strong therapeutic relationship. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is a key component of healing and growth and strive to create a safe and non-judgmental space for my clients to explore their concerns. In my practice, I draw from a range of evidence-based approaches, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Somatic Therapy. I also integrate creative and expressive arts-based interventions into my work, recognizing the power of the arts in healing and self-expression. Ultimately, my goal as a therapist is to help my clients develop the skills, insight, and self-awareness they need to live more fulfilling and meaningful lives. I aim to empower my clients to take an active role in their own healing and work collaboratively with them to develop personalized strategies for achieving their goals.

Jennifer Hrstic Practice Description
Hello there, I'm Jennifer Hrstic, a trauma and EMDR therapist based in Calgary, Canada. As a certified Canadian counsellor with a Master's degree in Counselling Psychology, I work primarily with adults who are struggling with trauma, fatigue, chronic illness, or pain to work towards healing, wellness, and meaningful connected relationships. I understand that life can be challenging and overwhelming at times, leading to anxiety, burnout, or feeling stuck. Sometimes, it may even become difficult to respond to others in healthy ways. That's why I offer online therapy to help people find joy, self-compassion, and confidence. Together, we can explore and process your thoughts and feelings so you can navigate what's happening now and gain traction on where you want to go. I use a holistic and individualized approach throughout the therapeutic process to accommodate each client’s unique experience, needs, and goals for therapy. As a compassionate, genuine, and warm counsellor, I practice from a strength-based, trauma-informed relational approach. I aim to provide safe, non-judgmental support so you can reach your goals, heal from trauma, increase wellness, and have healthier relationships in your life. I specialize in helping caregivers, first responders, veterans, and helping professionals struggling with occupational stress or trauma to reconnect with themselves, their lives, and their relationships. I also work with families impacted by child welfare (bio families, kinship, adoption, foster care), and with Indigenous individuals and families who have been affected by intergenerational trauma, residential schools, colonization, and oppressive systems. If you're feeling anxious, burnt out, or overwhelmed, it's time to feel respected, validated, and empowered. I offer a complimentary 20-minute consultation and flexible scheduling, including evenings and weekends. Let's work together to manage stress, build coping strategies, and maximize your well-being.
