Jennifer McDonald (Nurture Me Counselling) (She/Her)

Counselor/Therapist, Registered Therapeutic Counsellor, Certified Trauma-Informed Coach
Let me pour you a warm cup of coffee or tea and let’s talk. Therapy doesn't have to be scary, uncomfortable or daunting. Life is hard enough, therapy doesn't have to be. I'm here to support you in finding solutions to your pain & conflict and make the changes you want to make in your life, while finding peace & calm in the process. Life is far too short and too precious to have prolonged grief, loss, past traumas, anxiety or ongoing conflict take over. If you have lost someone or something very dear to you either recently or in the past and you are struggling with the difficult and often overwhelming and confusing emotions and feelings that accompany grief, bereavement and loss, please reach out. Perhaps you are trying to find answers in how to more effectively communicate with your partner and bring back more love into your relationship. Or find ways to reduce the amount of fighting and conflict with your parents or other family members. Or perhaps you are struggling with the loss of someone who meant the world to you. I also specialize in working with folks who have experienced narcissistic abuse and are trying to make sense of the conflict, confusion and self doubt and who aren't sure how to move past the trauma of the experience or in how to cope with life with someone who makes you feel like you are never enough. If you are struggling with any of the issues mentioned, please reach out to book a free 20 minute phone or video meet and greet call. The purpose of this call is to get a better feel for how your session may look in working with me, to help answer any questions you may have regarding counselling and to get a better feel for if I might be the right counsellor for you. I offer both in person & online sessions, during the day, evening or on weekends and have 24/7 online scheduling, so it's easier in finding a session time that works for you moving forward. To help avoid playing phone or email tag and waiting for a reply, please head over to my website at to book your free consultation meet and greet phone or video call. I am here to help support you in finding yourself and getting to a place where life feels good again.

Approach Description: I tend to work in a real, human way. This means, I will laugh with you, cry with you but also gently bring your awareness and curiosity to parts that are keeping you stuck in your pain and struggles. Part of this approach comes from healing from my own traumatic experiences, navigating the emptiness after both my parents passed away and learning how to be a more caring and loving partner in my own relationships.
