My Story and Approach
Hi there! My name is Jolene Siemens (she/her) and I have been working with children and families for over 20 years in various capacities as a teacher, behaviour strategist, and now as a Registered Psychologist. I have a deep commitment to supporting those who are navigating life’s challenges with empathy and compassion.
If you are experiencing anxiety, grief, stress, trauma, or are struggling with parenting, I will meet and honour where you are at in your journey and move forward with you. My style is empathetic and creative, and I will treat you with dignity and grace. Whatever the case may be, we will work together to uncover goals, strategies, and the inner resources that you have within yourself to keep taking each step forward. The modalities I use are Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Mindfulness Based practices, and EMDR (eye movement desensitization reprocessing).
When I work with you, I will help you feel empowered by uncovering and effectively using your own unique abilities and attributes. I am not just an observer of this journey, but a fellow traveller. I also offer
psycho-educational assessments for children and youth and I communicate the assessment
results in a way that is easy to understand and includes strategies that can be applied in the
classroom and at home.
I look very forward to meeting you!
