Are you struggling and wanting to overcome challenges in your life and build a better life? Do you want more than you are getting from life right now?

My name is Leona Westra, and I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor that is focused on helping clients with trauma, chronic pain (or other health difficulties), and grief. I wish to work with you to help you get to a better place where you can overcome the difficulties you are experiencing. I will meet with you where you are and at the pace that is right for you while respecting your personality, experiences, values, culture, and environment. I believe that the best healing happens when it is done with respect to the core essence of who you are.

I believe that you are able to rise above your past and current experiences. We will work together on the goals you want to work on. I will bring my experience, knowledge, and skills to your experiences. You will bring your knowledge of what is happening in your life, and we will work together to get you to a better understanding of what is happening and use my knowledge and skills to enable you to improve your life.

I work by bringing you an understanding of how things have affected you in different ways. This can be things that happened in your developmental years or how certain systems (work, society, health care, community, school, family, religion, etc.) have impacted you.

Healing can be hard, but I will be with you as we work together. I will encourage you, validate your experiences, and be honest with you about the process and techniques that I offer to you.

I want to walk with you on this healing journey you are on. Please reach out if you feel that my approach to counselling could benefit you.
