Linnea (she/her/hers) strives to create a safe, comfortable, and collaborative environment to enable clients to feel empowered and true to themselves. She believes that for all people to heal, counselling should be culturally-sensitive, trauma-informed, and respectful. Linnea works holistically, considering how the many factors of one’s life interplay to affect overall well-being. She is naturally curious about other people and feels honoured to witness people’s stories and to work with her clients. Some of the therapeutic modalities that Linnea draws from include Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioural Therapy (DBT), Person-Centred Therapy, Somatic-based therapies, and Intersectional Feminism.
Linnea’s experience includes working as a college counsellor, substance use recovery centre counsellor, project manager and volunteer coordinator at a harm reduction organization, intake at a women’s shelter. Linnea holds a Master of Counselling Psychology degree from Adler University and is a Registered Clinical Counsellor through the BCACC.
