"What I love about my work is that, although when I initially meet people, they are often at difficult places in their life, through the process of counselling, I get to be a part of the positive changes and be a witness to their journey of incredible courage, hope and transformation. I feel honoured that my clients allow me to walk with them through their journey. "

Emmy Kuypers, BA, BSW, RSW

Emmy is a registered Social Worker with the Alberta College of Social Workers completed with the University of Regina.  She has experience working in family counselling, at risk youth, crisis intervention, and anxiety and depression.  Emmy believes in a collaborative relationship between the client and the therapist based on mutual respect.  While she brings her counselling expertise to the helping process, she believes the client brings their own expertise in their life, their life experiences and where they are looking to create a difference.

Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations.
