Jennifer Baker, MEd, RCC, PMH-C


In my practice, I believe that each client is the expert in their own lives, and that it is not my job to decide for my clients what is best for them. My goal is to come alongside each client to support them in learning how to resolve, manage, or accept the various challenges that life brings. I aim to create a warm, judgment-free professional relationship where clients may feel safe to explore their thoughts, feelings, memories, relationships, and behaviours more deeply and authentically, with the overall goal in mind of creating lasting change for a more balanced and resourceful life.

I draw from a number of different approaches in my sessions, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT); Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT); Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT); Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) for trauma; mindfulness; and motivational interviewing. I adopt a trauma-informed lens in my work, and seek to work compassionately and collaboratively with my clients, referencing their best judgment in planning the best course of action for their therapy.

I have experience and training supporting individuals struggling with the following:

- Maternal Mental Health (see additional site page)
