My name is Jenny Ann and I am a Registered Provisional Psychologist. I have a Masters in Counselling Psychology from McGill University and I speak fluently in both English and French. People usually describe me as someone who is genuine and easy to approach. I enjoy making people feel at ease, which allows them to be themselves around me. I may look young, although I am not — I am just grateful for my genes. I may seem unexperienced as I only graduated from my Masters back in 2017, but I can assure you that I have valuable experiences through volunteering, internships, and paid positions. I have worked extensively with teens and adults with clinical problems such as anxiety, depression, problems with relationships and assertiveness, suicidality, grief, and other relevant presenting issues.

Who Am I?
Something else that I would like to share with you is that it took me a while to figure out what I wanted to do in life, but deep down I always wanted to do something within the helping field. I tried nursing for a bit – however it wasn’t for me. Career counselling was appealing to me for many reasons, for instance I could help others deal with certain struggles that I had personally encountered myself. Career counselling was what attracted me to the Counselling Psychology Masters program at McGill at first, as graduate students are taught both personal and career counselling. As my curiosity and interest grew bigger and bigger towards psychotherapy, this led me to gradually start falling in love with it. Today, I am proud to call myself a Registered Provisional Psychologist and to do what I enjoy most, and that is to help people.
Working With Me
Helping people for me is to provide active listening and making sure that the person I am helping feels validated and understood. I try to provide an environment that is warm, non-judgmental, and that allows room for growth. By working together collaboratively, I can help you create change and generate a process that is not stagnant, but rather flowing.
I am looking forward to meeting you and embarking in this journey together.
