CLEAR LIGHT COUNSELLING

Do you feel stuck? Are you distressed? Do you feel alone in your struggles? If you are looking for understanding and support, I am here to offer insight, healing, and growth. I draw from over 25 years of experience in working with teens and their families to understand the challenges that you face in overcoming trauma, conflict, anxiety and loss. I know how to help build understanding and resilience for dealing with life's challenges.

ABOUT ME

Ruby Willems, BA, BEd, M.A. (Counselling Psychology), RCC

I have a passion for helping others heal. My approach is family systems, trauma informed and strengths-based. I used a wide range of modalities and have specialized in CBT (cognitive based therapy), DBT (dialectical based therapy) and "Rewind Technique" for healing trauma . The focus of my academic work and clinical practice is in helping individuals manage and overcome anxiety and depression.

STRENGTHS BASED APPROACH

Support That Makes a Difference

I believe that anyone at any age can build the resilience that they need to overcome challenges  by finding and believing in their own inner strength. I like to work alongside individuals to help them find their own wisdom rather than handing out advice.

CAREER COACHING SESSION

Paths to Post-Secondary

Do you feel lost when it comes to discovering how your interests and strengths will lead to your future? I have the tools and technology to help you find a post-secondary path that is just right for you. I am certified to provide personality and career testing with professional assessment tools.
