Hello, I am Jessica Gill, the founder of Emerald Counselling and Consulting. As a Registered Clinical Counsellor with a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology with Distinction and over a decade of diverse experience in mental health and substance use roles, I'm here to guide you on your path to well-being.
My counselling journey began with a commitment to making a positive impact. With a solid foundation, including a practicum at Simon Fraser University Health and Counseling Services. Throughout my career, I have worked with both adults and youth dealing with substance use and affected clients and its effects. I have also supported Indigenous families in Alberta and British Columbia in partnership with the Ministry of Child and Family Services. In addition, my experience includes working with a health authority and a school district in various roles related to mental health and substance abuse. I bring a wealth of expertise to help you navigate life challenges.
I care deeply about my client’s well-being. I understand that seeking help can be daunting; therefore, I strive to create a safe, non-judgmental space where you can feel empowered. I offer one-on-one and couples counselling sessions tailored to support your unique goals. Additionally, I offer educational workshops and consultation services, providing a holistic approach to addressing your needs.
My commitment to this field stems from volunteering at a drop-in centre for women, where I witnessed the transformative power of providing a safe space for individuals to be heard. I carry this dedication into my counselling practice, fostering meaningful relationships and acknowledging the unique experiences that shape your life.
As a trained and experienced counsellor, I offer evidence-based therapy approaches to help you address your challenges and needs. Together, we will identify your strengths, build resiliency, and develop practical tools for navigating life's complexities. My goal is to provide a safe and non-judgmental environment where you can explore your thoughts and feelings, working towards a more fulfilling life.
I understand that seeking counselling services is a significant step, and we are here to make that journey as smooth as possible. I am dedicated to helping you navigate life's challenges and supporting you on your journey toward healing and growth.
