In light of current public health concerns with COVID-19, we decided to offer our compassionate care to our community by means of online video counselling or ecounselling, for now.

Penny Fenske MA, RCC

I offer counselling from an attachment perspective that is emotion focused and body-based. My education, research and practice has specifically focused on understanding deeply and responding compassionately while supporting resilience in adults, youths, and families who have experienced trauma and/or abuse. This includes my being a Level Three Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy practitioner (AEDP). To learn more about this effective, heart-based, neuroscientific therapeutic approach click on https://aedpinstitute.org/about-aedp/ 

 

I regard forming a warm, authentic relationship with you, based on empathy and respect, as foundational to good counselling. This means that I will treat you with dignity and fully attend to hearing and understanding your experience and how you feel about it.

Julie Teng MA, MS, RDN, RCC

I am excited to offer a counselling approach that is body-based, person-centered, and seeks to uncover the root of the challenges you may be experiencing in your life. In addition to counselling, I have a background in holistic nutrition and specialize in addressing eating patterns, relationship with body shape and size, disordered eating, and general health and vitality. I endeavor to assist you in feeling more "at home" in your body. My background in Ashtanga yoga and mindfulness informs my counselling practice. I am passionate about working with you to foster a deeper connection with your own innate wisdom and insight. 

 

I earned my BS in Nutrition from Bastyr University in Seattle, WA, known for its evidence-based, holistic approach. I received my MS in Health Care Policy and Management from SUNY Stony Brook in Stony Brook, NY and became a Registered Dietitian. Following several years working in the field of nutrition, I earned my MA in Somatic Counselling Psychology from Naropa University in Boulder, CO. I am a Registered Clinical Counsellor and a Registered Dietitian (recognized in the US and Canada).
