Elizabeth Chartier-Plante

Elizabeth Chartier-Plante

Elizabeth is a practicum student, completing her Master of Counselling through the University of Calgary. She likes to compare the path we take through life to going on a hike in the wilderness: we start with what we think we might need on the trail, but sometimes it’s harder than anticipated, rain starts unexpectedly, or we get lost. The same happens on our life-path, and it’s important sometimes to stop, take a break, and reflect on “How am I feeling? Do I have the right tools to handle this by myself?”.

Using an integrated and collaborative approach, she works with clients to identify their needs, determine therapeutic goals, and build on their existing strengths to help them overcome life’s challenges. She draws on various theories such as Emotion Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Narrative Therapy, and Positive Psychology. 

Elizabeth received her undergrad degree in Mathematics and Psychology, from the Royal Military College of Canada. She currently still serves in the Canadian Armed Forces in the communications branch. Her experiences have shown her how hard it can be to acknowledge when we need help, and that it’s often even harder to ask for it. She strives to create a safe and supportive environment, free of judgements or bias, where clients can engage in self-reflection and receive the support they need.

Elizabeth is booking now for September 2022 availability. Fee is $80.00 per session. To schedule an appointment with Elizabeth or request information, please email Jacky at info@julieclarketherapy.com.

Lucie applies a holistic approach when working with clients. She believes that trauma not only impacts the mind, but that it also effects the body. As such, she implements mind and body interventions to help release the hold of trauma whether in individual or couple’s therapy.  

In relationships, Lucie understands the importance of secure bonds. She believes that couples can not only make their relationships work, but that they can thrive in them by building a safe space for each partner to belong. She understands that everyone is unique and therefore she tailors her treatments to match each client’s needs.

On a personal level, Lucie loves spending time with her husband, and with her 3- and 4-year-old sons. They love biking, paddle-boarding, and even doing yoga as a family.

Lucie offers a safe virtual space through an encrypted (secure) online platform “Jane” so clients can connect with her conveniently. Lucie is currently accepting new clients, and she is looking forward to connecting with you soon. 

Lucie is currently accepting new clients. Her rate per session is $100.00 Please contact info@julieclarketherapy.com to book.
