Mackenzie Boatman Clinical Counselling

Report Abuse


I believe that healing is possible, and that growth & change occur in the context of safe relationship. As such, I strive to provide a non-judgmental, caring space for people to feel accepted, better know and understand themselves, work towards their goals, and get un-stuck. I am client-centered in my work, meaning that I see people as the experts of their own lives, and my role is to walk alongside and provide the support that is needed, which can look different for each person.

I hold a Master’s Degree in Marriage & Family Therapy and am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR), Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), Emotion-Focused Family Therapy (EFFT), Play & Sandtray Therapy, and Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT) and incorporate Internal Family Systems (IFS), Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Interpersonal Neurobiology, Mindfulness, and Self-Compassion techniques into my practice as a trauma-informed therapist.

It was through the experience of welcoming my first child into the world that my eyes were opened to the beautiful and challenging aspects of the perinatal and parenting journey, and I uncovered a passion for walking with women and their families through the major life transitions and losses that can be a part of this stage. I have focused my studies and clinical work on perinatal and infant mental health and find so much joy in furthering my education and experience in these areas, most recently through the Centre of Perinatal Excellence.
