Everything and everyone exists in a system, which means that nothing happens in isolation.  Change in one area will ultimately affect other areas in a person’s life and relationships—therefore all personal work is valuable, useful, and an exciting opportunity for growth.    


Jane is a registered clinical counsellor, with a masters degree in marriage and family therapy.  She has experience working with individuals, couples, families covering a wide range of concerns including anxiety, depression, grief and loss, suicidal thoughts, panic attacks, anger, self-harm, relational/marriage/family conflict and distress, life transitions, caregiving, developmental disabilities, addiction, abuse and trauma.   


Jane’s therapeutic foundation is an attachment-based approach, which says we are created for connection—with ourselves, with others, and with the world around us.  These relationships are vital to our existence and can be both our greatest strengths and challenges in life.  Her clinical work utilizes her training in emotion-focused individual and couple therapy (EFT/EFIT), with an incorporation of techniques from cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT).  She offers sessions in both English and Korean.

Michele Francis,  RCC, MA, BA,



You are important and what you have to say matters! Taking the first step to looking for counselling tells me your mental and emotional wellbeing matters to you. You are not willing to sit by and let challenges control you; instead, you are a fighter, a survivor, a resilient human being wanting better for yourself.  Working through challenges (be it trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship challenges, stress, or addiction, to name a few) you will be supported and encouraged in a non-pathologizing, anti-oppressive environment to create deep insight regarding the connections between past and present experiences.

While I subscribe to a variety of therapeutic approaches, I mainly work from an Adlerian (constructivist), Solution-Focused, Cognitive, a Feminist focused and a Narrative (constructivist) lens. I take a trauma informed, multicultural approach to counselling. Understanding that humans face a variety of socio-structural challenges that further compound issues.

It is important that you feel supported, heard and connected to the counsellor you will work with. To better understand if I will be the best fit for you, please take the time to look at the services I offer, and read more about me and my approach to counselling.
