Kristy Goltes - Founder & Clinical Counsellor


I am humbled to be a part of and contribute to your wellness journey. As a therapist, I offer a safe, non-judgmental space for you to explore many of life’s challenges. I work from a strength-based, trauma and culturally informed lens, and respect the uniqueness each individual brings. I value an eclectic, holistic approach to therapy and wellness, in that, I draw from various therapeutic approaches to best fit your needs, while looking at and supporting all aspects of you as an individual. I provide clinical counselling services to individuals, couples, and families ages 12 and up. 

I found my passion in becoming a mental health clinician, and specifically a trauma clinician, after learning how much of our lives are influenced from the trauma we endure. Experiencing this myself, I set forth to contribute to others healing, to help alleviate the symptoms trauma causes, for people to find their true selves again.

I have a diverse background in human service professions, including as an education assistant in the school system, as an early childhood educator assistant in childcare settings, as a behavior interventionist, as well as counselling in an Indigenous community and in private practice.
