Marla McMillan RPN

Counsellor

I am a registered psychiatric nurse with 10 years of experience working in emergency, acute and community mental health care. I believe that each person has the capacity to heal and to do this they need a space that they can feel safe and supported in.

I have experience working with the following:

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Bipolar disorder

  • Personality disorders

  • OCD

  • ADD/ADHD

  • Suicidal ideation

  • Self-harm

  • Addiction

  • Forensics

  • Trauma

  • PTSD

  • Substance use

  • Loss/Grief/Bereavement ​

I use a trauma informed approach and have training in Somatic Experiencing, as well as critical incident debriefing. I am also trained in basic Accelerated Resolution Therapy, which is an eye movement therapy that can help clients move through past trauma and other mental health symptoms in as little as one session.

I am an approved counsellor with Non-Insured Health Benefits (NIHB)​ and Victim Services.
