Hello, It’s nice to meet you.

I’m so glad you’re here.

White Branch
 
My name is Jennifer Summerfeldt.
I’m passionate about helping you learn the skills to safely feel.

 Where do I begin? 

 

It has been a journey to say the least, which is why I wrote Midwifery for The Soul: Awaken to Your Fierce Feminine in the Depths of Darkness and Trauma. 

 

Aside from my professional credentials with nine years of postsecondary education resulting in a masters in counselling psychology, I have been dedicated to my own path of healing since I was a young adult. 

 

I have (L)EARNED how to hold space for myself and thus you, to dive deep into your internal landscape so you can transform your core limiting beliefs and imprints that lock you in your suffering.

 

Many of the people I work with say they’ve tried traditional counselling in the past, but it left them feeling like 'something was missing'. When they came to me, they felt like they could finally start getting into the ‘nitty-gritty’ parts of healing, allowing them to participate wholly and deeply in their process of discovery, transformation, and growth.

With more than 20 years of experience, my knowledge is supported by extensive training and credentials:
 
  • I have an MA in Counselling Psychology (MACP)

  • I specialize in maternal mental health and trauma-informed care

  • I’m a Certified Trauma Recovery Counsellor (CTRC)

  • I’m a Certified Grief Support Counsellor (CGSC)

  • I’m a Certified Holistic Doula, a Childbirth Educator

  • I’m a Certified Canadian Counsellor (CCC) 

  • I have graduate-level education in performance and sports psychology

  • I was a student midwife of direct entry midwifery for 8 years

  • I am a published author of two books and numerous articles

  • I am a host of a podcast and have been a guest on many podcasts

  • I have been a guest presenter at multiple conferences

 
When I’m not in my office or teaching, you can find me spending time with my three amazing teenaged children and my rock of a man. I geek out on neuroscience and online business stuff. And, for fun, I love writing and designing jewellery.
