Aileen Cunningham

Associate Counsellor

Who am I?
The biggest compliment I have ever received was when I was told that I make people feel safe. I feel that reflects what I embody and what I aspire to be to others, a safe place. I am naturally warm and empathetic yet inquisitive and driven. I am truly motivated by the need to help those touched by trauma and strive to help clients find healthy perceptions of themselves.
