Unfurl with Moss and Fern Counselling
Bringing community together through healing adults, children, and families while providing connection with nature
REGISTERED CLINICAL COUNSELLOR
Hello, I am Autumn!
I have been working in the mental health field since 2010. My goal is to bring community together through healing children, teens, families and adults while providing connection with nature. As a Registered Clinical Counsellor and play therapist, this is accomplished by being rooted in evidence-based practice that includes training in narrative therapy, expressive therapy, Synergetic Play Therapy© and with nature as a co-supporter through nature-based therapy.
I create a safe, secure, calm, non-judgmental space to nurture your authentic self to unfurl like the fronds of a fern.
I am here to walk with you as you develop your own core attachment to self and connection to those around you, including nature.
SUPPORTING YOUR CONNECTIONS
Nature is all around us, even in urban environments. Why not be guided through your therapeutic healing journey while building connections to the environment around you. These connections will be facilitated with confidentiality, privacy and therapeutic containment in mind.
Have your counselling sessions in a local park or nearby trail and get the benefits of therapeutic guidance during your sessions from your counsellor and additional grounding and calm from the presence of nature.
Nature-based counselling can also be beneficial in an indoor or virtual environment as well.
Online Counselling & Telehealth
This day and age it can be difficult to find time for the commute to appointments. If that is the case, experience the therapeutic benefits of a registered clinical counsellor via telephone or video conferencing options. Sessions can still be tailored to include art or other expressive therapy as needed.
Children & Teens
Children and teens can also benefit from the therapeutic process whether it be a play therapy or expressive therapy approach depending on age. By incorporating play, art and other expressive therapy options in the therapeutic setting, children will have the opportunity to process, build resilience, and navigate their own emotions. This puts less pressure on finding the right words for the child, allowing more ability to process in a developmentally appropriate way.

Parents & Caregivers
Connect for additional support either through individual counselling sessions, parent coaching or family sessions. Raising a family is never without hiccups. Reach out and find what type of sessions might benefit you and your family through a free consultation call.
Mental Health Workers
Working as an outreach worker, peer support worker or other social housing support roles can be a very complex role. Mixed in with wanting to provide support likely is overwhelm, stress and sometimes even trauma. On top of that can be the complication of not wanting to "feel like the client/resident" and having difficulty navigating when you might need someone additional to talk to.
