Written by A.L. on Sep 29, 2021 after therapy with Jennifer for 8 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

Dr. Weekes helped create a space where I could understand what my behaviours and beliefs were rooted in. She also gave me the practical tools to address them, and the accountability to follow up and see how I was progressing with my goals. I truly appreciate her support and guidance!

Written by M.I. on Aug 16, 2021 after therapy with Jennifer for 6 months on issues concerning stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, and sleeping disorders

Jennifer is incredible. I have worked with her since January 2021 and she has helped me navigate through some of the toughest few months I have ever gone through. Her kindness, compassion and commitment and confidence in me was unwavering and I never felt like I was alone or thought I could not get through this time. I feel like I have come leaps and bounds since our first session. I have more tools to reach for during hard times and I have better boundaries in place with a lot more self worth and self love in the bag. I cannot thank Jennifer enough, I could not have done it without her.

I just started my therapy with Dr. Weekes and I have only had one session. She is extremely caring and a good listener. Her advice is very helpful. This is my first experience talking to a therapist.
