Hello, I am Joelle McKiernan, MSW, RSW, CCC, a counsellor and therapist based in the Terrace-Kitimat area. In 2001, I opened Mourning's Dawn Counselling to address the unresolved grief and trauma I saw in the local community. Since that time, I have been helping those who feel “lost” and “in the darkness” to discover the light of a new day. This is one of the reasons I called my professional practice “Mourning’s Dawn”. I know that each person is experiencing a unique situation, which is why I am committed to spending the time to understand and identify your needs and provide an individualized solution.
At Mourning's Dawn Counselling, I offer therapeutic counselling to those struggling with emotional issues, as well as one-on-one, family and group therapies for adults, adolescents, and children. Additional services offered at Mourning’s Dawn Counselling include First Nations support, stress management, and clinical supervision to help and support those moving through the grief and trauma process.
In times of emotional struggle, we often feel overwhelmed, angry and alone. These difficult times can bring change in a person's life and can provide an opportunity for greater growth. Mourning's Dawn Counselling offers a guiding hand through this time in a warm and inviting setting. As a counsellor and therapist, I can walk with you on this journey and perhaps we can find meaning in it together.
I am ready to listen. Please call me or send an email to make an appointment, and let’s start the healing together. I am available during evenings and weekends.
