Who I am
Theresa Robinson, MDiv, BACYC, MPS, RTC
First I want to say welcome. I am honoured that you are here. I love what I do as it is a joy to be a small part of people's journeys. My desire to be a counselling therapist comes from a belief in the individual’s capacity for healing, growth and change. I believe that you have this capacity. However, I believe this healing usually needs to take place in the right environment. This is why my practice is called Greenhouse Counselling. I strive to build safe environments for clients to experience their healing and growth and to flourish into the person they were created to be.
In order to reach the place where I can now accompany clients I first graduated from the University of Victoria with a Bachelor of Arts in Child and Youth Care. This degree gave a wonderful foundation in understanding the human person. I then went on to receive a Masters of Divinity in 2009 then a Masters of Psychotherapy and Spirituality (my capstone can be found here). I have over 15 years of ministry experience which includes pastoral counselling and chaplaincy at the University of Alberta since 2015.
I am a wife and mother of 5 children. I grew up in Victoria and have lived in Alberta since 2004.
I work with adults of all ages, older youth (14+) and am specialized (have additional training and experience) in working with:
Anxiety and Stress
Grief and Loss
ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy)
