Family Counselling Services

When one or more member of the family unit is struggling, it can have impacts on everyone around them. New Roots Recovery and Counselling Services is dedicated to supporting individuals and families through goal directed treatment sessions.

Moving on from a difficult situation can often feel like a devastating, impossible battle. New Roots aims to provide a confidential, safe, and empathetic approach to healing and recovery and we are dedicated to helping clients emerge and thrive as self-prioritizing, capable, and fiercely loyal to their own wants, needs and goals.  

Therapeutic approaches and treatment plans are individually tailored around client’s and families' specific needs, with the belief that all people are capable and have individual strengths that can be an asset in the healing process. With dedication to recovery, many clients experience an increased freedom from confusion lack of direction, and feeling stagnant and afraid of repeating old habits and behaviors.

Personalized Attention, Personalized Approach

Animal Assisted Therapy takes counselling out of the traditional setting and into the outdoors. No screens, walls, or pressures. Jody has had a long-standing dream of incorporating animal and nature based therapeutic approaches in the journey of healing and recovery and am eager to increase awareness of the benefits of AAT.   
Our AAT program currently utilizes miniature horses as a primary therapeutic partner. 
Horses are highly in tune with human emotion, and they invoke and reflect feelings back to us. Priority is placed on the human-animal bond in goal focused sessions. Our AAT program supports clients in addressing: 
Relationship trauma, compulsive behaviors, family conflict, stress management, family of origin issues, impacts of abuse 
Using the miniature horses as teachers, Jody will support you in increasing self-awareness, learning new ways to relate to others, and increasing the possible value of personal healing, growth, and recovery.
