Working with people through their challenges is something I am passionate about. Life is ever changing and provides us many opportunities for growth although those times often feel daunting and overwhelming. I believe in being both an advocate and an ally; it is my goal to support you through whatever it is that you are facing right now.

In addition to working one on one with clients, I am also part of the High Conflict Team at Crossroads. I help support families that are experiencing challenges following any changes. I provide coaching and support to parents, children and youth through therapy. Therapy services include one to one counselling and group/family counselling sessions. This also includes observing family interactions to meet the unique needs of each person; Helping parents plan a safe, healing and therapeutic interaction between estranged parent and child; Beginning initial connection and relationship building while ensuring that the views of parents and child(ren) are acknowledged and considered in decision making. I am trained to complete Hear the Child reports which fill an important role in the separation/divorce and court involved process. Hear the Child reports allow parents and other professionals involved with the family to have the Child’s views to consider when making decisions that impact them.

Darlene Mathews, MA

Clinical Counsellor (RCC), Registered Social Worker (RSW) & Virtual Counsellor

Languages: English

Mental health is a critical element of a fulfilling life. Yet, for some, it is just a mirage. As we transition through life, we experience unhappiness, anxiousness, depression, grief, and loss, which can have negative effects on our mind, body and soul and even negatively impact those around us. Although reaching out to a counsellor can make a person feel vulnerable it is through that vulnerability that assists us in building self-esteem, confidence and resilience to move forward in our lives.

In my practice, I emphasize creating a trusting professional relationship using compassion, empathy and understanding your circumstance more clearly. With added support and education, we can alleviate the current intensity of the struggle or difficult situation.

I am a Registered Clinical counsellor and a Registered Social Worker and have been in private practice for over 20 years. I have worked in the health field as counsellor, advocate, coach, and group facilitator assisting people in the areas of:

  • Child development and Parenting Struggles
  • Suicide ideation and mental health in Children
  • Separation and Divorce
  • Depression and Anxiety / Mood Disorders
  • Grief and Loss counselling
  • Past or Recent Trauma
  • Communication / Anger Management
  • Assertiveness and Boundaries
  • Life Transitions
  • Personal development
  • Relationship and couples counselling
  • Eating disorders and addictions
  • Gender dysphoria, LGBTQ transitions & other issues

Some tools/training that I use in my sessions

  • CBT
  • Emotion regulation
  • Resilience building
  • Sleep Hygiene

I practice and value the client centered model knowing that you have your own answers. At this time in your personal or professional struggle, you may simply require different and unique questioning to come to a clearer understanding of your current situation. The single most important first step is to align with someone you will quickly know, like and trust so that you can be as open and honest as your forge a new path for yourself.  I am intuitive, astute and personable and would be honored to join you on your journey to a deeper understanding of your resilience and personal development.

Tara Anton
Registered Social Worker (RSW)

Languages: English

Life never follows the map we drew out exactly how we would like. Despite the plans we create, relationships are unpredictable – conflict and challenges can emerge. My goal is to help guide you while you process, navigate, and explore the unexpected in life in a safe space. My approach to counselling is to create a warm, understanding, client-centred environment to support you with compassion, empathy, and understanding to view your situation holistically.

I am currently a Master of Social Work student at Wilfrid Laurier University. While embarking on the journey to become a private counsellor, I also work with Fraser Health Authority as a Clinician Social Worker with an Assertive Community Treatment Team, supporting people daily with acute mental health struggles. Before this, I lived in Saskatchewan and worked as a crisis counsellor for over seven years, and have extensive experience in crisis intervention, solution-focused, and family-centred practice. I obtained my Bachelor of Social Work through the University of Regina in 2010, and have been a registered social worker in good standing for many years with the provincial bodies.

I have gained experience in counselling families and individuals through crisis situations. What brings me the most joy is supporting families, especially parents, to learn new ways of interacting and engaging with their children, as well as each other, to create more positive family dynamics and happy home lives.

Feel free to reach out if you are looking for assistance in navigating your thoughts and feelings during a difficult time in your life. I would love to provide guidance and empathy to help you to explore alternate perspectives and to heal and move forward toward a new, optimistic, hopeful path in life.

Areas I can support include, but are not limited to:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Parenting support
  • ADHD & Neurodiversity
  • Relationships
  • Behaviour issues
  • Women’s issues
  • Self-esteem/self-worth
  • Self-harming
  • Self-care
  • Coping skills
  • Trauma
  • Grief and loss
  • Parenting support
