My name is Jaimee Folkins, and I am a licensed counselling therapist in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada. I own a counselling practice called Balanced Beginnings Counselling Therapy, working with primarily women in all stages of their parenting journey, from conception to parenting and beyond, including pregnancy loss and infertility. I have a special interest in working with women as they explore the new identity inherent to becoming a mother, and figure out where they fit now that their lives are so inherently different than they were before. I utilize an integrative therapeutic approach in my practice, implementing tools from cognitive behavioural therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, and narrative therapy to name a few, focusing on treating the whole person from a warm, non-judgemental, person centred approach. I am a mother first, and my experiences in raising my own children, as well as my experience holding space for other parents as they get to know themselves in this new capacity, informs my interactions with my clients.
