About Me

My name is Jennifer Eld, but I also go by Jen. I am a caring and compassionate person with a warm demeanor. My favourite pass times are reading, dog walks, and trips to the mountains with my family.


I was drawn to the helping profession since my adolescence. I decided to pursue social work due to the diversity of work available in the field, but mostly because I wanted to make a difference in the world. As I progressed through my education, I discovered therapy was my profession of choice. My post secondary journey was a long one and a lot of hard work, yet very gratifying as it has lead me to where I am at today.

My therapist roles have involved working with adults, teens and children in the context of individual, couples, family, and group counselling. I have helped clients to work toward overcoming eating disorders, body image struggles, self esteem, self injury, depression, anxiety, anger management, family/couples struggles,  and more.

In my last place of employment I lead the Eating Disorder Program. This involved developing and managing the eating disorder groups and often co-facilitating these same groups. I also co-developed and co-facilitated eating disorder education to student therapists.

I am truly grateful to enjoy my job as much as I do. I look forward to meeting new people and supporting clients through their challenges, whatever they may be.
