Jodie Read


From a young age, I was fascinated by human connection, development, and interaction. I had always known that the adversities I faced in life would strengthen my capacity and aspirations to contribute to the process of healing and growth in others. 

Prior to going into private practice, I had the honor of working alongside survivors of human trafficking to support recovery and trauma healing. This experience inspired me to delve deeper into understanding and contributing to the healing of trauma. As such all my approaches in therapy come from a trauma-informed approach.

In my personal life, I adore being a mother and relish in having fun experiences with my daughter. I am part of a large family and enjoy spending time with them. I am an avid reader and life-long learner. I enjoy running (except when it’s raining), weightlifting, and browsing Indigo. I believe in having work / life balance, laughter in life, and mindfulness so I can be fully present for the life I'm living.
