I spend a lot of time thinking about change. What inspires people to make changes in their lives? What stands in their way? How do we know when it is time for change? How do we as a society value and make meaning from the changes happening all around us? How does an ever-changing world both open and limit possibilities?
My practice is an integration of my clinical and coaching training and experience.
I am motivated to understand and relate to people from all walks of life. I welcome individual, couples, as well as family counselling as I seek to support all of my clients in their journey of self-reflection and healing through fostering a non-judgemental therapeutic relationship while incorporating empathy, genuineness, reliability, and unconditional positive regard. I have been working in the mental health field since 2014 and volunteered for many years with CHIMO Crisis Line where I had to…

I have always enjoyed connecting with and learning from others. This has driven my passion for mental health support for many years. Prior to completing my degree, I frequently sought out work and volunteer positions that involved supporting others. During all of these experiences I was honoured to hear about and witness the strength and resilience of others and support someone in part of their life journey. This path eventually led me to do my Master of Education in Counselling Psychology and Psychotherapy at the University of Toronto.
Counselling can be a life changing process, one that some of us put off for many years. Whether counselling is something that has been on your mind for a while, or it is a crisis situation that brings you in, I look forward to meeting you and walking with you on your journey. At this time I am working exclusively online.
My Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology undergraduate studies has immensely informed my approach to counselling. I often get asked, why the switch from physical to mental health? The truth is that I do not believe I ever really switched as much as I expanded. I consider the approach to both domains very similar and incredibly compatible. As a former exercise practitioner, I was deeply oriented to people’s experience first and and attuning to what allowed them to feel safe to move their body.

I have spent the last twenty years working on understanding and providing wellbeing through the interconnected healing modalities in counselling, mindfulness, yoga and somatic therapies. My pursuit of the truth of holistic healing started in yoga and breath work, leading me to living and working in Asia, studying the effects of meditation and body awareness on the mind.
I found that movement based therapy can work alongside Western medicine as I became qualified in providing yoga therapy specifically for cancer patients, where the focus was to help create a better quality of life and the alleviation of chronic pain, anxiety, depression and other challenges.
Human suffering, whether universal or individual, benefits from a unified approach to mending.
Unique in your own right, yet not alone, let’s explore together how you can reset and regain what seems lost and uncertain at this time.
Hello! My name is Millie Batta (she/her) and I am a clinical fellow at Shoreline Counselling. Going to counselling is much like taking a road trip. You are the driver and I am the passenger in the front seat. As the passenger, I provide directions and help you navigate life’s challenges, but ultimately you are behind the wheel and decide the road we take. It would be an honour to be able to support you on this journey to growth and healing.
My name is Danielle, and I am in the process of completing my master’s degree in counselling psychology. I am incredibly fortunate to be an intern counsellor at Shoreline.
Life can be full of beauty and wonder, but it can also feel heavy and overwhelming. Hafez, a Persian poet wrote, “I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being.” As a counsellor, the way I approach therapy places unique value and importance on the light that I believe each person has within themselves.
My professional life began in education. With my Bachelor’s in Education, I worked in private schools in the Fraser Valley. I took a hiatus from work outside the home to welcome and care for our four children. As the kids moved into middle school, I returned to do graduate work. My interest in the field of counselling began after I battled complex postpartum depression after our fourth baby..
