Emerald Path Wellness

Counselling for parents, caregivers and families.

About Wendy



Hello, my name is Wendy Irrinki and I am a Licensed Counselling Therapist in New Brunswick, Canada. As well, I am a Registered Nurse with 22 years of experience. I presently work at Horizon Health in youth mental health services and my private practice is independent from my job at Horizon Health.

On Tuesday evenings, I offer counselling for adults & youth ages 16 and over. As well, I offer parenting support for parents & caregivers of older adolescents. Because I am trained in EMDR, my counselling practice is through a trauma informed lens. After our initial appointment, I will develop a care plan and use a combination of therapies to provide treatment.

I have been trained in the following modalities; EMDR, CBT, DBT, addictions therapy, mindfulness, play therapy, the ARC trauma model, SANE training, motivational interviewing, CISM and solution focused therapy.

If you are interested in an appointment, you may contact me at,  wendyirrinki@gmail.com .




About Wendy

Core values



With more than 22 years of take care of people, I have come to realize that counselling is a part of our wellness. Our path to recovery includes so much more than just talking with a professional. Though counselling is important, there are many areas of our lives that work together to create our health and wellness. This is unique for everyone and may include some of the following areas; meditation, connection to family and friends, a healthy work environment, volunteering, exercise, time in nature, being organized, creativity and so on. For me, the name Emerald Path Wellness reflects my vision of wellness more so than my previous business name, "Wendy Irrinki Counselling".

At Emerald Path Wellness, there are three core values that I bring to my counselling practice. To start, people are inherently strong and resilient, much like an emerald stone. Second, we are all on a life journey and I hope to guide clients towards the right path for them. Third, I focus on overall health and wellness by encouraging clients to take care of all areas of their lives. This may include physical, mental and spiritual domains.
