About

Brandy has 10 years experience working with children, youth, adults and families. For the past 7 years, she has been working as a Clinical Social Worker (Therapist) to help individuals build fulfilling lives by drawing on their strengths. When appropriate, a family focused approach is used. Her areas of speciality include psycho-education, anxiety, depression, interpersonal concerns, family conflict, coping with daily stressors, self-harm, suicidal ideation, emotional concerns and trauma. She has experience with LGTBQ and indigenous populations with a focus on creating a safe and healing environment.
She has training in Emotion Focused Family & Individual Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. She is able to sit with you in difficult emotions while teaching emotion/mind/body connection to allow you to connect to their own wisdom and learn to trust their own expertise; this supports sustainable life long change.
Appointments could be as simple as 1-2 sessions to build some understanding of what is going on and get resources to work on as an individual or family unit. It is never too early or too late to have a third person join you or your family on the journey. Feel free to reach out for a free 15 minute consultation.
