Announcement icon I am currently available by phone or email.
My name is Anita O’Keeffe and I am a Registered Social Worker and former Firefighter. If you are a First Responder- Fire, Police, EMS, Corrections Officer, Nurse, 911 Dispatcher, Military, Probation Worker or a Front Line Mental Health Worker and are experiencing the effects of trauma/Post Traumatic Stress Injuries, I can help you work through it. I work from a Strengths based, Client Centered approach and I can help you build your resiliency. Together, we can work on a treatment plan that will help to develop your confidence as well as provide you with the tools to cope with trauma in your life.
As a former First Responder, I have experienced trauma on a number of occasions. I work from a Trauma Informed Approach, and will help you recognize your own strengths, while helping you build your resiliency. Using some Cognitive Behaviour Therapy methods, we can work together to build your confidence and work collaboratively on positive coping methods.
As a former Firefighter, I can truly empathize with First Responders and the trauma you deal with. You have some of the most challenging careers, you are Hero's in our communities, yet many of you suffer in silence. Please email me to set up an appointment so we can work together to get you on a path of recovery and wellness. engine21counselling@gmail.com
