Doors will open, but you have to be looking forward to seeing them and be thinking kindly of yourself in order to trust walking through them. Brittany Burgunder
Doors will open, but you have to be looking forward to seeing them and be thinking kindly of yourself in order to trust walking through them.
I believe that we are all trying to do the best that we can in our lives. Often however we don’t have the skills or support to help us to get to the place where we want to be. My goal is to help clients reach a place where they can feel supported and learn how to use tools and strategies to live out the best version of themselves. When meeting with clients my priority is to make them feel valued, heard, and empowered. While focusing on the relationship I support my clients in identifying various strategies to help them cope with life challenges.
I believe that having a strong relationship between the counselor and client creates a space where the client is free to be themselves fully, which ultimately helps them learn to be their best selves. I support my clients mainly through person-centered therapy and using components of cognitive behaviour therapy.
I am a Registered Psychologist (Provisional) and provide counselling and assessment services under supervision of a senior psychologist. I completed a Bachelor’s degree in Education and a Master’s degree in School and Counselling Psychology at the University of Saskatchewan. Prior to stepping into my current role, I worked as a special education teacher in the public school system for 5 years.
My areas of practice include emotional and behavioural difficulties in children and teens (oppositional, conduct, aggression, anxiety), learning challenges, and Autism Spectrum Disorder.
