Your story, your challenges are unique to you. This realization is the first step to understanding your struggles, feeling empowered, and making positive change to improve your life.
My name is Joan Smith. I have a Master in Social Work, and I am a Registered Social Worker with more than 25 years of experience supporting individuals struggling with trauma, grief, and mental health challenges. My approach is sincere, non-judgemental, and professional.
My specialty is providing support to adults, primarily using EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) treatment. I also draw on strength-based and client-centred approaches to best support your individual needs. As a practicing EMDR clinician, the re-processing of traumatic, or distressing memories aids in neutralizing or feeling at peace with those disturbing or traumatic memories.
I strongly believe you can be empowered to find your individual strengths, to recognize your value, and to learn how to navigate your emotional pain in ways that will allow you to flourish. I would be honoured to support you to move toward making the positive change you may require to experience a fulfilling life.
