Hi! I’m Aden, I’m a queer, non-binary social worker who is trauma-informed.
I have lived experience as a neurodiverse person, spoonie, and a trauma survivor.
I am trained in narrative therapy, motivational interviewing, DBT, CBT, EMDR, and Unyte-iLs’s SSP and Focus (that is based upon Polyvagal theory).
I use various tools from many other modalities as well, such as Internal Family Systems and Somatic Experiencing.
I prioritize working with the following communities: Indigenous, Two-Spirit, LGBTQIAP+/Queer community, trans community, and non-monogamous/polyamorous community.
It is important for me that prior to working with someone that they feel it is a perfect or as close to perfect fit as possible.
Previous to ever recommending a treatment/intervention to someone, I will often experience this modality themselves first to get an idea of what the experience can look or feel like.
Sorry, Aden is not currently taking on new clients at this time.

I am committed to anti-oppression, social justice, and the self-reflection and lifelong unlearning this requires.
I have been practicing social work since 2012 with a focus on issues related to queer and trans folks, body neutrality, harm reduction, and body-based trauma recovery modalities.
While I use an eclectic range of intervention, I am formally trained in EMDR, Brainspotting, DBT, Narrative Therapy, and Motivational Interviewing.
I aim to position myself as a co-collaborator in your journey and will follow your lead.
Using a feminist power-sharing framework, I believe that the therapeutic alliance and a genuine, authentic caring and attuned relationship is the foundational element of successful therapy, and so I will work hard to earn your trust and build that alliance with you.
I am most excited about working with queer and trans folks, neurodiverse folks, non-monogamous folks, and those looking to utilize EMDR for trauma recovery.

I am a queer, non-binary, white social worker. I have lived experience with chronic illness, gender indifference, and would place myself somewhere on the aromantic spectrum.
I specialize in offering “queer informed” CBT. I have extensive training and experience providing Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for depression, worry, and PTSD. I spent 4 years working with the Ontario Structured Psychotherapy Program where I completed intensive clinical training, ongoing performance evaluation, and clinical consultation related to CBT. In addition, I am trained in Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT, Level 1) and utilize parts work to help you get in touch with your whole self.
I relish working with people who are new to therapy and folks who are worried about not knowing what to say or where to start. You can take comfort in knowing that my approach will always leave us with more than enough to explore. I am excited about working with people who want to try Cognitive Processing Therapy for their PTSD symptoms and sincerely enjoy supporting people experiencing depression.
I look forward to hearing your story and will work to make sure you feel seen and understood on your journey. I aspire to challenge you with curiosity, help renew your confidence, and encourage self-compassion.

Hi – I’m Rahul!
I am a Registered Social Worker with a commitment to providing compassionate care.
As an immigrant social worker belonging to the BIPOC community, I have a broad perspective on social issues and utilize this cross-cultural experience in my practice.
I utilize modalities such as Motivational interviewing (MI), Acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in counselling.
Committed to anti-oppressive and social justice perspectives, my counselling approach is guided by principles such as harm reduction, housing-first, patient-centered care, and trauma informed care. I aim to empower individuals and communities, and build resilience.
My knowledge extends into immigration laws, the Mental Health Act, and the Adult Guardianship and Trusteeship Act – acting as a Designated Capacity Assessor under the Government of Alberta.
I understand that reaching out for help can be a monumental step. Please know that your feelings, experiences, and stories matter. You deserve a space where you can embrace healing at your own pace, guided by compassion and expertise. Together, we can navigate the intricacies of your journey, building resilience and discovering the strength that lies within you. When you’re ready, I’m here, eager to be a part of your transformative journey towards well-being and fulfillment.

I’m a Registered Social Worker, and I’m here to walk alongside you on your path to healing and growth.
I’m a queer, white, gender-fluid individual with my own lived experiences. Having walked my own path, I truly understand the worth of lived experience in therapeutic work.
The special insights and lessons we gather from our personal journeys provide wonderful chances for self reflection and personal growth. Embracing the idea that lived experience is a valid way of gaining understanding is at the heart of how I approach offering caring and anti-oppressive support.
My approach to counselling is all about creating a friendly and welcoming space where you can feel comfortable and understood.
With recognition that healing can take time and patience in the process of working through difficult subject matter towards a fuller understanding of ourselves and how we can come to be with our feelings and experiences, I’m deeply committed to helping individuals like you thrive, and I bring together elements from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy to guide our journey together.
I truly believe that each person has the inner wisdom and potential to heal and flourish.
As your counsellor and partner in this process, I’m dedicated to providing you with a safe, non judgmental environment where you can freely explore your thoughts, emotions, and experiences.
Together, we’ll embark on a collaborative journey of strategizing and discovery, working together to find effective ways to approach life’s challenges towards healing.
My approach is all about flexibility and responsiveness to your unique needs. Depending on what suits you best, our sessions might involve structured conversations or even some homework assignments that we can review and discuss together.
Sarah is currently taking on new clients.
I am a queer, neuro-divergent, donor-conceived cisgender woman with Metis heritage. I am open, inclusive, curious, and empathetic — qualities I also aim to surround myself with and believe mental health support should embody.
I have worked in healthcare for almost 20 years behind-the-scenes dealing with highly confidential information and wishing I could step in and contribute something in situations where people are hurting. While still in an administrative role, I feel particularly passionate about what Healing Journey stands for, what they are bringing to a space that desperately needs more availability, inclusivity, and accountability, and the fact that my voice here is heard, pondered, and actioned upon.
I am looking forward to being able to add my perspective into the mix to grow the amazing offerings Healing Journey provides and expand to assist as many folx as possible with my super-stellar administrative work 😉
