Hello!

I'm Rachel.

I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Social Work from the University of Regina and are a registered member of both the Saskatchewan Association of Social Workers (SASW) and the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA). I have both formal and informal experience counselling and continue to develop my understanding of mental health and wellbeing through various training courses and are currently working towards my Master's Degree in Counselling.

What I Bring To The Table

Lived Experience.

I grew up poor in a pretty rough neighborhood in Edmonton, Alberta. My Father struggled with substance use due to his own childhood trauma, and as a result

I was raised primarily by my Mother. Due to my childhood I experienced poor mental health, and when we moved to rural Saskatchewan in 2007, those issues took on a life of there own, and there was very little access to mental health services & the barriers were great.

Throughout my life I have faced depression & anxiety, I self harmed, came to terms with having a parent who struggled with their own mental health & co-dependency, was a victim of sexual assault & domestic violence, battled postpartum & Mom guilt, and now use all of it to help better others.

Education.

I hold a Bachelors Degree in Social Work, and are currently working towards my Masters.
