Makayla Fallis, BSW, RSW, CYW

Registered Social Worker, Child & Youth Worker

Hi, I’m Makayla (she/her)

I have strong passion for supporting children (ages 4+) and adolescents who have difficulty with: anxiety, depression, anger, self-esteem or challenges related to eating, attending school, socializing and other aspects of functioning and wellbeing. I have extensive experience working with individuals of all ages coping with Diabetes or Gestational Diabetes. Along with helping parents and families to support healthy relationships, I also provide therapy to individuals and families who have experienced domestic violence, assault, abuse or trauma.

I have worked in a variety of settings, supporting clients with a range of concerns. In valuing cultural humility and sensitivity, I welcome clients to incorporate any cultural, spiritual or traditional healing practices within our work together. I’m also an NIHB-approved provider.

In our work together, I may draw from Solution-Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy or Mindfulness Practices. I also speak American Sign Language (ASL).

I take a client-centered approach to counselling and focus on building a comfortable therapeutic relationship, incorporating clients’ interests and strengths into my therapeutic approach.

Together, we will collaborate to identify the goals that are meaningful to you, and create a feasible plan to support you in reaching these goals.

Makayla, can you please introduce yourself?

Makayla, what is it like to work with you?

Makayla, why do you LOVE being a therapist?
