Suzie St Denis M.A. RSSW

Registered Social Service Worker

Hi, I’m Suzie (she/her)

I am passionate about supporting individuals navigating life’s challenges and changes; whether that’s coping with career, life, or relationship transitions, setting and reaching personal goals, or grieving the loss someone or something important to you.

I support adults and adolescents with: depression, anxiety, grief, relationship concerns or setting and reaching goals that are meaningful to you.

I am a trauma and addiction specialist, providing therapy for addiction, substance use, and PTSD. I am trained in leading evidence-based therapies for treating trauma, including: EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), the Integrated Trauma and Attachment Treatment Model (ITATM) approach to trauma processing, and Cognitive Processing Therapy.

I practice from an array of theories and techniques, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solution Focused Therapy, Logotherapy, Attachment Theory and Gestalt Theory.

I have had the pleasure of supporting diverse individuals and groups over my 15 years of clinical experience. I enjoy supporting Indigenous clients, and am a proud ally for the LGBTQ2S+ community. For all clients, I value creating a safe, accepting, non-judgmental relationship, built on trust, respect and authenticity.

I believe your counselling experience is an opportunity to explore your own internal world, and life experiences, with the goal of coming to a greater understanding of yourself, so that you can take positive steps forward.

I look forward to supporting and collaborating with you in processing through your pains, helping you reach your goals, and preparing for the next step. I’m here for you every step of the way.
