Clinical Social Worker/Therapist
Heather McLeod holds a Bachelor of Social Work from St. Thomas University and a Master of Social Work from Dalhousie University.
Heather has been a social worker for 9 years, and in this time, she has worked with children, youth and adults struggling with the effects of trauma, including childhood trauma and domestic and sexual violence,
anxiety, depression, eating disorders, addictions, and sexual and gender identity.
Heather works from an anti-oppressive, trauma-informed perspective. Her approach is flexible and prioritizes clients as the experts on their lives. She uses a collaborative approach that emphasizes individuals’ strengths and capabilities as well as their struggles.
My approach includes the use of narrative therapy, feminist counselling, mindfulness and self-compassion. I am passionate about helping individuals not just survive problems but thrive andfind joy and purpose in their lives.
"The pain you feel today is the strength you feel tomorrow. For every challenge encountered, there is opportunity for growth."
