Beverley Anderson, M.S.W., RSW, CPF (Certified Parenting Facilitator);. Compassionate Bereavement Care Certified Provider
I am a therapist who is committed to providing a safe, supportive space for individuals to develop the skills and solutions they need to maximize their true potential.
I have worked as a Registered Social Worker with 21 years of counselling experience in the mental health field in both individual and group settings.
I specialize in Perinatal Mental Health and offer support, resources and strategies for mental wellness based on the principles of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I also have experience in counselling individuals and couples around issues of grief and loss, fertility issues, building alternative families, depression and anxiety, parenting issues, LGBTQ issues, life transitions and relationships.
I bring an authentic, down-to-earth, humourous and deeply caring approach to my work. I believe that my commitment to my clients' well-being is evident in my style and manner and this is at the foundation of my practice.
I aim to work collaboratively with my clients, respectfully offering support, encouragement, insights, constructive feedback and practical tools to empower them to take action in order to cultivate a life that reflects their core values.
My practice is informed by a belief in the following:
1. Change is a natural part of life;
2. The individual is the expert of their life and experiences;
3. Each person is capable of being an agent of change in their own life.
I am proud to offer a queer-positive and culturally sensitive practice.
