Registered Social Worker
Melanie is a Registered Clinical Social Worker with a Masters of Social Work (Clinical Stream) degree. She has an extensive career of working in a variety of clinical settings such as; addictions, mental health crisis services (youth and adult services), hospital and community mental health therapeutic services. Melanie saw early on in her career that there was a significant need for comprehensive DBT services to be offered in Winnipeg. Her passion for DBT eventually led her to seek-out intensive DBT training so she could provide this much needed evidence based treatment in her private practice.
Melanie also has extensive experience in other therapeutic modalities such as Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Solution Focused Therapy. She recognizes that everyone has unique life stories and experiences, therefore, she tailors her therapeutic approach based on a persons specific needs and goals for therapy. Melanie has worked with a diverse clinical population including those with mood disorders, anxiety disorders, acute mental health conditions, substance use, and borderline personality disorder.
