Counselling with Layna

I am a Métis woman of Nehiyaw and Michif ancestry. I hold a Masters in Social Work and I am a Registered Social Worker in the province of Alberta. I have over twenty years of professional experience working a in a variety of settings. I primarily work with Indigenous adults and children who are survivors of multigenerational, genocidal trauma. I specialize as a helper with those who are healing from childhood sexual abuse, developmental trauma, and domestic and colonial violence.

Please note my practice is currently full and I generally am not accepting new referrals or individuals into my practice. Exceptions will be made for Indigenous persons or POC (people of color).
