Karen Cressman profile photo

I am a social worker with many years of experience working with a wide variety of individual problems and relationship challenges. The therapy approach is adapted to the needs of the individual using principles and strategies from CBT. The work is solution-focused and goal-directed.

My work is frequently relationship focussed, ensuring clients feel connected and supported in the key areas of their lives.

I have established a reputation in my work for my ability to build a strong therapeutic relationship with clients which reinforces safety and validation of their concerns.

I received her MSW from Wilfrid Laurier University and am registered with the Ontario College of Social Workers.
