Kristen Bird profile photo

I am a proud Mohawk woman who has focused my life on collecting both western and traditional Indigenous knowledge to enhance my physical, mental, spiritual and emotional bundles. My goal is to support space for people to explore and become intimate with their sense of identity and purpose in life so they can thrive in life, not just survive.

I graduated from Wilfred Laurier with a Master’s Degree in Social Work. I practice Solution-Focus Brief Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Dialectic Based Therapy and Cognitive Based Therapy in sessions for the past 12 years. I have also recently received training in the treatment of pregnancy and postpartum mood disorders. I look forward to working together with clients in a meaningful way to help clients achieve positive change.
