MSW, R.S.W., Registered Social Worker

Laurie Cavan profile photo

My clinical foundation includes using a trauma-focused lens. I will encourage the client to incorporate a “bottom-up” approach which means we will also include the way memory is held in the body as information regarding the current issues of concern. I often suggest the option of equine-assisted therapy when appropriate.

I teach grounding skills, and use a mindfulness approach. My clients can expect to be active participants in their healing journey and I often provide extensive psych education when appropriate.
