Melanie Samaroden

Practicum Student, Master’s in counselling Psychology Program


Counselling is another tool in your toolbox to help you with the process of life.  Life is a process – one in which we depend on each other to continue to move forward.  Sometimes we find a support system in friends or family, and sometimes we are better served by a professional. My past experience is working with cognitive and behaviour problems in children and youth.   

I look forward to working collaboratively with you and help you effectively use the skills, strengths, and resources that you have.  I draw upon different techniques including Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Solution-Focused Therapy.

My past experience has been as an intensive child/youth care worker and for the past six years as a junior high teacher. After my practicum experience I will be completing thesis work in the area of fetal alcohol spectrum disorder.
