Amanda MacDonald MSW, RSW
From the beginning of my social work career, I have believed that personal growth, development, and positive change occurs everyday in human life. Fortunately, in the past 20 years of working with my clients, I have been privileged to work alongside, as they make positive change and face fears that have held them back from reaching their full potential.

Working from a trauma and attachment lens, founded in neuroscience, I provide counselling and therapy to individuals and families. Together, we develop a treatment plan and set therapeutic goals to assist in healing from adverse life experiences and uncover innate strength and resilience. By using a collaborative, strengths-based approach, I believe that building, enhancing, and repairing support systems (whenever possible) is essential, while individuals pursue their journey of healing.

In 2011, I completed the Master of Social Work program at Kings’ University College, then pursued training as a Trauma and Loss Specialist and Certified EMDR Therapist (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing). I welcome diversity in all client challenges, backgrounds, cultural/religious beliefs, sexual orientation, age, and gender.
