Kristen Cairney

Clinical Consultant, Group Therapy

In my work I enjoy meeting clients "where they are at" and helping them find a path forward in life that makes sense for them

Kristen is a registered social worker who holds a Masters of Social Work and Masters of Science in Family Relations and Human Development. She has over 10 years experience in DBT. She believes that sometimes people are a little uncertain about whether therapy might be helpful to them and they need to be given space to explore this. "Often when we are hurt or struggling, it can feel overwhelming or even impossible to make changes, but I am here to help clients find their inner resilience and take that first step. I think it is important to integrate trauma-informed practices, but also to provide people with a toolkit of practical skills they can apply in their lives, so they can begin to experience relief."
