"Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars." ~Khalil Gibran
Brent Enridge (He/His), MSW, RSW
I am a Registered Social Worker with a Masters of Clinical Social Work from UBC. After graduating with Honours from the UBCO Bachelor's of Social Work program, I've worked in the field of social work and counselling for over 23 years in BC and Nunavut. I've always had a natural interest in hearing people's stories and understanding humanity. I have formal training in Mindfulness & Meditation, Motivation Interviewing, Trauma Informed Practice, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Narrative Therapy, EMDR, Research & Evidence Based Practice.
I approach sessions through a lens of cultural safety, recognizing your individual needs in discovering how you've come to this place in your life. After setting a foundation together, we may focus on awareness, assessing needs, emotional regulation, motivation, personal growth and healing. We can also choose techniques and skills that you can bring to your daily life.
I incorporate inspiration and knowledge from physics, Eastern practices, ancient texts, poetry and land-based practices.
I look forward to collaborating and supporting you while you create possibilities for your life.
