Erica Eugenio MSW, RSW
In my practice I will create a safe space and help guide you to explore yourself and the challenges in your life. I believe that you guide the sessions, as much as I do and together we will create an environment to learn about who you are, where you are and where you want to go.
As we explore the challenges you are facing, you will come to accept your challenges and the emotions that you are experiencing. You will learn how to cope with these challenges and empower yourself to make changes in your life. We will recognize that emotions are meant to be felt and as we understand where the emotions are coming from, you can begin to make sense of them. We want to feel empowered and to enjoy the life we are living.
I am a skilled therapist with several years of experience and training. I have specialized in mental health counselling, in particular child and adolescent mental health, postpartum mood disorders, parenting and ecounselling. I am a registered Social Worker, with the College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers http://www.ocswssw.org. I am a graduate of Wilfrid Laurier University with a Masters in Social Work.
If you come across obstacles on life’s path, I will walk alongside you – offering a listening stride and collaborative conversation to help navigate the course. I appreciate what the very young to the very experienced with life bring to their understanding of the journey. I look for strengths in each individual person and assist in moving toward goals.
My background in teaching, being a parent, interacting with newer Canadians and people who live with various challenges helps me appreciate diversity and each person’s uniqueness at the same time. Therapeutic approaches used (attachment, solution-focused, motivational, play/theraplay techniques are some) is guided by the best match to a person’s goals.
In addition to a Bachelor of Arts degree in Education, I am a registered social worker with a Master’s Degree from Wilfrid Laurier University. My professional development includes training in New Pathways for Families, Theraplay, trauma, hospice, restorative practices, poverty and resiliency. My volunteer time includes co-facilitating an ESL conversation group and spending time with a person who has recently arrived to Canada.
I currently serve on the local board of the Ontario Association of Social Workers. I am always looking for opportunities to increase my knowledge and skills, especially in child development and parent-child relationships.
