Natalie Nowkawalk, MSW, RSW
Certified EMDR Therapist and Consultant
I love my work as a Social Worker, and am both passionate and dedicated to my work. I have a Masters Degree in Social Work from McGill University. I have 27 years of professional social work experience. Through my work experience, I developed resources in the community in mental health, family support and parenting programs.
In addition, I have gained valuable clinical experience in counselling individuals, couples and families in crisis intervention, mental health, suicide prevention and intervention, grief, trauma and post-trauma, relationship issues and addictions. I have worked in Montreal, Quebec, Inukjuak, Quebec in Nunavik and Kincardine, Ontario.
I have worked with children, teens and adults with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, intellectual challenges and mental health problems. I have worked with adults dealing with issues of parenting, couples issues, abuse and loss. I have experience working with doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists, nurses, police, schools and government officials. I specialize in suicide prevention, trauma and post-trauma, stress management, overcoming depression and anxiety and relationship issues. I am trained in EMDR therapy and am an Internationally Certified EMDR Therapist and Approved Consultant with EMDRIA. I assist in Basic EMDR Trainings with Dr. Amanda Bell.
I acknowledge that I reside gratefully on the Territory of the Anishinabek Nation: The people of the Three Fires known as Ojibway, Odawa, and Pottawatomie Nations. The Chipewas of Saugeen, and the Chippewas of Nawash, now known as The Saugeen Ojibway Nation. I grew up in Kincardine, Ontario, and have moved back in the Fall of 2010 to start a private practice in social work. I love Kincardine, and am dedicated to the community and surrounding communities to offer my social work services in order to improve the lives of others.
CONFIDENTIAL. TRUSTWORTHY. PEACEFUL.
Come make the head-heart connection.
