MEET MICHELLE

Michelle Power, BA, MSW, RSW


Through meaningful therapeutic relationships in a warm and friendly environment, I will work with you to create lasting change using a client-centered approach that is tailored to your unique needs. Together we will explore your thoughts and feelings and I will guide you through the therapeutic process with kindness and understanding, at a pace that is right for you.


It takes courage and a desire for change to reach out and share the personal details of your life that are causing you distress and concern.  I have been fortunate to have worked with, and witnessed, this vulnerability and strength through people like you, who hope to find a more positive way of living their best life.  It has been through these experiences that my passion for therapy has grown. It continues with each new individual, each new question and struggle, each journey that begins with a single step.


Therapy will be tailored to your needs.  I am able to provide ideas from numerous  approaches and draw upon a variety of techniques including  eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), acceptance and commitment therapy (ACT), solution-focused therapy, narrative therapy, and the Gottmam Methods Couples Therapy.


I am a registered social worker who has been providing intervention and counselling to individuals, couples and families of all ages and backgrounds for over 15 years.


I graduated from the University of Victoria, British Columbia with a Bachelor of Social Work and then received my Masters of Social Work from Memorial University of Newfoundland and Labrador.  I also hold a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from Memorial University.
