Gloria Mitchell, BSW, RSW
Clinical Counsellor/Coach/ Registered Social Worker
For 14 years, I had the opportunity to work in the area of separation and divorce. It was a significant and deeply moving time in my career. The clients and children I met were in a space of transition, grief, loss and recovery. My primary role was to understand the many complexities of connections and attachments within the familial framework and recommend a plan for their journey of adjustment.
Life is often challenging and a person’s story is ever-evolving. I honour people’s stories and respect the uncovering of their path forward. I believe it takes courage to ask for assistance when needing help. Adaptation to a life change often means that a life script or inner dialogue can be expanded to encompass new tools and interpersonal skills. A different perspective can help enlarge and encourage change of long standing patterns of beliefs, attitudes and behaviours. Small shifts of change are often the first step towards enhancing and taking ownership of life and well-being. These steps can often have a positive influence upon others in our cherished relationships.
I have many interests, and enjoy learning and sharing with others. I have continued to train in the areas of Interpersonal Skill Building, Mediation Training, Communication Skills, Resiliency, PTSD, Trauma, Mindfulness, Bereavement, Grief, Loss and Transition.
At this point in my career I wish to focus on walking beside clients who are looking to build capacity for themselves, their families and other relationships. I provide services to individuals (ages 18+), couples, and families in the following areas.
