Kelly Gerhardt, B.Ed., M.Ed.
RPC Registered Professional Counsellor
I have been working for over 15 years with individuals and their families who are experiencing challenges and who are wanting to make positive change. People I work with would describe me as caring but straight forward and direct. I believe that everyone can make positive changes in their lives but this often takes a lot of hard work and being upfront and honest about the roles that they play in their difficulties. I work with clients to help create positive and lasting change through active goal setting. I have a degree in Education, a Post-Degree Certificate in Special Education and Educational Psychology and a Masters Degree in Special Education and Educational Psychology. I also have various training and certificates that enable me to work with individuals and different types of unique family structures.
I discovered my interest, ability and passion for counselling and mental health early in my teaching career, working with children and families with a variety of needs. Since then, I have gone on to work with children, teens, couples and families in private counselling, foster care, hospitals and several public school divisions. I have developed a skill set for transition planning and goal setting for those who want to make positive changes in their lives.
My combination of experience in reactionary treatment, problem-solving, intervention plans, as well as preventative work, has helped me to think critically and holistically about the challenges people face in their lives. I work diligently with my clients in a trusting environment to get through life’s obstacles while sustaining a healthy lifestyle that creates lasting change.
