Lori Harmon, BSW, RSW
Registered Social Worker
I am a Registered Social Worker with 12 years of experience working with youth, adults and culturally diverse individuals in their time of crisis. I have my Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Regina, with additional training in cognitive and behavioral therapy. I have gained a significant amount of experience working with suicide ideation, self harm, ADHD, FASD and assisting clients develop coping mechanisms. I work well in helping people with goal setting, self-esteem, self confidence, anxiety, depression, trauma, and stress management. Additionally, I am a Master ASIST (Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training) Trainer and have been training individuals and groups since 2017. I make it a personal goal to help people to find their voice, be heard, advocate for their needs and strive to create happiness, well being and a sense of calm.
I am a kind, caring and compassionate individual; I am approachable and truly believe that everyone needs a little support and guidance on their journey through life. I am very passionate about helping others and strive for success with all individuals that I have the privilege to meet. I am a lifelong learner and enjoy gaining knowledge to best support the individuals I work with to ensure they are getting the best benefits from what is being offered. I am a high energy and positive person who can shine light on most things.
Through my clinical experience I have had the opportunity to engage with diverse populations; I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting people through all aspects of life, and I look forward to meeting and working with many others in my future. This includes anyone from the LGBTQ2S+ community, people who are part of a minority group and many others who may have a diverse cultural background.
I strategize with the concept of goal setting and helping people reach short- and long-term goals. I like to communicate with complete transparency to help build trusting relationships with my clients that is both welcoming and safe. When helping others with trauma related events or experiences I use a strength-based approach, I find that this helps my client see the good and focus on it instead of the negatives. One of my personal beliefs is that life is a journey and is a lot easier when you have someone to walk through it with you.

- Mental Health
- Suicidal Ideation/ self harm
- Stress management
- Abuse (emotional – physical)
- Divorce or separation
- Self esteem and self confidence
- Self growth and Empowerment

- Communication skills

Outside of work I enjoy spending quality time with my family and riding my horses. I love skiing and ski-dooing in the winter and I love to spend summer evenings at home around a fire. I love the outdoors in all seasons. I love to learn and spend a lot of my free time gaining knowledge about how to best help others.
