KELLY BREAU COUNSELLING
Congratulations on taking the first step toward a happier, healthier you--this can sometimes be the hardest part! You might be feeling down, have a loss of energy and hope, have difficulty facing situations, people, and places. You might be experiencing feelings of guilt and worthlessness or have difficulty with relationships in your life. Maybe you have had some very difficult things happen to you in your life and are looking for a space to work through and move toward healing from these experiences. My hope is to work along side you to achieve your goals and help you through whatever you are struggling with.
"If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally astound ourselves."

I have always had an interest in human behaviour, emotion, and thinking.
I hold a Masters degree in Mental Health & Health Social Work from the University of Toronto, and am registered in good standing with the Nova Scotia College of Social Workers.
I was born and raised in Saint John, New Brunswick; however, have been residing in Yarmouth County for the past 11 years.
My work experience includes 5 years in the Human Services field working with adults with mental health, cognitive and developmental difficulties as well as children with special needs. This work was then followed by 12 years as a social worker in the Mental Health and Addictions field. This included being a part of mobile mental health crisis team, coordinating a withdrawal management program, and providing therapy to those experiencing concurrent disorders.
Areas of training and specialization that I have obtained include: Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Prolonged Exposure for PTSD, Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), concurrent disorders, substance abuse, mental health issues, and working with First Nations populations.
Upcoming training includes (to be completed in 2023): Gender Affirming Care, Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR), and CBT for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).
My hobbies and interests include animals/pets, animal welfare, camping, photography, & painting.
