Proximity to transit and or intersections:
My name is Norissa Mongrain, I identify as an Algonquin and Finnish woman, from Nipissing First Nation in Ontario. I practice out of Lu'ma Medical Centre in Vancouver, BC.
I am a Registered Social Worker with a Degree in Social Work and a Diploma in Counselling Assaulted Women and Children. I also have specialized training in Child Welfare with experience providing advocacy and consultative services for families involved with the ministry. I also currently hold a certification in Grief and Loss and Suicide Prevention and Intervention.
I have been working with First Nations, families, individuals and seniors since 2008, in a counselling and social services role, at not-for-profits in Toronto, Ontario and Vancouver, British Columbia. In particular I have experience working with people that have experienced sexual, psychological and physical abuse, families of the missing and murdered Indigenous women, sex workers, grief and loss, parents involved with child welfare and Indian Residential School Survivors.
Theories and perspectives that guide my practice:
I work using a client centred approach that aims to provide culturally safe, non-judgemental, and anti-oppressive environment. I approach each individual where they are at in their lives and work along side them on their journey to self discovery. I offer guidance and the sustainable skills needed to work through life challenges beyond therapeutic services.
