Janelle Burns, MSW
Are you feeling bogged down by unpleasant feelings such as anxiety and depression? Do you struggle with addiction related concerns? Are you in need of healthy coping strategies and support in reaching your life goals? Hi! My name is Janelle and I am a Clinical Social Worker providing individual therapy to adults struggling with anxiety, depression, addiction related concerns, behaviour change, stress, and life transitions. I support my clients to learn healthy coping strategies, set boundaries, develop assertiveness skills, and improve self-esteem and self-worth.
I completed a Bachelor of Arts degree with a concentration in Psychology at Cape Breton University, a Bachelor of Social Work at Dalhousie University, and a Master’s degree in Clinical Social Work at the University of New England. I am warm, empathetic and non-judgmental, and work using a person-centered, strengths-based approach. I strongly believe that people are experts in their own lives and work collaboratively with my clients to help them reach goals to improve their mental health and become a healthier version of themselves. I am trained in therapeutic modalities such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Solutions Focused Therapy and Structured Relapse Prevention.
If it sounds like we would be a good fit, please reach out for an appointment. I look forward to working with you!
