About Me

Kealy Whittaker (She/Her)

Hi, I'm Kealy!

For as long as I can remember I have  been drawn to helping others & hearing their stories. Pursuing a career in social work meant that I could do both as a career. As a Clinical Social Worker, I work with adults (18+) on various mental health challenges. My work with individuals includes supporting them through their relationship with food and exercise, anxiety, grief, self-esteem and body image. I place an increased importance on creating a space where you can feel heart and validated while gaining insight and tools to improve your wellbeing. 

My education includes completing a Bachelor of Applied Arts in Gerontology from St. Thomas University, a Bachelor of Social Work from the University of Calgary, and Master of Social Work from St. Thomas University. 

I have additional training in grief and eating disorders, including being an EDIT™ Certified I -Eating Disorder Treatment Clinician.

I am a member in good standing with the New Brunswick Association of Social Workers and am registered to practice electronically in the provinces of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland and Labrador.​

 

My goal is to provide a welcoming, comfortable, and safe place to share your truth. If you think we would be a good fit, reach out below. I look forward to hearing from you!

Sessions Together

My goal is to provide a warm, trusting, and supportive environment free of judgement for my clients. I recognize you are the expert in your own life; therefore, I will meet you where you’re at in your healing journey.  

 

I work from a Strengths-Based perspective and use various evidence-based approaches to help you reach your goals including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Narrative Therapy.  

 

My strongest technique is building rapport and connection with my clients with active listening, validation, and a side of humour.  I recognize the importance of diversity and cultural identity and will work to understand your beliefs, values, and traditions and how to implement them into your plan.
