KELSEY SANTERRE

B.Sc., M.Sc., M.A. Candidate in Counselling Psychology

Kelsey is currently completing her master’s degree in counselling psychology at Yorkville University. She began studying at the Traumatology Institute in July 2021 and continues her practicum training at Bear Psychology and Trauma Practice in January 2022 under the supervision of Dr. Anna Baranowsky.

Kelsey has a background in cognitive psychology with a specialization in understanding how we process language. She also carries 10 years of experience in mindfulness and body awareness skills from the studies of yoga. Kelsey has worked with clients across all ages (families with toddlers, children, youth, and adults) through her studies and professional career. She understands that each person brings a unique set of experiences and is passionate about providing a helping hand to clients processing trauma. She understands that emotional awareness has many layers, and the depths of unweaving the knots are reached by following the flow inspired by the client themselves.

Kelsey invites a multi-modal approach of cognitive, behavioural, physical and emotional understand of experience. She is committed to creating an open, supportive and empathetic space for her clients. It is her goal to ignite empowerment and resourcefulness within each person she holds space for, so her clients are equipped with the skills to repeatedly return home within themselves.
