I am a proud member of the White Bear First Nations and grew up in oskana kâ-asastêki (Regina) Saskatchewan, on Treaty Four Territory. I began working with youth 20 years ago, as a mentor for young Indigenous women.
Prior to graduating with a BA in Indigenous Education (2013), I was a Teachers Associate for 10 years. During my time working for the Regina Public School Board, I spent my time working closely with the Indigenous population in both elementary and high school. I have always had a passion in supporting others and am now in the final stages of completed her Masters in Educational Psychology (Counselling).
I approach counselling through a decolonized, trauma-informed lens and strive to meet each client based on their individual goals and needs.
I have been involved with horses most of my life and am a Certified Equine Canada – Level One Coach (Beginner) and am a trained Equine Assisted Learning facilitator. One of my dreams is to be able to incorporate horses, traditional practices, and land based healing into my practice.
I enjoy travelling, spending time in the outdoors with my family and friends, camping, hiking, and playing music with my band.
Sophie is completing her Masters practicum with This Human Thing, and will be able to see individual clients (teens and adults) until the end of May 2023. If you are interested in working with Sophie during this time, please send an e-mail to email@example.com.
