Susannah Church, MSW, RSW
Social Worker | Psychotherapist | Clinical Supervisor

My goal is to support my clients to find the clarity and confidence they need to help them move forward. I believe the right approach can uncover one's innate capacity for healing, balance and wholeness. Most of my clients are in their 20's and 30's, navigating the various decisions to be made regarding career, family, lifestyle and purpose. I work with many first responders, helping them to heal from work related trauma and burnout.

I have supported clients ages 4 - 94, in various settings, such as: public schools, hospital emergency rooms, northern mental health services and family health teams. I now specialize in providing EMDR therapy, with an eclectic approach that incorporates elements of my other trainings and knowledge. I bring natural aspects of my personality to my therapy sessions: warmth, humour, patience and honesty.

I bring 12 years of experience in the mental health field. I strive to learn and grow with my competency in providing culturally informed service. As a 2SLGBTQ+ ally, I aim to provide a safe space for everyone.
