Jennifer Taun, B.S.W., M.S.W., R.S.W. (Counsellor/Social Worker)
As a Registered Social Worker I specialize in providing supportive counseling to those who may be struggling with a range of life difficulties. I have a passion for working alongside clients to identify their strengths and make positive life changes. I create a relaxed and non-judgmental atmosphere and work in collaboration with my clients to support them in achieving their goals and improve their quality of life. I value holistic healing and looking at the person as a whole.
I hold a Masters of Social Work and I am certified in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I have a broad range of experience working in mental health, trauma, addictions, sexual violence, acquired brain injury, adult conflict and health and wellness. My background has been primarily working with youth, adults and families.
I use evidence based practices that include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Mindfulness, Single Session Counselling, Short Term Supportive Counselling and Positive Parenting Approaches.
Since I’m a Registered Social Worker (RSW) most group insurance plans cover my services (usually 500-1000 dollars per year, or 80-100% of the session fee). Please check your plan for details of your coverage. For those who do not have insurance (or when insurance coverage runs out), I do offer sliding scale fees.
