Jathina Blais is a Registered Social Worker (R.S.W.) with a Master of Social Work degree from Dalhousie University. She practices psychotherapy with a focus on sexual assault trauma, domestic violence trauma, childhood trauma, addictions, depression, anger, anxiety, low self-esteem, body image, personality disorders, and relationship issues. Jathina's therapeutic practices are rooted in feminist counselling, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT), solution focused therapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy (attachment theory). Jathina is a trauma-trained therapist.
As a strengths-based, empowerment, and client-centred therapist, Jathina values the healing relationship of a positive and trusting client-therapist relationship and works with you to identify and address your goals to create a specific counselling plan.
Jathina has a special interest in working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse, sexual assault, childhood trauma, and domestic violence and has been providing therapeutic counselling since 2010. She understands that these traumatic experiences can often result in a loss of self, unhelpful coping, and feelings of isolation and despair. Together, we can find hope and create change.
