Josset is a warm, compassionate, flexible, and committed counselor and social worker whose empathy and warmth help to create a safe, nonjudgmental space where clients can process complex issues, get help in overcoming difficult life challenges, and find healing. She offers 13 years of valuable professional experience which includes working effectively and proficiently to resolve a wide variety of issues, including PTSD, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, self-esteem, self-harm, stress management, life transitions, and enhancing coping skills. Central to Josset’s work with her clients is that she is trustworthy, authentic, and respectful. She considers it a privilege to be able to accompany people on their journey of self-understanding, change and healing as they navigate through life difficulties.
With a Master of Social Work Degree from the University of Windsor and a Bachelor of Counselling Degree from Northern Caribbean University in Jamaica, Josset is also a Registered Social Worker (RSW) with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW). She has completed specialized training in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Strength-Based Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Single Session Therapy. Additionally, Josset integrates Narrative Approaches in her practice to assist clients in telling their story and living the kind of life they envision for themselves. She approaches her practice from a strength-based and trauma-informed lens and cultivates a therapeutic relationship with her clients that fosters meaningful exploration, self-discovery, and healing.
As a woman of Afro-Caribbean background, Josset became a counselor because there are not enough places where others can come to breathe, to be, to experience unconditional acceptance, positive reflection, and to create alternative narratives and visions for themselves.
She recognizes the importance of creating a counseling relationship that fosters healing by incorporating an understanding of one’s social location in society and its influence on their experiences and responses to life. Josset creates this safe space with her clients where they can tell their story, gain insight and grow holistically. She is passionate about helping individuals and families to live more wholly and authentically connected with themselves and others.
Josset has worked in adult and children’s mental health, community counselling, advocacy, crisis intervention, and social work. She has also provided clinical and administrative supervision to social work students, interns, and professionals. She understands that when human beings experience any form of trauma or life stressors, it is not uncommon for their lives to unravel. She also knows that sometimes all a person needs is an ear to listen, and a heart that understands in order to help them get through tough times. She is honoured to be a part of the healing process for individuals and families as they overcome challenges, work through life’s difficulties, improve their mental health and become more resilient individuals.
Josset enjoys travelling to new places and learning about new cultures. She appreciates good comedy, listening to soul music, spending quality time with family and friends, and enjoying “me time.”
My great passion is helping people who have been through traumatic, stressful life situations heal as they try to put their lives back together and grow from the experience. I help my clients, who include adults and youth to find healthy perceptions of themselves and strengthen their relationships so they can know themselves as peaceful, complete, safe, and whole.
Breanna is a dedicated and passionate registered Social Worker with over 8 years of experience working with youth and their families in various capacities. With a Master’s Degree in Social Work and a Bachelor’s Degree in Family and Community Services, Breanna specializes in supporting children, youth and their families as they work through the complexities of mental health. She is also experienced in advocating for and with Black youth and families as they navigate systems with histories deeply rooted in anti-Black racism and oppression. Breanna deeply admires the resilience of her clients as she has witnessed their ability to take on the difficult work of seeking support through healing, and bravely confronting the most challenging and traumatic experiences of their lives with the desire for change and growth.
Breanna intentionally works from a client-centred and strengths-based perspective, while collaborating with clients to work through the challenges they bring forth in sessions. She believes that the client is the expert in their experience, and is the most important player in the healing and growth process of counselling. As a therapist, she sees her role as a guide who assists clients in recognizing potential options to help them work through life’s challenges. Once these options are recognized, she honours the client’s autonomy to decide what works best for them, and what would move them closest to their therapeutic goals.
From a very young age, Breanna took interest in family dynamics, and how they shape the experiences of an individual. Her lived and professional experiences have revealed to her that the health and wellness of an individual is heavily dependent on the support system that surrounds them. Breanna believes that individuals are most able to continuously grow into the best versions of themselves when they are given the opportunities and conditions to build healthy relationships that provide space for trust, affirmation, and support through challenging situations in life. She believes that the crux of a healthy therapeutic relationship is trust and transparency and has dedicated her life to offering this space to individuals. In her therapeutic relationships with clients, she offers space and time to build a trusting relationship, and commits to transparency as a vehicle to building trust.
As a West Indian woman of Grenadian descent, Breanna loves listening and dancing to Soca music. Breanna would never pass up an opportunity to visit Grenada where she enjoys spending time with her large family, seeking adventure, eating delicious traditional dishes, and making multiple trips to the beach. Additionally, Breanna is a lover of all things literature, and takes great pride in her ever-growing book collection.
I am a believer that people should be seen and heard! I also believe that people are far more resilient than what we give them credit for. I particularly enjoy working with those who are truly ready for change.
I use a unique and effective form of psychodynamic therapy to treat trauma, anxiety, depression and other difficulties. This involves techniques that differ from traditional therapy. With this said, I also value other evidenced based practices such as Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT), EMDR, Mindfulness and Compassion Focused Therapy.
In sessions, we work collaboratively. I create a space that is free of judgment, where human experiences and emotions can be shared in an uncensored way. I do not use a cookie cutter approach and always tailor the process based on your needs.
Monique is a creative and compassionate social worker who aims to serve her clients through a judgment-free approach to counseling. She first works with her clients to understand their concerns and then supports them in developing and pursuing a plan that promotes their healing and growth. She aims to help clients to break unhealthy patterns, to develop greater coping skills, and to lead more fulfilling and fruitful lives. Her work with clients addresses challenges such as anxiety, coping skills, depression, domestic abuse, life transitions, peer relationships, relationship issues, self-esteem, sexual abuse and stress. Monique’s goal is always to help clients consider their experiences as building blocks rather than roadblocks.
Monique earned a Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) and a Master of Social Work (MSW) from McMaster University. She recognizes the need for counseling sessions to be customized to fit the unique needs, interests, and backgrounds of each client and she strives to create a space that will facilitate change for each client in ways that are suitable for them.
In her free time, Monique enjoys spending time outdoors and listening to live music.
