Meg Grudeski BA (Psychology), MA (Counselling Psychology), CCC
Meg began her work in the mental health and counselling field more than a decade ago, working with street outreach teams and in youth shelters. Her harm reduction approach was honed in that work, and continues to grow out of a core belief in meeting folks where they're at in their lives. Since moving with her partner to the Yukon in 2013, Meg completed her formal graduate studies in counselling psychology, adopted two "Yukon Special" rescue dogs, completed her registration as a Canadian Certified Counsellor (C.C.C), and has recently been added as a Health Canada service provider. Her counselling practice is complemented by her work as a Master Trainer and facilitator of both Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) and SafeTALK. Through these educational workshops, Meg has been fortunate to travel the territory, and provide suicide safety training to more than 500 Yukoners.
Meg works primarily from a narrative and humanistic lens, with clinical experience in solution-focused, harm reduction, and cognitive-behavioural models. She has specialized experience with teens and youth, working in Northern contexts, and with addictions.
Presently, Meg provides services to individual persons – of any gender or orientation – aged 10 and older. She is currently accepting new clients to her caseload. Meg has been approved by most benefits coverage, is Health Canada eligible (NIHB and IRS programs), and accepts private pay.
