Dr. Baldwin (she/her) holds a PhD in Educational Psychology and a Masters Degree in Counselling Psychology. She is a Certified Canadian Counsellor through the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association (CCPA).
Amanda spent most of her life in Alberta, where she completed grade school, a Bachelor of Arts (Majors in Psychology and English), a Post-Graduate Certificate in Counselling, a Masters in Counselling Psychology, and a Post Masters Certificate focused in Group Counselling.
After grad school, Amanda spent 18 months in Nunavut territory, in an Internship as a Psychologist.
She returned home to the prairies and arrived in Saskatchewan for her doctoral work. While taking courses in Regina, she met her life partner and has since come to call LeRoy, SK home.
Amanda has practiced in the counselling field for more than ten years and the helping professions more generally for over 15. Amanda recently completed EMDR training and is subsequently developing her capacities to work with people experiencing varying degrees and types of dissociation.
Amanda also utilizes narrative inquiry/therapy and feminist practice. She has trained in and used solutions focused (brief) therapy, motivational interviewing (primarily with addictions counselling), and cognitive/behavioral therapies. At the end of the day, Amanda believes that it is the working alliance (relationship) forged between counsellor and client that determine the effectiveness of the work.
Today, Amanda works part time as a School Counsellor and also teaches University courses. She has a small private counselling practice out of her home in LeRoy and is available flexibly to talk or meet with you to discuss potential counselling relationships.
