​​Jody Hicks,  MA, RP, CCC, LPC, CYC (Cert.)

   

Originally from a small farm just north of Quebec City, I have been dedicated to helping people heal and grow as far back as I can remember.   

I graduated from Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado with my master’s degree in Counselling Psychology holding a concentration in Wilderness Therapy in May of 2006; I am trained as a Wilderness First Responder and have current First Aid C with AED.  I practise as a Registered Psychotherapist and hold licensure as an RP (Registered Psychotherapist), a CCC (Canadian Certified Counsellor), an LPC (Licensed Professional Counsellor) as well as certification as a Child and Youth Counsellor (Cert.) 

I have worked with a wide diversity of populations and settings, both with individuals and groups, including:

  • - wilderness work with emotionally challenged youth at risk,
  • - intensive outpatient programs for teens and adults struggling with addictions,
  • - emergency mental health services for adults in crisis,
  • - managing an after school program for young girls K-4th grade,
  • - working overnight and day shelters for homeless women
  • - transitional living for young adult women,
  • - mentoring graduate students,
  • - and leading half-day long intensives for families.  


My therapeutic orientation encompasses body-centered approaches, cognitive behavioral therapy, narrative therapy, contemplative interventions, creative exploration, transpersonal psychology, and developmental awareness as supports along the healing path.

I work to support the value of learning from different peoples, natural landscapes and cultures.   Drawing on my contemplative based training, I work to create an atmosphere of understanding and genuine sensitivity without judgment.
