My name is Ruta Nuguse, and I am a non-Indigenous Ally living on Treaty 6 land. I recently completed a Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology, and I am a Canadian Certified Counsellor (CCC) with Rise Above Psychological Services.


I have experience volunteering with diverse groups, including refugees and immigrants. I use a collaborative approach and strive to support clients in the best way that serves them. I believe that everyone has a unique identity and like to support clients by being present and providing a safe and non-judgemental space. I focus on mindfulness techniques, trauma-informed care and cultural sensitivity when working with clients. I also utilize other interventions/techniques such as trauma focused cognitive behavioural therapy, attachment-based theories, person-centred therapy, DBT, CBT, EMDR and cross-cultural counselling. I believe that acknowledging one's whole self through a holistic lens can support individuals on their path of healing and growth.
