My Story


Selena is a Registered Psychologist diverse ancestry; settler ancestry (predominantly Irish, English, French, as well as Eastern and Southern European ancestry) and Indigenous Mi’kmaq ancestry. She is currently working to reconnect with her family's Mi'kmaq history and heritage. Selena was raised as a settler on treaty 7 territory, and has a passion for promoting Indigenous health and culture. Selena is honored to work on Treaty 4,6, & 7. Selena has been helping since 2007, initially as a volunteer victim service advocate, then later as a youth and family counsellor, crisis counsellor, and family support worker, before registering as a psychologist. As a practicing psychologist, Selena has worked in the areas of correctional mental health, including at an Indigenous healing lodge, as well as in the areas of grief and loss, family resourcing, private practice, weight management, as well as facilitating mental health group counselling at a walk-in counselling centre. Selena draws from a multimodal approach, specifically using an understanding of the value of engaging somatically, experientially, and relationally.
