Ledja’s Professional Bio

Where there’s a will, there’s a way.

—Ancestral wisdom

Where there’s a will, there is always a way. As a child therapist at Kids Reconnect, my role is to help kids, parents, and families find a wonderful way to wellness that works for their unique needs.

I hold a bachelor’s degree in Social Work and a Master’s degree in Social Work with a clinical specialization from the University of Calgary and am a Registered Social Worker in good standing with the Alberta College of Social Work.

My specialty is providing counselling for children, parents, families, couples, and groups, supporting them through life transitions, anxiety, depression, anger, increased stress, self-esteem challenges, relationship difficulties, grief, and trauma. I believe in using a collaborative and integrative approach, often drawing from Solution Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Attachment, Play Therapy, Dialectical Behavioural Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy.

I look forward to helping you as a parent to develop the skill to support your child in growing their future areas of Superhero sparkle, in the most wonderful way possible. To complement my child therapist services at Kids Reconnect, I also offer couples counselling for parents at Couples Reconnect.
