Chandra Hare (Decae) R. Psych. (Provisional), M.Ed.
I believe that the path to healing starts with reconnecting with ourselves, our present, our future, our pasts, our ancestors, our spirits, and/or our family. Who are you? What works for you? What sparks that light inside you? What makes you feel most like you? I recognize that we all have the power within ourselves to bring clarity and healing into our lives. Through a holistic counselling lens, I will work with you, helping you to rediscover who you are.
In addition to my passion for psychology, I also have a passion for energy healing arts, spirituality, the moon, our energy centers in our body (chakras) and divine connection. Using the holistic lens, what sparks your passion? How do you incorporate care of your physical, emotional, social, mental, and spiritual selves? Let’s talk about this within our counselling work to help you understand yourself from many perspectives. I am trauma informed, indigenous allied, and belong to the 2SLGBTQ+ community. I hope to walk alongside you, working with you to reconnect with yourself.
I have experience working with the following:
- Trauma and/or who have
- Intimate partner violence,
- Family violence
- Gender fluidity
- Gender transitions
- Life transitions
My counselling tool bag is eclectic, bringing in tools from Mindfulness, Solution-Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Self-Compassion Therapy, and Cognitive-BehaviouralTherapy. I have recently become trained in Basic Accelerated Resolution Therapy (ART) in July 2022. Within my tool bag is knowledge and professional experience working with and understanding the history of Indigenous Peoples, colonization, and the impact of residential schools.
My background involves counselling with a community-based organization and with the Saskatoon Public School Division.
I am an approved counsellor with Victim Services.
