how are you! my names are Good Hearted Woman and Sweet Pine Woman. I am Cree/Métis and grew up in central Alberta, about 45 minutes west of where nohkom Elizabeth Jane Pruden's scrip land was issued. I have lived in the Calgary region on and off since 2013, working extensively with the Siksikaitsitapi (Blackfoot speaking people) in my role as associate professor of counselling psychology & Indigenous education at the University of Calgary.
my work focuses on community and organizational development, incorporating holistic contemporary and traditional Indigenous approaches in supporting individual, family, and community wellness. I do individual, group, community, and organizational consultations, as well as workshops and trainings. I have also completed Indigenous Focusing-Oriented Therapy training, and am a trainer with the program. I will be offering counselling services with maskihkiy when I have completed my registration. I am also a helper and participant in various ceremonies, and work with my Elders and mentors to learn what I can of traditional approaches to wellness.
I believe each person, each family, each community, has the medicine they need to live a good life. I see my role as facilitating (re)connection with that medicine.
I am currently on maternity leave, caring for my newborn baby boy, and will be returning to providing services later in 2021.
