My name is Cassidy Wilson, and I am a Certified Canadian Counsellor (CCC), and a Licensed Counselling Therapist (Candidate) (LCT-C), practicing in Oromocto, NB where I own, and run my private practice, Blue Spruce Counselling & Consulting out of my home.
My goal, and hope is to help provide a warm, safe place where you can work through whatever challenges you are facing. I believe in value based living, and hope to empower you to do the same; life can be challenging, but I believe we can still find little glimmers of magic in the moments between it all.
I graduated from the University of New Brunswick with a Masters of Education – in Counselling Psychology, and successfully defended my thesis which focused on the relationship between basic need satisfaction, and self-reported symptoms of depression. After completing my internship at UNB Counselling Services in 2018, I was hired on as the 2SLGBTQIA+ Wellness Coordinator, where I support queer and trans students on campus through education outreach, policy work, program development, advocacy, and previously, counselling.
Prior to my time at UNB, I worked for Alberta Health Services (AHS) in a variety of roles gaining exposure to multi-level health care services working along side a variety of different professionals including, social workers, physiotherapists, nurses, and occupational therapists to name a few. In my spare time, I volunteered as a facilitator with a 2SLGBTQIAP+ youth group in Calgary, AB where I worked for five years working with queer and trans youth (aged 12-25) providing a safe space to gather, eat food, provide education, and just be.
