Julianna Morin, MSW/RSW (they/she)
I am honoured to live and work in my home community in Omamawenini Anishinaabe-aki – the unceded, unsurrendered territory of the Algonquin Anishinaabe First Nation. I identify as a fat, queer femme and I am proud to be in ongoing, daily evolving co-conspiratorship with 2SLGBTQIA+, BIPOC, and disability communities. I aim to mobilize my traditional teachings, my roles and responsibilities, and my social work experience to inspire individuals and families to achieve social and environmental justice.
As a registered social worker in good standing with the Ontario College of Social Workers and the Ontario Association of Social Workers, and in compliance with both the Regulated Health Professions Act, 1991, and the Social Work and Social Service Work Act, 1998, I provide provide affordable, accessible, culturally-relevant psychotherapy and counselling services.
I engage from an anti-oppressive, structural approach to social work which prioritizes respect for individual agency and autonomy, client-centred advocacy, community engagement, reflexive thinking, trauma-informed care, and recognizing the social determinants of mental health. Over the course of my career in community mental health to date, I have had the privilege of working extensively in direct practice with families of diverse lived experiences, which has allowed me to develop a complex understanding of the intersections and impacts of social locations on the overall thriving of individuals within their communities. My continuing professional development is focused on supplanting my knowledge of social systems with experience in radical and critical-intersectional-feminist therapy approaches as well as evidence-based modalities; I have training and hold certificates in narrative therapy, Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT), Motivational Interviewing (MI), Trauma-Focused Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (TF-CBT), and trigger neutralization.
