Kimberly Enns is a Registered Social Worker, holding a Master of Social Work degree and a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and Theology from the University of Manitoba.
Kimberly’s therapeutic approach is one of warmth and collaboration, recognizing that people are resilient, have inherent wisdom about their lives, act in ways that meet needs, and are hard-wired for connection with others. She believes that the experience of counselling, whether as an individual, couple or family, should result in greater self-knowledge and self-compassion. Therapy is a venue to share and rework our stories, be validated, recognize and process emotions, strengthen relationships, examine thought processes and develop healthy coping strategies; thereby resulting in healing, personal and relational growth and increased feelings of well-being.
Areas of specialization include trauma recovery, anxiety, depression, adolescent struggles, self-injury behaviour and disordered eating and body image. Kimberly’s approach to counselling is largely informed by Attachment Theory, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy and Mindfulness-Based Therapy. Ultimately she strives to work in a way that best fits for each individual.
Kimberly’s professional experience includes clinical case management, counselling and group facilitation in the child welfare system for high-needs children and youth, as well as in community-based programs for those who struggle with eating disorders and for individuals with intellectual disabilities in conflict with the law. Since 2007, Kimberly has held training seminars across Canada in the areas of crisis response, self-injury behaviour and disordered eating.
