Linden Lalonde, MSW, RSW

I am a queer social worker with over 10 years of experience supporting youth and adults navigating drug use and addiction, poverty, trauma, mental illness, violence, colonialism and chronic, complex health conditions. I recently completed my Masters of Social Work, in which I specialized in counselling.
As a queer woman who grew up working class, and as someone who also benefits from multiple sites of privilege, including white supremacy, it is incredibly important to me that my work and practice is feminist, anti-racist, anti-oppressive, and queer. I am committed to continuing to work for change, justice and liberation, particularly for those who are most harmed by the multiple and interwoven systems of oppression in our society, namely Black and Indigenous folks, people of colour, LGBTQ2SIA+ people, disabled folks, poor folks, and people who are undocumented or at risk of deportation.

Approaches/techniques: Narrative Therapy, CBT, feminist, queer, trauma-informed, anti-oppressive practice
