Eric Eisener

Hi! My name is Eric, I am excited to be a therapist with the Headstart team. I have recently completed my Master of Arts in Counselling Psychology. I bring with me over 15 years of experience of working with children, youth and families in different settings and aim to provide a supportive, safe, accepting environment to the families I work with. 

 I previously completed a Bachelor of Social Work degree and have worked in supporting children, youth and families in Community Services as well as a school social worker with Schools Plus for the past 6 years. 

My therapy is informed by a number of approaches including Play Therapy (Level 1 Training completed), Emotion Focused Family Therapy (clinical training completed), and CBT and ACT approaches.  I have also completed continuing education certificates in Child and Adolescent Mental Health (through Douglas College) and Solution Focused Therapy Training (through Dalhousie University).

 

My goal and stance as a therapist is the following:

1)      That clients and families are given a safe space to explore their stories and experiences, to gain awareness, and to fully experience their experiences;

2)      That our stories and experiences matter and have an impact on us; 

3)      To listen to, validate and raise awareness of these stories; 

4)      To work and walk with the client towards healing and wholeness as they see it. 

 

Outside of my work I enjoy spending time outdoors, enjoying beaches, hiking, exercising, playing sports, music, and time with my family and friends.
