Skylar has been dedicated to cultivating individual and community capacity for over 24 years as a registered clinical counsellor, educator and community psychology practitioner. Her practice is trauma/violence-informed, intentionally integrating therapies such as Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) and DBT/MBCT (Mindfulness-Based CBT) to address the unique growth of TRU students through individual and group counselling as well as psycho-educational/experiential workshops.
