My name is Declan Amadi; I am a committed and empathic mental health therapist with several years of experience in mental health care, advocacy, and clinical service delivery. I hold a master’s degree in clinical social work, specializing in direct practice with individuals and families. I also hold a master’s degree in Bio-medical ethics from the Linkoping University Sweden, a bachelor’s degree in Philosophy (B.Phil.), and bachelor’s degree in Theology/Religious (B.d) from Urban University Italy. I am registered with the Manitoba College of Social Workers, and a member of the Canadian counseling and psychotherapy association.
I am experienced and vast in supporting clients to navigate through a variety of psychological, social, physical and environmental challenges. I work from an anti-oppressive, anti-racist, feminist and person-centered framework, to help my clients achieve their optimal bio-psycho-social wellbeing. I work with clients from various backgrounds, cultures, identities, languages, and life perspectives.
My personal and professional values wrap around the culture of respect, empathy, care, and commitment. My goal is to ensure that my clients leave the therapy sessions feeling empathized, understood, empowered and optimistic for the future.
