About Sharmishta Paul
I am an internationally trained mental health professional with a bachelor's and master's in Psychology with a clinical specialization. Currently, I’m enrolled in a bridging program for psychotherapist registration who are internationally trained.
As I learned more about the complexities of mental health and the impact it has on individuals and their families, I became increasingly passionate about pursuing a career in psychotherapy. I believe that everyone has the potential to live a fulfilling and satisfying life, and that psychotherapy can play a critical role in helping individuals overcome the challenges that prevent them from reaching their full potential.
As an intake worker, I am committed to providing compassionate and non-judgmental support to help individuals navigate to a suitable therapist or program and I look forward to being a part of your journey towards healing and growth.
About Meg Rowe
I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from Queen’s University and am currently completing a Master of Social Work degree at Dalhousie University.
I have extensive research and clinical experience in the field of suicide science. My research focuses on assessing how past experiences of suicidal thoughts and behaviours influence attention to suicide-relevant images, and whether patterns of gaze toward these images predict future suicide risk.
Presently, my research has shifted to exploring the development, implementation, and efficacy of different crisis response models. I hope to produce knowledge that can be used to improve current crisis intervention strategies to better support folx experiencing a mental health crisis.
In addition, I have experience working in community mental health settings in both Kingston, ON and Halifax, NS. Upon graduating from my MSW, I wish to pursue a career as a Clinical Social Worker.
