Mary Badalian, MSW
Social Worker, Psychotherapist
Greetings and welcome to a world where you can be the captain of your own sailboat and steer it in the direction of your dreams, despite the direction of the winds you may experience! My name is Mary Badalian, a Registered Social Worker with McDowall Integrative Psychology & HealthCare and I am pleased and honoured that you have decided to take the first or second step in your healing story and self-love journey with me.
I have a particular interest in the person centred and holistic approaches to therapy, looking within to find your own strengths and available resources. Mainly drawing on Strengths-Based Therapy, Solution Focused Brief Therapy, Cognitive therapies and Mindfulness and Meditation, I will challenge you to confront the pain, to see your issues in a new light and will support and celebrate you throughout the way!
I am probably not your typical therapist and there is very little I haven’t seen or heard in my social work practice over the years. I have practiced in both community-based agencies as well as the private/corporate world. While working with me, you will be greeted with empathy, compassion, and flexibility at working to create a steady and productive pace that is right for you.
I’m an old soul who loves yoga and its pillars, meditation, going on hikes in nature, spending time by the water or at the beach as I find it is very therapeutic. I also enjoy gardening, reading up on quantum physics and spending time with my friends and family as they are key support systems for me.
Cheers to sailing the seas!
