What is therapy?
Psychotherapy and counselling are primarily talk-based approaches that are intended to help people improve and maintain their mental health and well-being. Therapy can involve individual, group, or family meetings with a professional.
When embarking on your mental health journey, it is important to ensure that you choose a professional who is registered and licensed with a regulatory College in your region. Robin Cann MSW, RSW is registered as a Private Practice Social Worker with the Nova Scotia College of Social Workers (www.nscsw.org).

What types of therapy does Robin offer?
As a strengths-based registered social worker, I will always strive to “meet you where you are,” by collaborating on therapy goals and objectives, and ensuring that your needs and wishes are at the centre of our work together. You bring many skills and resiliencies with you to this process, to which I will tailor my approach in order to support you in addressing the challenges that have arisen in your life. My approach to psychotherapy is primarily informed by Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (ISTDP). I also have advanced training in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Motivational Interviewing (MI), which I will incorporate aspects of within our work together, when it fits.
