Areas of Practice
Welcome, my name is Dawn Maskine and I have been working with individuals and groups in the fields of community-based development, education, health and wellness, and physical rehabilitation for over 20 years. I have extensive experience working with diverse populations over seas and within Nova Scotia.
My therapeutic work has a strong focus on attachment trauma, intimate partner violence, whole health, grounding and self care, boundary setting, and communication. I follow the philosophy that people are not their problems, behaviours, or past. If we can externalize and deconstruct the latter, by tapping into values and strengths, then there is potential to rewrite the narrative moving
First, and foremost, I spend time connecting and building strong relationships with people, as I believe that trust, communication, and boundary setting are the foundations of a healthy therapeutic relationship. Looking at the roles that physical health and safety play on the presenting concerns are as equally important. My hope is that you feel safe and supported.
Outside of counselling, I enjoy teaching fitness classes, swimming, hiking, spending time with my family, coaching, and inventing new healthy treat recipes. Looking forward to connecting
In Good Health,
