Ruth-anne Donellsen is a practicum student who is currently completing her Master of Education (Counselling) at Acadia University and holds a Bachelor of Science, Psychology from University of Victoria. Ruth-anne offers a wide range of experiences in mentorship, coordination, program creation and facilitation while clearly demonstrating a mandate to help others be successful according to their own personal and cultural definitions. Ruth-anne takes an active role in addressing environmental, institutional, and societal level barriers to this success through social justice and advocacy efforts and will provide flexibility to adapt and engage with intersecting identities of gender, culture, neurology, and (dis)ability. This leads Ruth-anne to work with inclusive modalities and therapeutic techniques that can better support each client uniquely in a positive and identity-affirming way. Ruth-anne will be under supervision at Sound Connections Therapy Services between September 2021 throughout April 2022.
