"There is no greater agony than the untold story inside of you"
- Maya Angelou
I’m Karla Ethier, a Registered Social Worker based in Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. I was born and raised in Saskatchewan and love this province and its people. Since obtaining my Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) in 2005 and then my Master of Social Work (MSW) in 2010, the majority of my career has been spent in Northern Saskatchewan, practicing in the communities of Meadow Lake, La Ronge and Prince Albert.
I completed my play therapy training through the Rocky Mountain Play Therapy Institute in Calgary in 2012. I go above and beyond to help my clients through any challenges they may be facing. I also have extensive experience with traditional talk therapy techniques and like to incorporate different modalities in working with my child and adult clients.
AREAS OF SPECIALIZATION
While I am making every effort to reduce the spread of Covid-19 and other illnesses in my office, it is impossible to guarantee that you will not be exposed to Covid-19 while visiting the office location.
I am offering virtual sessions during the pandemic for those who might be uncomfortable with face-to-face sessions.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.
Office and contact areas will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected between clients.
Masks in my office are optional. It is preferred that masks are worn by both myself and the client while walking through the waiting area to my office.
I will have a buffer time between appointments to avoid cross-contact and to allow for cleaning.
To minimize contact with others who use the space, clients can contact me by phone when they arrive so they can come directly into the office. Parents who are waiting for a child can opt to wait in the waiting room or come back to pick up their child.
STAY AT HOME
Please do not attend your appointment at the office if you do not feel well or if you have identified other Covid-19 risk factors (i.e. flu-like symptoms, exposure to Covid-19, travel, etc). If you cannot attend in person, perhaps we can arrange a virtual or telephone session.
