Free to Fort McMurray Persons Displaced by the Wildfires

Dr Johanssen 2016046

A long time supporter of the Edmonton Cat Fanciers Club has graciously offered her services to families displaced or affected by the wildfires of Northern Alberta.

Dr. Eunice Johannson Registered Psychologist is offering free group counselling for residents of Fort McMurray who have either experienced the loss of their cat, dog, horse, bunny rabbit, bird etc. or are uncertain of the outcome for their dear one(s).  Dr. Johannson has extensive experience as Facilitator for the Pet Bereavement Support Group for many years with the Northern Alberta Pet Therapy Society.  She also has worked many years with employees of oilfield companies there through Employee Assistance Benefit plans, and has expertise in trauma counselling and Critical Incident Stress debriefing.  Importantly, she grew up within an animal loving family on a farm in Saskatchewan and continues to be passionate about all furry and feathered ones we are blessed with and has personally experienced losses over years.

Dr. David Wong Psychiatrist is generously donating use of office space to help out.

Individuals who would like to come and participate are requested to contact Dr. Eunice Johannson directly at (780) 975-4383 or drj@shaw.ca to register.  Please note that space is limited, with the maximum number of people for this group being 12 so there would be no further registration for these sessions after 12 people have registered.

 

Anyone preferring individual or family counselling can also contact Dr. Johannson, and a reduced fee will be arranged for sessions.  Remember with this, if you have extended benefit insurance coverage (e.g., Blue Cross, Sun Life etc.) most of the fee is paid back to you with a receipt for payment when counselling services are provided by a registered psychologist.
