Social Worker Melanie Barber

Melanie Barber

Social Worker

It has always been a privilege to witness people’s strengths and ability to adapt to life’s challenges after experiencing trauma. I have walked alongside children, youth and families in crisis while working in mental health and addictions as a medical Social Work at the IWK Health Centre.  I have witnessed the healing that can occur with support over and over again. It continues to inspire me which is why I am thrilled to continue this work as a part of Rising Tides Healing Centre.

I am drawn to working with those who have experienced trauma or any challenging life circumstance and those who live with mental health challenges.  I can help process your experiences, highlight your innate strengths and bring balance and wellness back to everyday life. I utilize a variety of treatment modalities from Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) to Brief Solution Focused Therapy all while using a trauma informed lens in my approach. I offer a safe space for confidential and compassionate therapy that is focused on your goals. Let’s connect!
