Hello, my name is Tiffany Petite. I was born and raised in Calgary, Alberta. I became a Social Worker by both personal and professional evolution. I have practiced as a Registered Social Worker for 15 years. I hold a Master’s Degree in Social Work from the University of Waterloo and an Undergraduate Degree in Social Work from Thompson Rivers University. I am currently being supported in earning my specialization in Clinical Social Work with the Alberta College of Social Workers.
I am an evidence based-practitioner who has extensive training and experience working with adults and families. My training has included models such as Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness & Prolonged Exposure Therapy. I endorse a client centred and collaborative approach. I consider myself as inclusive, welcoming and I strive to incorporate cultural safety in my daily work.
As the owner of Virtuous Circle Counselling, my vision is to create a safe and warm space where individuals can feel empowered to take back control in their lives with the support of a trusting ally, their therapist. I believe in the intrinsic strengths that individuals have to weather the storm of life but I also believe that sometimes we need support to navigate these uncharted territories.
