Candace Neufeld, MSW, RSW
Candace has worked as a therapist, clinical social worker, and group facilitator for the last 16 years in a number of social service and community-based agencies. She brings a deep commitment to social justice and mental health justice in her work, and practices from a place of cultural humility, anti-oppression, and respect for diverse lived experience. The therapeutic approaches Candace is most passionate about are informed by narrative, collaborative, and feminist ideas.
Candace has worked with young people and adults of all genders and gender identities as well as people from many cultural backgrounds. Some of the issues she has experience addressing individually and in groups include: mental health/wellness, trauma, childhood abuse, grief and loss, and child welfare. She has experience in hosting workshops on a wide-range of topics related to mental health.
At this time she is most interested in group work and workshops that center story and story-telling and also those that contribute to rich and critically informed conversations about wellness and mental health. She views group work as ‘circle building’ and she is interested in supporting many kinds of circle building – but particularly those that are participant or peer led and/or co-created in a meaningful way by organizations and the people that they wish to serve.
