The MCA Wholistic Health & Wellness Program would like to introduce their new full-time Mental Health Therapist to the community!

Wennietanoron Oakes is a graduate from the University of Ottawa with a Masters in Counselling Psychology. She is a member of the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) and the Canadian Counselling & Psychotherapy Association.

Wennietanoron has worked in various roles throughout the community of Akwesasne, most recently with the Ahkwesahsne Mohawk Board of Education for over 19 years with families and children. She is also certified in Attachment Centered Play Therapy, which offers clinicians a holistic, play-based approach to child and family therapy.

“My approach to counselling is integrative as each client is unique, as well as their families. It is important for families, children, and individuals to be given the tools to help assist in growth, change and provide the support that is needed,” said Oakes.

Wennietanoron will be practicing and supporting mental health in all three districts of Akwesasne. For more information, please contact the Tekanikonrahwa:kon Wholistic Health & Wellness Program at 613-575-2341 ext. 3115.
