Meet Jennifer Reandy

Health and Counselling Services Indigenous Counselor

Jennifer is a registered clinical counsellor working with SFU’s Indigenous Student Centre (ISC). She works from a braided practise that honours Indigenous knowledge, strength-based person/community centered approach and relevant, respectful, mainstream therapeutic orientations that strive for holistic balance (emotional, physical, spiritual, intellectual). She believes in the importance of wrap-around care, especially supporting connections with Elders and cultural teachings, as well as exploration of identity development. She is aware of the impacts of colonization and intergenerational trauma while recognizing the resilience and wellness in communities and culture. Her work is grounded in Indigenous ways of knowing that stress the importance for reciprocity, relevance, responsibility and relationships.
