Kaitlyn Dueck- Counsellor
Kaitlyn Dueck, MSW, RSW
Hi! My name is Kaitlyn and I’m so excited to join the team of counsellors here at CFS Saskatoon! Equipped with a Master of Social Work degree, I am committed to using anti-oppressive and relational approaches in counselling. I have a particular passion for using play-based techniques to support children, youth, and families as they navigate the ebbs and flows of life. When I’m not in the office, I can almost always be found outside! I love to spend my time backcountry camping in the summer, and cross-country skiing in the winter. Lately I’ve been practicing self-compassion as I am (trying) to teach myself to sew.
