EBONI O'HAGAN, BSW, RSW
Registered Social Worker
I completed my undergraduate degree in Social Work at the University of Calgary, succeeding a diploma in Social Work at Mount Royal University.
Working with the Provincial Health System, I have supported individuals impacted by mental health and/or addictions. In doing so, I have assisted in building confidence, addressing past trauma/grief, and have utilized a strengths-based, client-centered approach to healing.
This work has guided me in further developing my education and training, focusing on Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT). I have completed my DBT Foundations Course and DBT for Adolescents & Families (DBT-A).\
I am committed to higher education, most recently moving towards a Master of Clinical Social Work.
I GOT YOU!
By day I am a Registered Social Worker with the Alberta College of Social Work (ACSW) by night I can be found in my workshop creating and building.
Mom of two teenage humans and one mischievous pup named Kobe; a passion for people, and a newfound passion for woodworking.
As a visible minority with a life that has been filled with adverse experiences, hardship, and hurdles, I have had to heal, gain the skills to cope, and build myself a toolbox that has created the solid foundation that I continue to build this life on - a life that will not be determined by the circumstances of my past, circumstances that were out of my control.
Rising in Hope was established to provide our communities, individuals their families, and employers with the solid foundation necessary to promote health, wellness, and resilience.
