Therapist Descriptions

 

Jennifer Logan / BA/BEd

Born and raised in Thunder Bay, I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Education from Lakehead University. Following graduation, I moved to Winnipeg and began teaching in the Winnipeg School Division. Teaching soon led to entering the field of Applied Behaviour Analysis with Child & Community Resources. There, I discovered my passion for helping children and youth feel empowered to develop meaningful skills that enrich their lives.

An enthusiastic lifelong learner, my training and experience has a wide range. For over a decade, I have been developing and implementing programming to support many different learning goals. I am trained and have experience with delivering; PEERS, Children’s Friendship Training, Sibshops, Triple P Stepping Stones, Secret Agent Society, Applied Behaviour Analysis, Mindfulness for Educators, and the Zones of Regulation.

Katrena Brindley / BA

Always enjoying being in the outdoors, I began my journey leading canoe trips and teaching leadership skills to children and youth.  I have a mix of outdoor leadership and education training, in addition to graduating from Lakehead University with a BA in Indigenous Learning.  I have always had a natural enthusiasm to help others grow their skills, but the true passion has been helping others increase their independence and life skills in their day to day lives.  In the career setting, this has been through coaching, volunteer work and respite work with Wesway, and as an ABA Facilitator and School Based Intensive Treatment Clinical Lead.

Nearly 15 years ago I began developing social skills and life skills programming for individuals of varying needs and exceptionalities. A significant portion came through working in the autism field as an ABA Therapist with Child & Community Resources, running group services to children and youth with an ASD diagnosis. 

I am trained and have experience with; PEERS School-Based and Teleconference, Sibshops, Sexuality Education, Children’s Friendship Training, Zones of Regulation, Leadership Training, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA).

I continued expanding on my experience as a teacher diagnostician, resource teacher and contract lecture at Lakehead University where I taught introduction to Special Education to teacher candidates. Teaching and learning is a lifelong passion of mine that I thoroughly enjoy sharing with others in any capacity.

Karen Noga / ECE

My name is Karen Noga and I an Early Childhood Educator.  Early in my career I discovered my passion for working with children with exceptionalities.  This passion really led me to zero in on the autism field as there was not a lot of information yet available and I was desperate to learn more.  I have 18 years of hands-on experience working in a variety of Autism settings with children and youth on the Autism Spectrum.  Throughout these years, my passion has continued to grow along with my knowledge and experience.
