Jody Benninger – MSW, RSW

Hello I’m Jody,

My journey into social work stemmed from doing grassroots work for numerous years, before making my social worker designation official.

I began my social work career in the HIV/AIDS field for several years and this led to working in the USA, and then abroad in developing countries.  After returning from working overseas, I soon realized the value of pursuing a graduate degree in social work.

Following graduation, I have worked in a variety of settings and most recently I’ve held dual roles as an Assistant Clinical Professor (Adjunct) with the Department of Family Medicine at McMaster University, as well as providing therapy to clients at a primary healthcare team.

In collaboration, you and I will work together to decide which approach (or combination of approaches) will best meet your therapeutic goals. I believe in a holistic approach to mental health and wellness and view my role as a guide in assisting you to navigate the circumstances you face, and as a reliable source of support to my clients throughout their journey.  Throughout the therapeutic process,  I will help you to identify and connect with your own inner wisdom and resilience. Please reach out to connect with me and begin or continue your therapeutic journey.
