More about Amadew Walt

I have experience and passion in the areas of addictions, sexual and gender orientation, trauma, sexuality, diversity issues and concerns, and anxiety disorders. My journey as a therapist began at the Edmonton Remand Centre where I developed a cognitive-behavioural approach to support inmates in planning for success after release. Following this I was trained at the University of Alberta’s Sexual Assault Centre utilizing client-centred therapy to help empower survivors. Then I took a position as Addictions Counsellor at Poundmaker’s Lodge where I enjoyed First Nations culture and spirituality as part of addictions work. In my addictions work I addressed trauma, boundaries, assertiveness, and biopsychosocial elements related to addictions. My most recent experiences were as a practicum student at Pride Centre supporting individuals in the LGBTQ2S community, as well as diverse individuals at The Family Centre. I also worked with couples at each of those sites. At the core of my practice I utilize client-centred and solution-focused therapies. However, I also draw from cognitive and behavioural therapies, mindfulness practices, acceptance and commitment therapy, narrative therapy, and art therapy. I genuinely prize forming a strong and positive rapport with each unique individual I see; developing trust and creating a safe space for you to be heard.
