Rhonda Legge is a clinical social worker who has been working in Newfoundland and Labrador for the past 16 years in the areas of mental health, children’s health, and parenting. Rhonda has Bachelor’s degrees in both Psychology and Social Work, a Certificate in Criminology, and a Master’s degree in Social Work. She is a current registered member of the Newfoundland and Labrador College of Social Workers (NLCSW).
Rhonda has worked in many fields including: criminal justice, addictions, children’s health, Neonatal Care, Palliative Care, and women’s health. However, Rhonda’s passion and focus has primarily been working with children, youth, and their families. Throughout her career Rhonda has worked with families in areas that pertain to mental health and parenting through both individual and group interventions. Rhonda specializes in working with individuals of all ages whom have experienced trauma, anxiety, grief and loss (including infant loss), difficulties with divorce and separation, and attachment and bonding. In recognizing the difficulties that accompany having children, Rhonda has a passion in assisting caregivers through the difficulties of parenting through supportive interventions, assisting parents with achieving insight into their child’s perspective, and providing parenting information and strategies.
In Rhonda’s practice she utilizes several theoretical approaches where needed or appropriate with clients. These include: Brief Solution-Focused, Narrative, Cognitive Behavioural, Acceptance and Commitment, Family, Sand Tray, and Play Therapy approaches. Therapy is conducted through a trauma-informed, strengths-based and emotionally supportive lens. Rhonda believes in family healing as mental health issues impact an individual’s entire support network. The ultimate goal of therapy is to achieve peace and wellness, and the therapy goes wherever the client needs it to go to achieve this goal.
