Skye McCrindle RSW, MSW
Skye is a Registered Social Worker who specializes in body liberation and self-esteem counselling.
Skye is white, genderqueer, bi, and self-identified fat
person with lived experience of mental health and
body shame struggles.
Skye believes that everybody and every body is inherently worthy, that people are the experts on themselves, and that supportive
community is a powerful way to heal.
As a trauma-informed practitioner, they aim for a safe therapeutic space that is centered
around consent, choice, and autonomy.
They are particularly passionate about working
with folx who want to reject diet culture and anti-fat bias, and improve their relationship
with their bodies, food, and themselves. Skye
works from an anti-oppressive and social
justice-oriented perspective, grounded in body
liberation and intersectional feminism.
Skye uses a variety of approaches in their work which include self-compassion, mindful noticing of thoughts, emotions, and sensations, and embodied (or somatic) practices.
When Skye isn’t working, they are spending time in fat community, trying not to get cat fur into their knitting, dancing in their living room, and spending time amongst trees.
