Cindy Mackie, Registered Occupational Therapist
Helping You Move Forward
I am a registered Occupational Therapist in good standing with the New Brunswick Association
of Occupational Therapists (NBAOT) and Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists
(CAOT). I obtained a Master’s of Science in Occupational Therapy from Dalhousie University.
Prior to this, I also graduated from Dalhousie University with an Honours Bachelor’s of Science
degree in Psychology.
Occupational Therapy is a holistic, client-centered profession that addresses the emotional,
cognitive, physical, and environmental aspects of a person’s everyday life. As a mental health
occupational therapist, I use a strength-based approach that builds upon skills and supports that
you already have in place. The goal is always to promote positive mental and emotional
wellbeing and get you back to the routines, roles, and activities that are most meaningful to you.
During sessions, I collaborate with each client to learn what is most important to them and their
family. I combine my own strengths with yours to create a trusting and positive therapeutic
relationship where we can each learn from each other to create positive change. Together, we
discuss goals, the present situation, and develop an individualized plan. I draw upon principles of
neuroscience, sensory integration, developmental frameworks, and cognitive-behavioural
frameworks based on each client’s needs. Lastly, providing trauma-informed is incredibly
important to me, as is honouring the mind-body-spirit connection.
