Zelda Hippolyte, MSW of Optimal Life Mental Health Strategies I am a bilingual clinical social worker trained in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT). I incorporate mindfulness techniques in my practice in order to provide a holistic approach to my clients. This means that we will also discuss (if you agree) your exercise, dietary and other habits that impact your general well-being. As a professional social worker, I am trained to treat the individual taking into account his or her psychosocial context along with the presenting issue.

I also provide couples therapy. I have personal and professional experience of the concerns and lifestyles of military members and their families.
