About Amandeep Jassal, MSW, RSW
Amandeep Jassal, MSW, RSW, is a Registered Social Worker (RSW #12408) governed by the British Columbia College of Social Workers. He graduated with a Master of Social Work (MSW) degree from UBC with a focus in clinical counselling. Some of his specialized training includes CBT (Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy), DBT (Dialectical Behaviour Therapy), Indigenous Cultural Safety Training, Suicide Risk Assessment Training, and Crisis Intervention Training.
In 2012, he began working in the field of mental health as a family counsellor for a non-profit agency. He was later hired by the Fraser Health Authority as a mental health counsellor for the geriatric mental health team. In search of a new challenge, he took a position in a small, remote, Indigenous community working with the BC Government to provide counselling services to children, youth and their families. In 2018, he returned to Vancouver, where he currently provides evidence-based treatment for anxiety, depression and the effects of trauma.
In a genuine, safe, and supportive counselling environment, Amandeep uses cognitive-behavioural therapy and dialectical-behavioural therapy to help his clients target recurring negative thoughts and to help improve their mood and behaviour. He also brings a deep understanding of attachment theory and systems theory, which can be effective for uncovering root causes of interpersonal conflict, helping his clients to establish more meaningful relationships.
