Brigitte Gignac, MSW

Social Worker


Brigitte is a registered social worker since 1996 and holds a master’s degree in Social Work from l'Université de Moncton since 2016.

She has experience working with a wide range population (individuals of all ages, couples, families, groups), in fields related to child/adult protection, probation, family enhancement, gender and/or roles-based violence, mental health, acute psychiatry, and as a provincial clinical consultant  within child psychiatry and concurrent disorders treatment teams.


She practices with an awareness of Aboriginal People’s challenges – and considered an ally – having worked in three different native communities (NB, QC.) and in two territories in northern Canada. She is currently a designated mental health service provider with Health Canada, offering crisis response to these individuals in the Atlantic region and Quebec province.

EMDR therapy clinician since 2017 (certified level), she also holds certificates in mediation, hypnosis, and in critical incident and stress management response. She is currently enrolled in a basic neuroscience certificate, since September 2022.

Brigitte has recently completed a year in a specialized sexual assault crisis centre in Alberta, working as a front-line emergency responder, alongside survivors who have been touched by sexual violence (historical or current), assaults, human trafficking and/or sexual exploitation. 

Having returned to the fold in northern NB, she now focuses her practice on anything trauma related (in-utero, childhood, developmental, intergenerational, attachment-focused, sexual abuse, physical, emotional, verbal, addictions, grief, suicide, natural disaster, vehicle accidents, etc.).
