Claire Benadé

Registered Social Worker

Ms. Claire Benadé obtained a Master of Social Work from the University of Calgary in 2020 and is a Registered Social Worker on our team servicing Alberta. Claire offers in person sessions in Airdrie, as well as virtual sessions to clients across Alberta to allow access for those who may live in rural communities or simply find comfort in attending sessions from their home.

Ms. Benadé has experience working with adults, children/adolescents, couples, and families treating a variety of concerns such as perinatal mental health, depression, trauma, anxiety, grief/loss, addictions, financial and work stress, sexuality, gender identity, parent/child conflict and family dynamics at home. She values a co-authorship for treatment goals, in a client-centered, trauma-informed approach. She is trained in contemporary Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy, Dialectical Behaviour Therapy, and brief (4 to 6 session) Solution-Focused Therapy. For couples seeking improved relationships, Ms. Benadé utilizes the Gottman method for relationship analysis to achieve marital/relationship stability. She enjoys helping couples and individuals through the use of her arsenal of core competencies which includes a wide range of techniques to choose from for the best suited approach for each individual/family.

As an FSCD (Family Support for Children with Disabilities) approved support, I am able to work with your case worker and specialized team to ensure your child and family are receiving the mental health support you need. 

Appointments are 50 minutes with 10 minutes set aside to plan for the next treatment session, at a billing rate of $200.00 per hour. If you require a 90 minute first visit to cover your history well, or for couples who prefer more time to discuss matters, these appointments are available. These lengthier appointments are at the billing rate of $300.00 per session with a ten-minute treatment planning after 80 minutes. For those with coverage through work, Registered Social workers are typically covered, and once you confirm this with your coverage provider, you can provide the receipt which is mailed to you the same day, which allows reimbursement with ease. Ms. Benadé can consult with your physician of care, school personnel, or other health care providers, with your permission, if you wish a team approach to address matters of health and wellness, or to coordinate therapy combined with medication management.

Ms. Benadé is accepting new clients now and is available to support you in what you already know, play to your strengths, empower you, and help guide you with her training and knowledge as you achieve your treatment goals. Let the journey begin!
