Hi, I’m Chantelle Koop.
I’m psyched to start a new adventure as part of the Brunswick Creek Team!
I am a reformed city girl; my husband and I live on an acreage, southeast of Swift Current, with our two sons and an albino corn snake (she was a classroom gift that became a home gift) and several farm cats.
I grew up a hop, skip and a jump away, in Moose Jaw, SK. I attended French Immersion from kindergarten to grade 12, and graduated with a bilingual diploma. During my last years of high school and throughout my Bachelor of Education degree program, I worked as an aide at Valley View Center, a care facility for individuals with intellectual and physical disabilities. My daily interactions with the residents taught me inclusion, compassion, humility and the value of a smile.
I moved here, to Swift Current, for a teaching position, where I met my husband and I have been here ever since. Teaching taught me creativity, problem-solving, patience, the value of multiple perspectives and the excitement of helping others be successful.
My LOVE for learning continued to beckon me; so in 2013, I returned to the University of Regina to complete my Master of Education in Educational Psychology degree. And in 2017, I completed my Post Degree Certificate in Special Education through the University of Saskatchewan.
I have a passion for assisting people find solutions that help improve their school/work life, relationships, and overall sense of well-being. I feel strongly that the knowledge and skills I have acquired will help me meet the needs of my clients. My counselling background is in Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Reality Therapy, though, I will be taking Accelerated Resolution Therapy training in the coming months and look forward to offering that as well. I will also be assisting clients with identifying cognitive strengths/weaknesses through assessments and provide recommendations and interventions. This summer, I was excited to complete the ADOS-2 & ADI-R training, and offer autism inquiry to my skill set.
I am a HUGE football fan (Saskatchewan Roughrider & Green Bay Packers). I also enjoy reading just about anything with a cup of tea (I have a tea-rific collection) and spend hours crafting; I’ll try anything that allows me to challenge my creativity. Also, I love puns.
