Danielle Peebles, RSW holds an MSW-IK (Indigenous Knowledges) from the University of Manitoba. Danielle works with individuals, families and communities as a part of her practice, and she is committed to making good relationships with folks she works with. She works at Jonah on Fridays only.
Danielle has ties to three First Nation communities in Treaty 1 and Treaty 2 territories; Sagkeeng First Nation, Keeseekowenin First Nation and Peguis First Nation, and her urban home is in the North End community of Winnipeg where she is raising three children with her partner. Their entire family is proud of strong ties to all their communities.
Since becoming a social worker in 2013, Danielle has worked in the health system in hospital and community health clinics and feels strongly about advocacy and bringing light to systemic inequities. Danielle wanted to become a social worker to help folks on their healing journeys and engage with individuals, families, communities and systems in a good way to help shift and make meaningful change.
Danielle's work is rooted in two eyed seeing (ie: accessing western and indigenous world views*), intersectional theory, feminist approaches,
trauma informed and harm reduction approaches, anti-oppressive, anti-racist and anti-Indigenous racist approaches to care. Danielle is an ally to 2SLGBTQIA+ community members, and is part of the BIPOC community.
Danielle enjoys attending ceremony and feels strongly connected to traditional ways of being, seeing and healing. Danielle loves to bead, paint and sew as forms of self-care.
