I am a Registered Social Worker (RSW). I received my Masters of Social Work degree from Wilfrid Laurier University.
I worked with a community counselling agency for thirteen years, providing counselling services to individuals, couples and families, as well as supervising interns during their placement. As part of my role, I worked at schools for the York Region District School Board and the Simcoe Muskoka District School Board, not only providing individual and group counselling to students and their families, but also supporting teachers and guidance staff. I have facilitated a variety of workshops, on topics such as parenting, emotional regulation, bullying, depression, anxiety, and suicide prevention, to students, parents and staff at various schools within these school boards, as well as to Montessori schools within the community.
I am a member of the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW) and the Ontario Association of Social Workers (OASW).
