Description

I’m a Registered Social Worker with a heart for helping youth (ages 14+) and adults who think and perceive differently, particularly those with ADHD/Neurodivergence or those who may identify as Twice or Thrice exceptional. I also support those experiencing the complex challenges of substance use. My Neurodivergent experience has profoundly influenced my passion for sharing space in therapy with other neurodivergent people.
