Description

I am a Registered Social Worker and a Child and Youth Care Practitioner with almost 20 years combined experience working with children, youth, individuals and families in a variety of settings. I use a warm, empathetic eclectic approach and focus on relationship building. I will work alongside you and follow your lead using a strength-based, non-judgmental approach.
I provide a free consultation for you to ask questions and determine if this will be a good fit. I offer services in both English and Spanish, and want to help you in understanding your needs and supporting your mental health.
