Description

I have been a social worker for quite a few years now.  I greatly enjoy making a difference in some one’s life by helping them focus on their needs. I have over 7 years of counselling experience and treating clients for a range of psychosocial issues in our community, clinical and private settings.

In my most present role I manage a caseload of clients with complex needs, but my real expertise lies in treating anxiety, depression, relationship issues, women’s issues, and health-related issues. 

Furthermore, I have done case evaluations, psychological profiles,treatment plans and assessment.
