I am a registered social worker with both The Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers and the British Columbia College of Social Workers. I hold Masters Degrees in Social Work and Adult Education (Counselling Specialization). My background includes over twenty-five years of front line work in addictions, mental health, Hepatitis C, HIV, public policy development, child protection, social justice advocacy and working with families who have experienced conflict and violence. My work in addictions includes substance use treatment, harm reduction, withdrawal management, homelessness, concurrent disorders, including severe and persistent mental health. Currently, I work in the Addictions and Mental Health Program, Niagara Health System (NHS) and as a Facilitator with the Adult Education Program, Faculty of Education, Brock University.

Within a general practice, my specialties include substance abuse, stress management, anxiety, survivors of sexual abuse, PTSD, interpersonal violence and life transitions. The therapy I provide is individualized according to each client's strengths, needs, and goals. Committed to ongoing skills development and the best care for my clients, I receive regular consultation and clinical supervision for my counselling practice work.

With gratitude, I have walked alongside the path of many people struggling, who taught me beyond my years of education, what it means to be resilient—in those whispers deep inside them to still hold on and even, find value in life again. It is this knowledge and commitment to the people I work with, that motivates my practice today. Although there is no guarantee this will work for everyone, or that what is right for someone else, is right for you, counselling may be an option. So if you feel you have somehow, somewhere steered off course in your life’s journey, I invite you to consider working with me to help set a new path of hope today.
