I have two degrees: Bachelor of Social Work and a Masters of Social Work. I have worked as a mental health counsellor with a combination of private practice and in an acute care hospital setting for over 30 years. I have developed extensive knowledge and skills in working with all age groups. I use an interactional approach with clients and I start where "the client is at". I have a strong belief in client self determinism: choices and decision making. My focus is to empower clients and to assist them in making appropriate and healthy decisions in their lives. I take a strengths approach with clients to develop skills with coping and to enhance their lives.
