I grew up in a small community on the South Coast of Newfoundland. Ever since I was little, I always knew I wanted to work with and help. Initially, I explored nursing and although I loved the patients and my co-workers, I realized that this profession was not my future. Eventually, as I explored my options, I decided to obtain a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work.
 
This was when my life changed, thanks to an amazing field instructor who completely changed the way I looked at the world. She empowered me to step outside my comfort zone, encouraged me to ask for help when needed, and most importantly, she taught me how to relate to people, which is a skill I am most happy to own. I developed my ability to relate to others by trying my best to practice what I preached, right alongside my clients. As I was teaching them, I was also learning. I truly believe we teach each other.
 
I began my Social Work career as a Mental Health & Addiction Counselor in a remote Inuit Community on the North Coast of Labrador. During this experience, I learned so much and met some of the most resilient people I have ever meet. Following this, I moved to BC and after doing a few short-term jobs, I began working in Forensics and then Corrections. Working within these diverse systems allows me to work with very diverse groups of people. I work with those who experience FASD, Borderline Personality Disorders, Bi-Polar, Depression, Trauma, Anxiety and Addictions. I work with youth, adults, couples and families from diverse backgrounds. This diversity of experience has allowed me to view people and systems from a strengths-based perspective.
 
While completing my Masters in Social Work at UBC, I realized that I am a client-centered counselor. I use an array of therapeutic material and strategies, as this will depend on the individual and where they are at in terms of their well-being and treatment.
 As I thought about what being client-centered meant to me, I discovered that my goal is to help you envision, achieve, and maintain a healthier you. I believe in people and their capabilities. This means I believe in you and I am confident that together we can explore your choices. If we can discover our choices, we can envision our future and achieve our goals. Let’s get started.
