“I feel extremely privileged to have the opportunity to practice meaningful social work with children, youth and families every day. It is not lost on me that during some of the most challenging times in my clients’ lives, I have the opportunity to support, educate and bare witness to the incredible resiliency that young people can demonstrate. My ongoing clinical work with children and families has cemented my belief that counselling can be an enormously powerful connector within families and can lead to happier, healthier kids and parents. I feel lucky and proud to do what I do!”
