As a Registered Social Worker holding a Master of Arts Degree I have been fortunate to gain 25 years of experience as a Counsellor, Instructor, Investigator and a Leader both in the private and public sector. With these roles, I have had the great opportunity to provide counselling and learning to people of all ages and stages of life, organizations such as Schools, Health Care and in the business sector.
Empowerment results in a healthier person who is making constructive choices, is understanding oneself, has increased motivation, increased social skills and healthier relationships.
Creating counselling environments for individuals, couples, and groups that result in taking the steps forward is my priority.
In addition to providing counselling, I specialize in investigative services, interest based mediation and team building for organizations and licensing bodies throughout the country. I am certified as a Specialized Investigator with CLEAR and have multiple years conducting investigations, teaching investigation training and providing effective team building strategies and programs.
