I am a social worker who believes in the power of persons and peoples: I work with clients to create opportunities for healing and growth.
My background lies in fitness, having worked as a personal trainer and yoga instructor for a decade. I have seen the healing power of movement, and mindfulness unfold in this work. This brought me into the field of social work, working at the Ottawa Distress Centre, where I worked extensively within the field of crisis and suicide intervention, as both front-line support, and as community educator delivering trainings such as active listening, limits and boundaries, mental health awareness and Living Works ASIST. I am a Bronze Level ASIST trainer, working for Talk Tools Training. I also work at Vesta Recovery Program for Women Inc., as support staff. At Vesta, I have delivered therapeutic groups concerning the importance of life basics, boundaries, and other related topics. I also deliver a trauma based yoga program at Vesta. I keep up to date with the latest trauma based research, understanding the importance of melding mindfulness techniques with traditional therapeutic approaches.
In practice, I work to combine a solid knowledge of the neurobiological underpinnings of trauma while providing a safe and welcoming environment, creatively combining these aspects of care to customise healing journeys in partnership with my clients.
