Registered social worker with extensive experience working with diverse children, youth, and families in the child welfare, mental health, and youth criminal justice systems.
Specializes in working with children and youth who have experienced developmental trauma, adverse childhood experiences and those involved in the child welfare system. Specifically, I have competencies working in the areas of attachment, disruptive behaviors, grief and loss.
I embrace a strength-based approach that empowers children and families to work through complex issues impacting their overall mental health and well-being.
At the Ottawa Centre for Resilience (OCFR) I use a brain-based approach to improving the problems children and youth come struggle with in an effort to increase their daily functioning. These services are grounded in an understanding of child development and how stress and adversity can derail healthy development.
