Social Worker

“I’m passionate about children, tweens and teens. I understand that being  anywhere from age of 10-14 can be a particularly challenging time on all fronts of development, whether it be personal, emotional, academic or behavioural related. I hope to support and help navigate today’s emerging youth work through pressures around family, society, peers, and help them in their transformation by guiding them to identify emotions, harness resiliency, and recover their strengths. “
