I earned a BSW in 1976 at King’s College, UWO, London ON and a MSW in 1983 at Wilfrid Laurier University, Waterloo ON.
Over the years, I have worked as a medical social worker in hospitals for a total of 15 years, and this exposure to patients’ health issues and personal concerns has taught me to tune in and listen to a person’s individual experience. I also assess family interactions and promote healthy relationships, to live their lives optimally.
My 30+ years as a private counsellor allowed me to update my skills. Trauma therapy, Critical Incident, Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy and EMDR were highlights.
