Social Worker, Zootherapist
I have been a social worker (B.S.W.) since 2016. I am a member of the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers, and also of the Ordre des travailleurs sociaux et des thérapeutes conjugaux et familiaux du Québec. I have certification in the animal-assisted therapy approach. I worked with various clients during the past years, including children and families experiencing a crisis, living in a poverty situation, or having difficulties regarding their behaviours or mental health. I also worked with adults who wanted to achieve social reinsertion due to mental health challenges and elders who lived in a long-term care facility. I worked in intercultural communities and with Natives people. I work in a community mental health agency: the Phoenix Centre for Children and Families. My various experiences developed my knowledge about different challenges and issues. As a military spouse, I consider myself aware of the multiple difficulties that military families and spouses may experience. I am available to offer support to families going through the changes brought by an army career. I value empowerment mainly: everyone has the power to take control over their situation and have the capacity to make their personal experience a better one.
