20+ years providing counselling services and separation and divorce services
I am a social worker and hold a Master of Social Work degree from the University of Toronto, an Honours Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from York University, and a certificate in Addiction Studies from TAPE (Toronto Advanced Professional Education). I have also attended various trainings throughout my career, with a focus on high conflict separation and divorce and mental health and addictions. I am registered with The Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers (OCSWSSW), and a member of the Ontario Association of Social Workers (OASW), and the Association of Family & Conciliation Courts (AFCC - Ontario Chapter).
My employment experience was primarily in the child protection, children’s mental health, adult mental health and addiction fields and the criminal justice system. Since 2002, I have maintained a private practice in Toronto, providing counselling and separation and divorce services, and serve individuals, couples and families from all walks of life. Also since 2002, I have been a clinical panel member with the Office of the Children’s lawyer (Ontario Ministry of the Attorney General) conducting custody and access assessments for high conflict families and providing clinical assistance to lawyers representing children of high conflict families.
