Registered Social Worker.
I love seeing people be the best version of themselves. Even more, I love being part of their journey to help them get there. This life isn't meant to be lived alone, I believe we need one another to learn and grow. My goal is to provide a safe place to help individuals come together to learn about themselves and to better their lives. We all have something to work on and that is okay, we are human. However, we don't have to do it alone and it doesn't have to be boring. We can have fun, we can dive deep into our souls and we can build relationships all at the same time.
Bettering yourself shouldn't cost hundreds of dollars per session, I believe in offering an affordable alternative to traditional counselling that can have similar, or even better results.
At the young age of 17, I became a Nursing Assistant in a well known hospital in Calgary. At 19 yrs old I married and moved around Canada as my spouse followed his dreams in the Air Force. Born in Calgary, we were first stationed to Quebec, then to B.C. 5 years of military life led us to seek stability and we moved back to the Calgary area (Airdrie, AB) where we have now been for 6 years.
In 2015 I graduated with my bachelors of Social Work from the University of Calgary. During my education I worked with at risk youth and post degree I have worked in a local non-profit providing affordable housing and crisis counselling. More recently, I have published a children's book called "Little Tommy Big Beliefs" that is now in its 2nd round of printing and is available at Indigo (Chapters).
Through all of this my family has grown and my spouse and I have had two beautiful babies and one fur baby.
This may all sound ideal, but life is never as perfect as it sounds. I have had to do a lot of soul searching and learning about what healthy relationships look like. What I am grateful for is that I never had to be alone on my journey, I always had great support from others and that is what I hope to provide, support. We all have our trials and tribulations but it is what we choose do with them that counts!
I am here for you today. This journey, that is soul crushing at times, doesn't have to be your fight you take on alone.
