I have worked as a counsellor and case manager for over 20 years. My past experience has involved working with people in addiction and recovery. My experience also extends to and is not inclusive of, the following issues - grief and loss, trauma, self-esteem, guilt, shame, rejection, anxiety and depression, to name a few. I have also had experience working with culturally diverse communities. I have strong listening and encouragement skills which allow people to feel safe in counselling sessions.
