Support Staff - Intervention Services
I was given the privilege of joining the Alternative School Centre in November 2016, as the Addictions Counsellor. I am currently a Registered Therapeutic Counsellor that specializes in Substance Abuse and Addiction concerns of youth between the ages of 13 years old and 26 years old. I am a firm believer that most addictive behaviour is a symptom of a larger "struggle" and by identifying that "struggle", minimizing its effects and learning new coping and/or life skills; management of any addiction will have a more successful outcome.
Areas of Specialized Knowledge:
