Empathy and Listening have always been skills that have come naturally to me since I was a child. I would actively listen to those I interacted with including friends and family, gathering necessary details that helped me develop meaningful relationships throughout my life. I have often been called a Highly Sensitive Person.

I have been a Registered Professional Counselor since 2011 following a career as a Long Term Care Aide for 26 years where I was thoughtful in meeting the needs of my clients overall mental and physical health. It was important for me to take the time to meet the needs of clients coming from a place of compassion, empathy, kindness and care.

The past 26 years of working in Health Care made me realize that I needed more education and why I advanced in Applied Psychology and Counselling which helped create positive interactions between myself, the families and the other nursing supports that were in place.

I became a strong advocate for those who needed an added voice, working together with family and other team members that supported their emotional, mental, physical and spiritual needs were met, allowing them improved quality of life.

I was a Continuing Care Assistant to clients who were high risk in psychiatry, palliative care, Dementia/Alzheimer’s, had mobility issues and worked in home care, acute care, emergency care, critical care and transporting stable patients by ambulance. I supported the client’s activities of daily living, giving medications and other details that were necessary in meeting clients goals from a detailed care plan.
