“I find it very rewarding and feel privileged to be able to help people empower themselves to achieve a healthier and happier future. It is my privilege to assist individuals on their recovery journey, as they begin to first identify and then navigate through their personal barriers, challenges and adversities – away from addictions and towards wellness. With compassionate care, I endeavour to impart knowledge and practical skills to clients and their families, to help prevent the return to addictive behaviours and the often-devastating consequences that follow.
