Let me introduce myself, I am Patti and I'm a registered Social Worker with the Ontario College of Social Workers and Social Service Workers and a member of the Ontario Association of Social Workers, Canadian Association Workers, Bereavement Ontario Network and the Death Doula Ontario Network. 

 

While I work with people experiencing chronic stress, depression, anxiety and other mental health struggles my area of expertise is in traumatic loss, death and non-death losses such as life-altering diagnosis, brain injury/concussion, life-limiting diagnosis, end-of-life, and grief & bereavement. I offer counselling and support services to individuals and caregivers, and educational opportunities to groups and organizations.

With over 25 years of experience working with a diverse clientele of children, adolescents, and adults in healthcare and education, as well as many personal experiences of navigating traumatic events. I have a deeper understanding of the turmoil and heaviness experienced in stressful times and am here to help you find a way through.

 

My goal is to create a brave and compassionate space so that together we can explore challenges and find resolution, solutions and resources to best support you. I use a client-centred, collaborative approach as what you are experiencing situation is unique to you using a wide range of trauma-informed approaches to fit your needs. When struggling with life challenges, we can quickly lose hope, together we can find a way through these challenging times and foster new hope for a better tomorrow.
