What is your role at the YWC?
I am a Social Worker and my role at YWC is clinical therapist. I meet with youth individually to support them in working through the difficulties presented by mental health or personal concerns. My goal is to pass along hope and help youth to recognize their strengths and reach their goals by providing strategies to manage the difficult stuff.
Best advice you’ve ever received
“In all the chaos, seek solitude. Because there you’ll discover that being is more important than having and that you’re worth more than the results of your efforts.”
